Myself and 4 colleagues dined in the Williams Bar for our works Christmas Lunch in December. The food was nice, although when the desserts came one had to be sent back as there was a hair in it. It was only once the coffee was ordered things took a turn for the worse as the waiter arrived with two latte's... More

Visited The William Bar & Restaurant for morning coffee and teacakes with 4 friends. It was a really lovely experience, the place was beautifully clean, coffee and tea cakes very nice, staff were excellent. Nothing was too much trouble. The ambiance was lovely with the tasteful Christmas lights and soft music. Would highly Reccomend.

We booked to have a meal in the evening. When we arrived at 8.10pm, there were only three tables occupied, the rest were empty. Nobody bothered to take our name and were asked to pick a table! There was no atmosphere at all and the lighting was cold white lights as a opposed to warm lighting which would have made... More

We arrived for an early Sunday Lunch....12am ... all very good....there is a car park directly outside the Restaurant (40 or more cars) and additional parking 50mts away... great location. Stunning countryside views and a river running through the grounds...Inside the restaurant is in two sections ... long and thin..... and another squarish.... overall though a small restaurant...which was perfect....They...

I only had lunch in the William restaurant, but for a lunch for three people (no alcohol) the bill came to over £65. Mum had fish and chips, I had burger and chips and my sister had risotto. It was not worth the price. My burger was extremely well cooked. However the chips were very nice.

We came here for afternoon tea and it was really nice. The tea itself was a traditional cream tea with a lovely selection of sandwiches, scones and petit fours. They catered wonderfully for the children too. Service was friendly and the place itself was nice. For us the only (minor) downside was the noise - the room was very full... More

Five of us dined here for a late Sunday lunch. Although we had a table reservation and the restaurant was not too busy it took a good 15 minutes before we had any service.
