Recently had lunch here. Vegetarian options limited but side order salad was huge. Expensive but to be expected at this kind of hotel. Nice views over golf course.

Excellent food and service. Waiter even took the time to show me how to fold a napkin in a Christmas tree shape. Didn't feel rushed at all.

Lovely food - lovely staff - nice wine. Large selection of drinks available. Food was quickly prepared fresh and included in our spa break. Wine was £5.65 (merlot) and £6 (rose) for 175ml glass.

Ate at the Claret Jug whilst staying at the hotel. The food was good and service was attentive. Some of the dishes we ordered were better than others. I had the fish main, which was very good, as was the cheesecake. My friend had the chicken which was very dry. Very impressed that they had a vegan menu, which my... More

Waiting staff comical they were so bad. Finally I was given chicken in my vegetarian stew. manager failed to take it away hence letting countless others eat the veggie... More

We were there last Friday for a 'Winter Wonderland' themed night as our work's Christmas party. The only thing 'Winter Wonderland' was a little white tree in the middle of our table with fairy lights on. The bar was under staffed and under stocked. When we arrived the main bar wasn't even open so they sent us downstairs where we... More

Miserable unhelpful staff, overbooked, food cold and disgusting, management fobbed everybody off with room service which was then overbooked and therefore had to wait 50 minutes for that too.

I attended a birthday celebration with friends after a day in the spa. The restaurant is really nice in terms of decor and the staff friendly. Unfortunately the food was average and for some of my friends very poor. They raised this with the waiter who agreed their dish was not up to standard - why did he recommend it?... More

The light lunch we were served as part of the spa deal was obviously plated up well in advance which meant the lettuce was limp and the potato salad was stuck to the plate. Quite tasty but Little Chef could have produced this!

We visit this hotel many times a year using it as a good meeting point for business and pleasure. We were there Saturday lunchtime. Their was a wedding in the main building we had to go into the golf clubhouse for lunch. Club house seemed to be run by inexperienced junior staff who seemed fed up and overworked. We ordered...

Description
The Claret Jug is our golf clubhouse restaurant. Overlooking the course, there are spectacular views and food to match. The Claret Jug is a marvellous informal restaurant. It's perfect for a cup of morning coffee or classic light meals cooked with contemporary flair. Golfers drop in for a drink and a meal after their round and guests are equally drawn from the hotel by the traditional dishes on offer and the spectacular views over the course. Thirsty? We've wines from around the world, fine Whiskies from Scotland and a selection of casked ales. Our food philosophy is simple: Legendary local ingredients, prepared to perfection.
