My husband and I had lunch today and we whole-heartedly agree with the Stella B's review. I spoke to the duty manager who knows our thoughts on our very disappointing meal there today, and we will not be going back.

The single most dissappointing meal my wife and I have had. Crowded bar, untrained staff and unexceptional highly over-seasoned food . If you care about food and are thinking of booking this restaurant for a gastronomic experience, really don't bother. If you are just looking for a good pub, find one where you can be comfortably seated for a drink... More

We had waited months for today to arrive, taking time off work to celebrate our 10 year anniversary & desperate to try the delights a 2* restaurant could offer. We opted for the a la carte menu & sampled starters, main & desserts. Sadly both my husband and I left feeling underwhelmed, the food was nice but nothing at all... More

It really was a magical weekend, we had a couple of drinks first . Lovely welcoming bar with leather settees. Great service and staff. The restaurant was a lot... More

Amazing food in a lovely atmosphere. I recommend the steak which was cooked to perfection. The waiters cannot do enough for you!

Stayed here for my wife's birthday. 2 nights in the Limousin room were very good. Big room, enormous bath and separate shower, nespresso machine, very nicely done out with beams etc and nice touches of Danish pastries and cookies and choccies. Only problem for me was that the bed was too soft for my liking but that's just a matter... More

This is a treat worth waiting for. From the moment of a pre lunch gin, picked by Tom Kerridge to the coffee afterwards, the standard of the offering was superb. The starter of haggis with crispy lamb was good, but the salmon parve was (tried a bit) was stunning. My main course, which was the Venison again really tasty, whilst... More

First time visit for my husbands birthday. The food was amazing. I had the parfait starter, pork main and soufflé dessert - delicious. The staff were extremely friendly and attentive and although it was fully booked the restaurant didnt feel cramped, and the staff didn't appear rushed. Would definitely come again.

I have mixed feelings after booking months ahead for a much-anticipated special occasion visit to Tom Kerridge's flagship establishment. The low key and relaxed informality was a big surprise, given the H&F's star status. I'm not complaining about this, although a little more glamour might have taken some of the pain out of the final bill. Unlike other reviewers, we... More
