I had the pleasure of visiting Great Fosters last Sunday for a family celebration lunch. It had taken me quite a while to settle on the venue but I’m so glad I did, helped along with very positive TripAdviser reviews. There were 10 of us and everyone thoroughly enjoyed themselves, all remarking on such a lovely venue, attentive staff and delicious food. We had a large table in the centre of the Estate Grill restaurant and had a wonderful time.
Most of us had 3 courses, including starters of dressed crab, soup and cheese soufflés; roast beef (with amazing Yorkshire pudding), fillet steak and chateaubriand; desserts of poached pear, vanilla cream with berry sorbet and chocolate praline; along with champagne and wines. We thoroughly enjoyed it all.
We had brought a cake with us too which the staff had cut up for us, even providing cake boxes for people to take home, seeing as most of us were rather full by then! Staff were very attentive and friendly without being too obtrusive. Daniel, the Maître d’, was great and joined in the banter when called upon!
The restaurant looks like it has been tastefully refurbished and we had a friendly welcome on arrival. It has a lovely ambience, special without being too formal. Perfect for the occasion.
Unfortunately, we ran out of time to have a look around the grounds on this occasion but we will definitely be back in the summer for afternoon tea and will have a walk round then as they look beautiful.
A very memorable day for all the right reasons.
Thank you to all the Great Fosters team for such a fabulous time. Just like Arnie, "we'll be back"!
