* Based on a three course dinner, half a bottle of wine, coffee, cover charge, service and VAT.

“Just reopened and even better than before”, this ultra-lux country-house hotel has an unusual ‘high-concept’ buffet-style dining room inspired by Asian food halls, with chefs cooking at eight ‘live action food stations’ (robata grill, seafood, tandoor oven et al), from which guests choose as much as they want. It’s not fine dining, but it is good-value in its way and it’s something-for-everyone style suits entertaining or a family get-together.

Even those who “would not usually choose a buffet restaurant” found this plush country house pile’s dining room to their liking, with “lots of choice” and “above average quality” (“you won’t go home hungry”); regulars meanwhile proclaim it “a great venue for a celebration”.

The “superb buffet” (“great for all the family”“our granddaughters loved it”) with “a top mix of everything” maintains the appeal of the “always-buzzy” and “great-fun” second dining room of this posh country house hotel.

"Serving a-la-carte rather than their usual buffet due to covid rules has improved this restaurant in my opinion. The beef wellington was truly melt in the mouth tender."
