Sadly since my previous visits the dining room has deteriorated. Food is still very pricey but is no longer worth the money. Service is very bad. We were a party of 8 with reservations. We waited an hour to be seated and another hour and a half for our entrees which were ill prepared and missing accompaniments which were on...

We recently returned from another stay at the Tufted Duck, and again found the staff here top rate. They are warm and welcoming, and eager to make your stay a pleasant one. Our trip was unexpected, but our concerns about last minute availability for our family were quickly addressed via email, and our rooms were ready and waiting upon arrival....

The bathroom was clean and the shower good. Everyone we had contact with on the staff was very helpful. The dinner we had in...

Having enjoyed several lovely meals here in the past we gathered to celebrate a special family birthday. From the outset we were disappointed. No high chair despite being requested when we booked, when one was found it was disgustingly dirty. Wrong drinks, chipped glasses, long waits promised if we ordered from the menu instead of taking the carvery. Cold food,...
