Just had a meal at the Lansdowne Strand this evening. Went with friends for a birthday celebration who said they had heard the hotel had been refurbished and that the food was greatly improved. Don't know what it was like before but the meal we had this evening was first class. The starter was delicious and the main course of...

This is very much a confused offer. Restaurant clearly offering a good menu that matches the refurb...lots of effort done to revamp the interior but ruined but the fact that it feels like a metro pub attracting lots of young people waiting for the club's to open. The accommodation is horrendous and in desperate need of an upgrade. I was...

Stayed at the hotel for one night. This hotel is centrally located in the heart of Wiltshire so making ideal for someone not familiar with the area having places like Stonehenge, Bath, Salisbury and Longleat in close proximity. This is a large hotel and the reception, bar, public rooms and first floor rooms are of an excellent standard. The website...

We went to eat at the Lansdowne, having heard it was much improved. Which it was. Excellent meal and very helpful service. Certainly a change for the good, as others have said, and a welcome addition to local dining choices. We will be back.

Had heard good things about the refurbished restaurant so decided to give it a try for our 25th anniversary meal and we were not disappointed. The food was excellent and beautifully presented. The staff were very attentive and friendly and we will definitely be back. Makes a nice change to be able to walk somewhere and not have to drive...

Just had lunch here, can't fault the decor, service or food. What a difference, well done! We would recommend it. The restaurant is excellent and relatively inexpensive with a small but nice choice of wines.

Recently visited the Lansdowne Strand and was very impressed with the recent refit, as you walked in there was a lovely smell of wood burning fire and a warm welcome from the bar staff. From beginning to end nothing was too much trouble and we were able to feel relaxed and at home in quite sophisticated surroundings. We started with...

Tried out the Lansdowne for the first time after reading positive reviews and they are well justified.A comfortable,attractive dining room staffed by smart,polite well trained young people whose service was first class.This was matched by the excellent food produced by obviously well trained kitchen staff.The pork steaks we sampled were as close to perfection as anyone could cook a piece...

Hello Sheepclan, What an excellent review! Our coffee is quite fantastic, isn't it? We use Illy beans, freshly ground to order and ensure the team know their mocha from their cappuccino to ensure these great beans get looked after the way they ought! Perhaps when you next visit you should try our Cafe Anglaise- it's the perfect marriage of sweet...

The last time we ate at the Lansdowne it was a disaster, cold and unwelcoming, they couldn't get anything right, not even the free bottle of ice cold red wine, over the years have seen this place go from bad to worst, getting very dirty and shabby, such a shame being the first place you see when you come into...
