Not a lot of options for lunch in the area, so a "country house hotel" seemed like a good bet - but how wrong can one be? Characterless establishment, with an ambience about as far removed from that of a "country house" as one could imagine. Service unfriendly and extremely slow. The menu reminded us of pub grub from the... More

Booked ahead to make sure of a table. On arrival was shown into a side room, where about 25 people were having a family / genealogical meet-up. Felt a tad embarassed to be in on such a private occasion. Other diners, not associated with said meet-up, were also in that room. Nobody else should have been placed with that company,... More

Stopped here for a coffee on the way back from stunning eoropie beach. Surroundings and the restaurant are beautiful and the coffee was perfect. The kids loved their ice cream and with large party in to dine we managed to sneak a look at some of the meals on offer. Suffice to say a visit to sample these hot offerings... More

I agree with one of the other reviews, this is not a country house hotel, it is a motel with, rather oddly, a huge photograph of Canary Wharf taken from the other side of the Millennium Dome. I'm really not sure why anyone would think visitors to Lewis want to look at this view?! The food is pub grub at... More

When I see 'Country House' I expect to see certain efforts at high standards. This is not the case. Generally the food served was fairly standard pub grub. The gravadlax starter with a well dressed salad was good. However the lasagne lacked the Italian flavours of garlic and oregano and the cheese topping tasted like cheap cheddar. Unlikely to return.

We have a meal here every time we visit Lewis. There was six adults, and two children on this occasion, and we all thought the meals were excellent. We ordered two battered haddock with chips, two steak and ale pies with chips, the venison and guiness pie was not available, one roast beef meal, and one beefburger meal. The children... More

We have had great food in the past in the Borve Country House Hotel. We went in at 4pm the place was empty and a snack menu was on offer. The baked potatoes were £7.95 each and just not worth it. My daughter had a coleslaw baked pot and it arrived at a chilled temprature. My husbands was warm. My... More
