My husband and I ate dinner and breakfast here during our stay at the Grand. Could not not have asked for better. The staff were very courteous and professional and the food was delicious on every occasion. The room and beautiful furnishings are also a pleasure to experience.

The evening started well with drinks in the bar/lounge area. A waiter came and took our food order at 7:50pm. At 8:45pm I had to go to the restaurant and ask if we were actually going to get dinner tonight? Food arrived, a soft duck wrapped in breadcrumb was ordered, what arrived was a partially coated hard boiled egg. The... More

If only I lived closer, I would regularly visit the Garden restaurant. Sunday lunch was sensational. Service is unobtrusive but attentive. You will not be disappointed.

I had the lamb with mashed potatoes and broccoli with a treacle pudding and my partner the chicken dinner with a sweet . 2 glasses of wine and a bacardi and coke all came to £103. The food was very good but I feel the dining experience (the waiters ,wine waiter and the Garden Restaurant itself) eclipsed it. It has... More

The room is magnificent, service excellent. But the meal is a let down. I had an apple based soup, which was mediocre, followed by the steak and ale pie, far too salty. It was served with mash and carrots. Caf grub. The cheese platter was excellent. My daughter had the goat cheese tart which was no better than a slice... More

Although the decor is looking tired, we spent a lovely couple of hours in the Grand Hotel. Service is great, efficient and very relaxed. The atmosphere is relaxing and overall the experience was good. Starters and deserts were excellent. The main was good but could have been more refined. Not blown away by the food but of a very good... More

If you like traditional English Fayre served with panache, then the Garden Room Restaurant in the Grand Hotel is the place to head for. Barbara, Martin, Ronnie and all the senior staff in the Restaurant take your enjoyment very seriously, and will bend over backwards to see you enjoy your meal. Veggies will be pleased to know that they have... More

We dined in the Garden Restaurant on two consecutive nights, as the Mirabelle was fully booked. Service attentive without being imposing. The Somellier was knowledgeable and gave good direction for wine choice. Food was well presented and superbly cooked.

This place serves the best Sunday lunch anywhere. Superb beef is carved from the trolley. Puddings are also served from a trolley (so much better than choosing from a menu!). It would be nice if they had more things on the menu at dinner which are flambéed at the table, in the traditional way (and which is so rare to... More
