Another well presented excellent meal at the Winepress. The service, as usual, was impeccable. The small menu had something for everyone and great value considering the quality of the good. I particularly enjoyed the Stone Bass. Recommended.

Went as part of a package, so was not expecting an average meal. Have to say very pleased with what we got. Nice restaurant, attentive staff, was planning only 2 course but the Moules Mariniere, Stone Bass which was superb and had to try the Eton Mess. Very nice ambience and will be going back at some point.

I have eaten here alone and with our company at team dinners. The food whilst very good is not that varied, but what they give you is good quality. The buffet breakfast is varied and plenty to eat. It has pleasant surroundings and the staff are very friendly and accommodating.

At the end of the day this place hasn't succeeded in raising itself above the standard of a fairly good hotel restaurant. The wine list is of course comprehensive (given gthe name!) but the food choice and quality doesn't keep up. As far as I could see it changes very rarely so doesn't make good use of seasonal products and... More
