Ate here as part of a Wowcher deal for dinner bed and breakfast. The Stuart is a beautiful panelled dinning room with the Great Hall next door (that has space for approx. 2 dozen covers). For dinner we both had ham hock terrine and beef blade for starters and main course. Both nicely presented and tasty. Although available there was... More

We booked to return to the hotel as part of our anniversary, the hotel was our wedding venue and we thought it would be a nice way to commemorate 3 years since our happy day. The service and communication between the waiters and kitchen staff is the main issue with the low rating. We waited 45 minutes for starters No... More

We visited Stuart Restaurant as part of our Living Social deal. The restaurant was fairly busy. We were seated as soon as we arrived. We also ordered our food fairly quickly. The both had pigeon to start, which had a supplement of £3.50 each. Well after waiting around 40 minutes for the starter to arrive we were somewhat underwhelmed to... More

We dined in The Stuart Restaurant as part of a two night stay at the Hotel (see separate poor review) for our Anniversary weekend, booked through Secret Escapes and reserved a table by email in advance (others checking in were getting 9.00 pm tables). The room is gorgeous, historic, grand and imposing with lots of wood, high ceilings, wonderful windows,... More

Lovely dining rooms at Billesly, great buffet style breakfast was a bit chaotic on first morning ( 3 night stay ) the young waiter did not seem to know what to do and looked a bit lost but was on his own. Dinner was superbly cooked and presented. No change to menu over our three day stay.

A lovely oak-paneled room and the evening started off as a pleasant experience. We were greeted and shown to our table and the menu explained to us. Our orders were taken very quickly and the starters and mains arrived in reasonable time. The food was very good and the hotel was keen to say that they were looking to gain... More

Gosh - where to start. Crumbs on my chair when I sat down. Really very average entrée - 3 tiny pieces of chicory accompanied by 2 tiny dollops of ricotta - very little dressing, if any, but to make things worse the waiter introduced it as the goats cheese entrée, confusing us both. Main of Sea Trout was lukewarm and... More
