The menu is very poor. It's really like a cafe and not a resturant. The ingredients are cheap, the food was just warm and over cooked. Service is poor. Cutlery was dirty as were the glasses. Very dirty and grubby.

Don't know really what to say. This place would be crazy busy if it was in Beaconsfield, but it's not it's in the middle of nowhere. Staff were courteous but their service was all over the place . We were the only table dining on a Wednesday evening for my father-in-laws birthday . To say there was no atmosphere was... More

The garden is nice. There was only a bar man who also waited tables and one other couple on a Thursday evening. The food is expensive and is ok but there are too many other places around that serve good food at cheaper prices. The menus were tatty and dirty. The table had no table cloth and just paper napkins... More

My friend booked a table for a surprise for my birthday lunch. At the time of booking the staff failed to mention that a major event was due to happen on the same day & therefore the whole of the surrounding area would be in accessible by road. Consequently, when we arrived by taxi were turned away by police/Marshalls &... More

My partner and I stayed at the Sanctum Hotel for a birthday celebration. The restaurant is such a disappointment. We had dinner in the evening. The wrong starter was brought out. They took one away and left us with just the one so I had to eat alone. I had the prawn starter which wasn't great. When the other correct... More

It's a strange place in the middle of nowhere, the food was excellent, everything was cooked to perfection, I went straight to the main course which was a chicken breast served with a lovely salad. Flavours were fab including the Eton mess dessert, my companion had pan fried scallops- again perfectly cooked followed by the lamb ribs again fantastic. We... More

We booked a table of 14 for the day time of my hen do. We all had afternoon tea, some with prosecco. I can not understand the negative reviews at all, as everything we experienced was absolutely fantastic! The service was timely, and the staff were very friendly and attentive. We had 2 lactose intolerant and one gluten free (previously... More

This place has to be the worst place I've ever been to. We bought my Aunty pat here for her 80th birthday as a treat. After booking a week in advance only to find out on arrival that we had no table so we wait why they get one sorted. Then we wait for over an hour for our cream... More
