I stayed at the associated hotel for 2 weeks and ate here everyday. Not only is the food fantastic but the staff are also so welcoming. It is a little expensive but legitimately worth every single penny.

Great sevice. Food cooked to perfection. Cannot understand why they don't advertise themselves better. We dined there whilst staying at hotel. Only drawback I think would be the parking.

This restaurant used to be part of Harefield Manor. It no longer exists. The menu is still displayed on the hotel wall and awards inside the hotel. Since its heyday, the whole place has gone down hill thanks to a greedy owner putting profits before staff and pride.

I've stayed at the hotel and eaten at this restaurant many times over the years. Now in new ownership and all being gradually renovated. I think the menu has been slimmed down a bit since last year, no bad thing! Mostly Italian based food. The soup of the day was sweet pepper and very good. The duck breast, described as... More

I went to this restaurant New Years Eve. The food was first class, the Chef excelled himself. There was a variety of dishes prepared for each course, and everyone in our party thoroughly enjoyed each course even though we had something different.The champagne sorbet was heaven, nothing Seemed to be spared in the ingredients. We are returning to this venue... More

First of all, the food was excellent, however there are certainly issues with this restaurant. Unfortunately the reception area, and the restaurant area appear very run down. As previous reviewers have stated, the carpet is grubby and needs replacing. Because there were so few people dining, there was little atmosphere. The head waiter, or manager tried very hard and obviously... More

My sister had her wedding evening meal here as the reception was held in the Hotel where it is situated. I was expecting great things but it was all a little disappointing. I had the sea food paella which was passable but none of those who ordered steaks got them cooked how they had requested. My sister couldn't eat the... More

I went to this restaurant last week with a small group of friends. We had all previously been before about 2/3 years ago. What a difference this experience was from our last visit. To start with the reception area and the bar area is really looking shabby. The carpet in the reception area was filthy! Now to the restaurant -... More

★☆☆☆☆ We went to paparazzi last night! For a hen night, 10 people didn't show for the hen night. We explain this to the manger before we began to order food. He was very rude and started shouting!

Me and my partner eat here all the time and it never disappoints, the lobster ravioli for starters is great and one of the best raviolis I have ever had. Lamb shank is always amazing and the fish options are great too. I have been here on countless occasions and never been disappointed, the drinks are a little steep but... More
