Attended New years day dinner here. Carvery dinners do work well if managed properly, however it didn't work very well for our party on this occasion. In order for a carvery to run smoothly, it is imperative that order is kept and levels of vegetables, potatoes, gravy etc etc are monitored closely to prevent diners experiencing an empty buffet when...

I visited The Tufted Duck Hotel on Christmas Day for lunch with my family. As always the food and staff were first class. I enjoyed that there was no rush of turning tables and we had a relaxed lunch at our own pace. We will be back next year.

I arrived exhausted after a 10 hour overnight drive from London to be met by the hotel's very friendly staff who helped me unload my theatrical props into a spare room on the ground floor and showed me to my delightful executive suite upstairs. In what seemed like no time at all, I was relaxing in the very comfortable bed...

I went for a meal on the 18th December in the evening, the warm welcome and exemplary service was only surpassed by the exquisite food. I had goats cheese tart and my friend had the ham hock terrine, we both had the Salmon. The Salmon was so fresh and light and it was all finished off with a great cup...

Enjoyed a lovely Carvery Lunch last Sunday at the Tufted Duck Hotel staff were very friendly & efficient. The meal was lovely with 3 choices of meat (Turkey Beef and Gammon) Lots of lovey vegetable & trimmings as well as homemade Yorkshire Puddings which were to die for, will most defiantly be visiting again very soon.

Sadly since my previous visits the dining room has deteriorated. Food is still very pricey but is no longer worth the money. Service is very bad. We were a party of 8 with reservations. We waited an hour to be seated and another hour and a half for our entrees which were ill prepared and missing accompaniments which were on...
