We visited with my partner's mother, gran and gran's friend, who came from Yorkshire, for afternoon tea as a little treat for Mother's Day. The afternoon tea consists of hot drinks (loose leaf tea's coffee or hot chocolate), finger sandwiches, cakes/sweets, scones, jams and curds. To make it easy as possible all you have to do is choose your hot... More

Booked as a birthday treat for an Afternoon Tea-loving, vegan friend, we were excited to try out The Lawns at Thornton Hall. The dining room was lovely and the perfect setting for a girly afternoon. Having stated on our booking that one of the three Afternoon Tea's (the birthday girl's!) would be 'vegan-friendly', we were looking forward to ensuring our... More

Booked an overnight stay which came with an afternoon tea. Had both the savoury and sweet teas, with bottomless cups of tea. The sandwiches were nice, with cheese and pickle, beef and horseradish (which we're not fans of horseradish) and salmon and cream cheese, also a chicken caesar mini wrap. All of them were lovely. The venison slider was gorgeous,... More

My partner and I booked the early diner dinner menu. We were there in plenty of time but got told to hurry up and choose at 6.45pm. The high pitched bar person wanted us to go straight to the table but we didn't. The aperol/ gin cocktail at 10.00 was over orange juiced and amateurish ( 2 slices of orange... More

Myself and my husband and son had dinner at the lawns on New Year's Day . As usual the service was faultless, however the a la carte menu was disappointing and was over loaded with fish dishes . We have eaten at the lawns on several occasions and this is the first time we have been let down. The food... More

The one word, outstanding, says it all for the food and service. A quirky menu that delights with every bite. A whole host of surprise extra courses too. Friendly and professional service all around. Chef should be credited with more rosettes as the cooking here is worthy of 4. Looking forward to returning for the tasting menu with matched wines... More

I was very impressed by the menu, and the food couldn't be faulted. It was delicious, and the presentation was impeccable. The service really let it down, we were given different versions of the menu, staff gave us conflicting information about moving from the bar to the restaurant, and when serving the food they made patronising comments. These included "you... More
