My family and I had a delicious dinner at The Smokehouse. Kind of wished we had been staying there as well, as it had a lovely ye olde feel to it and my children liked exploring the garden. We made a reservation, although it was...More

Food was moderate. Not a wow factor. For the price, its not worth it. Excellent garden n well maintained. Beautiful flowers.

The atmosphere, ambiance, landscaping, garden, overall are amazing. But other than that, the staffs, the service, the food menu pricing are terrible. The staffs (and the manager) looks tiring. They greet and welcome you without a smile. It's a total disappointment once my foot stepped...More

The restaurant serves traditional English Teas and dinner. We have excellent service every time we're there. The maitre'd would serve you drinks in the drawing room, while your table is being prepared. Sit by the fireplace in the midst of the authentic Tudor interior surrounded...More

We stopped here for lunch and really enjoyed the sandwiches and scones so booked to come back for dinner. We both had steak which was pretty good. The restaurant has a lovely atmosphere harking back to the colonial era and food seems generally good. The...More

Outstandingly poor service for dinner. Took just short of an hour after ordering before being invited to the table. By which time we had already decided to leave. Several enquiries prior to departing were answered with particularly nonchalant "... it's coming..." responses without any real...More
