We had a very pleasant dinner to celebrate a friend's birthday. We could of had the degustation menu but chose to have the 3 course. The portions were not huge but by the end no-one wanted anymore. Good selection of wines at a reasonable price.

Stayed at Holbeck Ghyll last week, everything from the service, to the room, to the food, was absolutely superb. Thanks to all the staff for making my wife's birthday a very special time. Can't recommend the hotel and restaurant enough.
