This restaurant lost it's Michelin star but not because of the food which is excellent. I'm not sure if there is not enough staff or it's just that they are poorly trained. The Sommelier seems to hate his job and is loath to perform it...More

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.

We booked months in advance to have a champagne afternoon tea as a honeymoon treat. Perhaps because of the anticipation (and because we'd dined at the excellent Samling the night before, we came away feeling a little underwhelmed. We were served the tea in a...More
