There was a coffee machine and a complimentary decantor of sherry. The restaurant is amazing. French cuisine at its finest, even compared to France. Do... More

We highly recommend both the restaurant and accommodation. The food is beautifully presented, excellent flavours and has a twist to the menu, variation in the products used. Attention to detail within the rooms, service and food is second to none and very atmospheric. The wine list is incredible too, spoilt for choice. We would like to wish the business every... More

The fine dining experience has to be tried to be believed. The French staff are extremely attentive. The wine list is very extensive, nothing is too much trouble. Everything on the menu... More

We visited as a large group and the service was great- very attentive staff. We ordered a selection of meals. I wasn't keen on my starter (foie gras) despite the fact that I eat this regularly and normally love it! All of the accompaniments were extremely sweet and it ended up tasting bland. Other starters were good. Mains including lamb,... More

We have been to The Great House on various occasions for more than 20 years with the last time being yesterday evening for a family meal. The quality of service, ambience and food has never failed to impress.

This delightful restaurant is somewhere we regard as special and on this occasion we had with us a lovely voucher which had been given to us for our joint 140th birthday. We go 2 or 3 times a year and it was with a frisson of excitement that we entered the beautiful old building and with great anticipation joined the... More

We were told to expect excellence and were not disappointed. Attentive but not overwhelming service from friendly staff but the food was to die for! Not expensive either!
