    I went as group of 5. The dinner menu was about to be changed for summer so the only choice was from the set menu. The waiting staff were attentive and the food was very tasty. I plan to return to try the new menu. "

    Having read the review by Peter I did wonder if I had done the right thing by booking a table for 4 people.

    However we were all delighted with the experience and would most certainly go back again.

    Lovely old building with lots of character. The restaurant area is sectioned off from the main dining room which is more cosy and although lots of other people dining there you could still have a conversation without shouting.

    For starter two people had the home made butternut squash & carrot soup, which was delicious. We all chose the Moroccan Lamb & Apricot Tagine as a main meal and so glad as that was amazing.

    For dessert I had the sticky toffee pudding with butterscotch sauce which I highly recommend and we also had the blueberry cheesecake which was also delicious.

    We had a bottle of wine and our meal came to £75, less than £20 per person. Absolute bargain.

    I forgot to mention our waiter Youri, who was delightful and very attentive. Thank you. "

    This is the worst UK dining experience I have ever had!

    When the booking was made two weeks prior to the Birthday celebration meal for 6 persons, I had to take a later time as it was so fully booked. On the evening, I received a call offering me an earlier slot as there had been "several cancellations"! In reality, there was a wedding reception going on simultaneously, so hardly any guests were eating in the restaurant. When we arrived, no one greeted us or showed us to the table. I had to search for a member of staff!!

    We were taken through a large 'canteen' style dining hall and seated in a sectioned off corner which was termed the 'restaurant'. Food was average and expensive without the tastecard. 1 member of waiting staff only.

    During the meal, noisy trolleys were pushed up and down to set out the morning crockery and cutlery etc!! This is not a proper 'dining' experience. No one to advise you, no atmosphere and clearly just a conference / wedding venue. The wedding reception intruded on our experience. If you want to eat at a 'restaurant' for the same price, try the Cloisters at Nutfield Priory or the Dining Room in Reigate. "
