evening service was very good and friendly. breakfast staff seemed reluctant to take away dirty plates. Food was good choice and very tasty and as you would expect at a spa, focus was on healthy eating but a lot more than a lettuce leaf

The food her is wonderful, for each meal you have. Evening meals have plenty of choices and the quality is superb. Breakfast is wonderful and has so much to offer. Only problem is it gets really busy and a bit noisy

The service was very efficient so ask for a break between courses if you don't want to be in and out in an hour. I had three courses and they were all lovely. The portions are just right so you don't feel bloated.

Well presented and very tasty. They could have more of a selection. I cannot eat fish and don't do salad when away on breaks/hols! There were two fish dishes, two salad, one Lamb - which was way over my budget at 19.95 and then chicken.

Food portions are what you would expect at a health spa! Still - very good quality and beautifully cooked. Staff friendly, helpful and efficient. Quite expensive - but it is a hotel....sorry, SPA.

I am not sure. I was there on a business trip. I recalled that the menu was limited.
