We had a cream tea as part of a spa day, but it was only one scone, jam and cream (no butter, no sandwiches etc). Seemed a bit stingy to us. However, the staff were warm and friendly and we were able to to order other items from the menu at an extra charge.

Good place. Unfortunately the food was too slow. We had to wait for 20 mins before the first dish came.

Overpriced and uncooked. When asked for a voucher to redeem meal they had run out...what does that say. They then offered an evening meal and sent voucher for a lunch. Hmmm!

We have eaten here a few times and this wasn't as good as the other times. We couldn't fault the food, but the service and little things were lacking. I acknowledge that they were busy and told us that they had a large party arriving, but this isn't an excuse for bad service and most of it happened before the... More

We ate here after we went swimming in the gym were really hungry. The food is fantastic, I would especially recommend the pizzas. Service is good and it has a nice atmosphere

I am pleased to say how much we enjoyed dining here, once again. I don't know why we tried to dine elsewhere, we have two more booking at this hotel and dining at Zest will be a must, on both visits. Why go elsewhere when I cannot fault the food or service here. I had a Smoked Salmon starter and... More

Some of the best food I've had in a hotel restaurant in a while. We've had breakfast lunch and dinner here over 2 days so sampled much of the menu. The food was really good. Some people have mentioned the restaurant is noisy. Unless you are accustomed to eating in a dark room with no windows I would describe the... More

Waited ten minutes at the bar for drinks despite 5 staff members chatting nearby and consciously ignoring us and after the waitress serving our food had also ignored us for over half an hour meaning we had to leave the table to get fresh drinks in the first place. Danny and Lace very polite and apologetic for the inconvenience but... More

The Zest restaurant is relaxed and fairly informal sharing the same area as the Zest bar. The staff in here are courteous and polite and nothing is too much trouble. You can eat either in the restaurant section or in the bar area, I can recommend the sea bass which was a special and the Caesar Salad, but I honestly... More
