I had booked a special lunch for four a few weeks before the planned meal. I received an email reminding me of the booking a few days before but then on the morning I received a telephone call to say that they could no longer accommodate us. They did offer us a place at the golf club No 19 where... More

My wife and I were taken to this restaurant by our best friends for my 75th birthday. Reception was fine , but the lounge was extremely cold and we had to sit in the bar area for pre dinner drinks, this was just ok. We then went into the main dining room which again was cold and when we complained... More

The surroundings etc., are faultless but we had afternoon tea and at a price of £18.50 per person it was well overpriced. If we go back it will be for a lunch which seems much better value.

We went their for lunch. The restaurant was empty and very quiet. The staff members were talking very loud and said very unpleasant comments in French... unfortunately, we are French too...and that spoiled our moment! Foodwise, the mains were great and the dessert (rice pudding for me) was one of the best I have ever had! Overall, the place is... More

The lunch has, on each occassion been meticulously prepared and presented and (unlike so many places these days) perfectly seasoned. As others have mentioned, the lunch offer... More

Once again a lovely lunch in the Argent D'or restaurant. Beautiful dining room decorated in cream grey and gold. At 2.00pm groups of people coming in for afternoon tea which looked delicious. Great value for lovely food. Sumptuous lounge for pre lunch drinks and after lunch coffee. Fire lit. Good access for wheelchairs.
