Utterly excellent. My wife and I dined from the Sunday lunch menu. Absolutely impeccable as it always is. First rate service, first rate cooking. Nowhere does it better. Delicious salmon to start, fabulous pork belly and a delicious raspberry and cinder toffee inspired dessert.

We had dinner twice here and the food was very well cooked and the portions were large. With a limited menu, it wasn't worth going back for a third time as there was nothing that we fancied.

We ate here as part of our overnight stay. You could not use the bar, therefore drinks were served at the table. We had reserved a table a week before we stayed. The staff were very attentive, the food fabulous. The quantity and quanlity could...not be faulted. Although in strange times, the staff did their utmost to ensure you were not forgotten, the tables were slightly further apart than we guessed were the norm. The staff were engaging and had good knowledge of the menu and ingredients.More

Amazing Food & Relaxing Atmosphere. A beautiful setting overlooking the picturesque gardens. Food was wonderful, some of the best gravy i’ve ever had. Sticky toffee pudding is to die for :) Thanks Nicky, Tony & all for a lovely dinner

Our first visit this year. Despite the restrictions we have tried to patronise as many of our favourite restaurants and we are glad we came here. We like eating early and were the only ones in, did this spoil the ambience, certainly not. We were...entertained by mine host and found a lot of common ground. It was like being amongst friends. On to the food, we both had the pork/ham press which was simple but delicious. For mains it was braised beef in a succulent gravy and fishcake which was packed with fish (not potato), a portion of twice cooked chips worked perfectly. Sweet cream cheese and raspberry and a selection of ice creams finished it off perfectly. If money is your motivation then this was very reasonable, but for us it is all about the ambience and despite it being quiet the staff/host made up for it in the personal service. it was our 44th wedding anniversary and we thank the staff for making it a lovely accasion for us both.More

This was my first time here. The layout is excellent, very spacious dining area, good social distancing in operation and the staff were excellent, friendly, and very attentive. We chose our menu (it was a somewhat limited menu, possibly due to current Covid-19 situation) before...arriving at the venue and each course was served quickly. Pricing is very reasonable and the food quality was very good. My starter was smoked Salmon which was delicious and my main was sirloin steak. Here I have to make my only criticism. I’m not a fan of Sirloin. It was cooked well and nice and pink but chewy and, for an establishment like this, I’d expect options for Rib eye or fillet. I would much prefer either of these than sirloin, however, that said, as sirloin steaks go it was cooked well and tasty enough, just a hard chew! My desert was blue cheese and crackers, and cheese was rather small, but very good. Everyone in our party fully enjoyed their meal though. I would definitely recommend it and would go again.More

Just returned from a 3 night stay. Eslington Villa is not your spanking brand new chain hotel but a old Victorian building with loads of character. The interior has had a make over and is very warm and welcoming. Our room was large and clean...located near the front of the car park, however we where not disturbed by any traffic noise, in fact the area is very quite. The staff where very friendly and hopeful. We would like to mention the young lady who looked after us during the breakfast, what a Great job she does Thanks! Also the manager who kindly arranged for hot drinks to be brought to our room and providing me with a map too the local restaurants. We had a evening meal in the hotel and was very impressed with the dinner and service, well worth a visit. There is a large well kept garden. Sadly the lounge was shut pity as it looked a great place to sit and have a drink. The hotel location is near the A1 and a short walk to the high street where these is a good selection of bars and restaurants. we used this as a base to explore the local area and it was an ideal base. I would return if in the area. Please support a great British hotel! thanks allMore

We visited for lunch and were glad we did. The blue cheese pannacotta starter was delicious as was the local smoked salmon. The steaks too were just right. The welcome and service was ,as usual ,very friendly and helpful especially for the 96 year old...member of our party. All the Covid rules were carefully followed and we felt safe but it will be great to get back to beautifully laid tables and using the lounge. We were also pleased to find that although we were in September we were given a £5 reduction .More

Outstanding stuff again from the team at Eslington. Service of an incredibly high standard and cooking to match. We dined on the eat out to help out scheme. What a bargain. We also enjoyed half price wine as it was a Tuesday night. My terrine...was delicious and my main, fish cake, was superb. Served with a delicious poached egg and with an added side of sautéed potatoes it was simply stunning. I went for the sticky toffee pud to finish. Always excellent. I dined with two friends who were both equally impressed. It shan’t be long ‘til we return.More
