Staying for 3 nights on a £20 offer for 3 courses. (normally £25) I really do not know where to start. The service from staff is not up to fine dining standard. The menu never changed the whole 3 nights. The serving plates are bizarre. The portions are bizarre. The presentation is very poor. The food is poorly cooked with... More

All the food we had here was of good quality and served by friendly staff. A shame that the log fire in the resaurant wasn't alight, it would have been very cheery on a cold winter's night, the coldness of the restaurant didn't make for a lingering dinner!

We popped in for a quick snack and was pleasantly suprised. Really friendly and helpful staff and quick turn around. Nothing was too much trouble and food was yummy, wish we had booked for dinner. The staff here work so hard to make things go smoothly, I hope their boss appreciates their hard work. Thank you.

We enjoyed our food in the restaurant whilst staying at this hotel and would recommend it to others. On a busy evening the service was a little slow but if you are not in a hurry it was fine !

Saw reviews but as the bad ones were over a year ago I thought I would give it a try as we have the tastecard so would get a 2 for 1 deal for Sunday Lunch. The dining room itself was nice and gave the impression of a nice restaurant but that's where the resemblance ended. We ordered a chicken... More

My husband and I went for a meal on May 29th for our wedding anniversary and were both so impressed. The atmosphere was lovely and the staff were an absolute delight, so friendly and attentive.

We went to the Square restaurant whilst on holiday in Bakewell last Wednesday. Having seen the food described as "Fine Dining" we were expecting something special. It got off to a bad start when the wine arrived, this was just dropped on the table - nothing said and the top not loosened let alone removed, none was poured by the... More
