In the area for a few days for a work engagement and wanted to eat out. What seemed noticeable was just how few good restaurants there were within 10 miles or so. This stood-out on Tripadvisor and so had to be visited. And it was worth it! From walking through the front door and being welcomed by a wonderful fire... More

My brother was engaged on the triathlon and we wanted a quick lunch whilst he was running around! The staff were very helpful and we were able to have some starters and main courses outside on the front veranda. The trout was excellent. I think we will return and try the restaurant area which looked very inviting, another day!

We have recently had a large family lunch and a buffet lunch for over 50 people at The Blenheim, as well as other meals. Helga and Philip are always happy to go out of their way to make any occasion a success. The menu choices, food and service are consistently good. Many thanks.
