We live locally so didn't stay here but took visiting friends here for a meal. They are London foodies so we wanted to impress - and the Falcondale didn't fail us. The restaurant was not busy for a Saturday night but people here tend not to eat in hotels. The bar man was very helpful, giving a taster of a... More

We booked a meal for the evening of Mothers Day as a treat. We should have picked up the warning when the menu was being reprinted on our arrival. To be fair the front of house staff were lovely and helpful but the meal itself was a let down. Amongst the starters was Crispy pigs head with black pudding. I... More

To start we do not understand how printing a menu should be a warning. Our menus are adapted daily and consequently are printed daily, ensuring that all items are freshly prepared. The crispy pigs head is a slow cooked pigs head where the meat is then shredded and breaded. So, you are right that what you received was pulled pork... More

We have frequented the Falcondale for Sunday lunch for quite a few years and believed it to be the best in the area for the meal and ambience. It was always busy and our teenage daughters loved the 'sweet table'. When we went a couple of weeks ago we were disappointed in the menu and struggled to choose a starter... More

We called for lunch yesterday (Thursday) and were looked after well. We ordered from the daily lunch menu of parsnip and honey soup which was very nice. Our mains consisted of belly pork and another dish of the day brill with curried lentils. Whilst the pork and fish were beautifully cooked the curried lentils were so overpowering that the delicate... More

It says a lot that the excellent chef was readily willing to adjust his normally complex creations to accommodate my wife's request for absolutely plain food free of any sauces or dressing. My own food was of such a high quality that it would have been foolish to eat elsewhere......and the accompanying fine wines added to the overall experience.

As guests of the hotel, we decided to stay in and try the restaurant. My husband read that the restaurant had received 2AA rosettes-matching a couple of our local restaurants. Therefore, we expected slightly higher prices but excellent cuisine. The restaurant itself, is set off the main reception within the hotel and offers diners a charming environment that overlooks a...
