Absolutely amazing service and great quality food! One of the best meals we've ever had! They say three courses but actually they serve more like six!

The Oval restaurant was a lovely place for a special dinner. The room manages to be opulent and intimate, and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. The food is exceptional, and very good value. Highly recommended.

We had a really delightful evening. The food, service and ambience was perfect from beginning to the end. My wife said that the evening had been perfect and I
would agree with that comment.

The restaurant was lovely and the staff were very welcoming. they rang ahead of the booking and asked if there was a special occasion (it was our anniversary) and towards the end of the meal, they presented a wonderfully presented dessert for our celebration. The food was excellent and service was great - informal but attentive.

Absolutely first class stuff - great example of fine dining. Beautiful surroundings, polite, attentive staff, well prepared delicious dishes.
Top marks for ambiance, finish & presentation - possibly the best we've ever seen.
Superb location. Highly recommended

Wow, the experience began the minute we walked towards the entrance, the doorman was delightful and chatty, once inside the Hotel you couldn't but love the decor or not be more delighted with warm welcome of the staff. We relaxed in the bar with a pre dinner drink , where the staff again were wonderful and produced a mean martini. The meal itself was exceptional, the bass in squid ink being the finest fish dish I have ever tasted. The cheese plate was another highlight and again the staff were wonderful.
In summary a beautiful building, exceptional food with wonderful staff. Highly recommended.

We were early for our meal, so we were invited into a tidy but beutiful decorated side bar for cocktails, the cocktails were tastefully presented and delicious, accompanied with olives and nuts, at our booking time we made our way to 'The Oval restaurant' beutifully decorated, and cozy, the food was average for the deal at £35.00 per person, the personality and politeness of all who were employed was exemplory, however we were the only two diners in the restaurant all night which made it cold and univiting, and combined with an extensive expensive wine list. The total bill £195.00 which worked out at £125.00 for two cocktails and a bottle of wine plus service charge. The wine was not the cheapest but a long way from the dearest. Altogether a very dissappointing evening for a celerbratory occassion.
