This restaurant is very confused, they're not quite sure what they are. Are they fine dining, manor house dining or french brasserie with a twist.
The food is very good, its simple, well cooked, nice combination of flavours and well presented. The service on the other hand! Not quite sure what theyre aiming at here, its a bit all over the place. I was expecting a bit of formality to be honest, you know the story, country manor house, 2 rosettes, dress up for dinner etc etc. What we got was mid range fawlty towers trying to be Maxims, they got it all wrong. The staff are pleasant enough.
The atmosphere is dire, bright lights, no music, all you hear is clinking of knives and forks from other diners. You can also hear the other conversations if you're of that mind. We were pretty concious that we could be overheard so we spoke just above a whisper throughout the whole meal, not the most pleasant way to spend dinner!
All in all the food saved it, but they really need to decide what they're trying to achieve ambience wise. This is what lets it down. The room is beautiful and hanbury manor, whilst a bit tired also has a lot of character.
