Really lovely atmosphere, friendly, attentive and efficient staff. Food very tasty, well presented and a really good plate full. Love it at the Craythorne. Already planning a return trip. Thanks

My family and I have been to Craythornes for lunch about 2 years ago for a birthday and sadly were rather disappointed, but after our last experience we will certainly be coming back again! Brilliant service and superb food! 10 out of 5 should be an option!

I took my Mum out for breakfast and we were warmly welcomed, not only did we have a table reserved next to the fire, but the woman serving us was so friendly and helpful.
Our coffees were delicious and our breakfast was also rave worthy. My mum had eggs and bacon on toast, and she thoroughly enjoyed it and I had the eggs benedict with smoked salmon, highly recommended! We will be back!

Fantastic food and service. I hadn't been to Craythorne's for about 2 years and I won't be waiting that long again.
The meals were enough for the biggest eater and like another restaurant claims "to much ain't enough". Keep up the great work Craythorne's especially those lamb shanks.

Overall a good experience and I would happily recommend Craythorne's Hotel. The menu had an excellent range of foods with cheaper options as well as more expensive items. We ordered from the more expensive range, having the lamb rump (which was delicious) and the fish of the day (monkfish) which was also very good although perhaps very slightly undercooked. I requested no capers in the sauce and that was not a problem. The reason for 4 stars is that the food took a very long time to arrive, even when the restaurant was not too busy. This is not a problem if you have plenty of time. Overall a lovely meal and excellent table service.

This was our first experience with first table and we decided on dining at Craythornes. We had a table beside the fire and we had 3 courses and everyone of them was thoroughly enjoyable. The service was also excellent. Would definitely recommend to other future diners to try Craythornes. With excellent food and service it made a special night for my husband's birthday.

The staff were very friendly and service was awesome. The wait for our meal was minimal and we enjoyed every bit of every meal. The burgers were just the right size and the meat fit the bun perfectly. The pizzas were flavoursome and the base was thin and crispy. The lambs fry, bacon and mash portion was very generous and delicious .

We regularly go to Craythornes for dinner as it's an easy restaurant for the kids to dine in, but last night our meals were less than average. Our steaks were burnt, I asked for GF but my steak still had a random beer battered fry underneath it which means my meal was cross contamination. My son ordered the kids cheese burger but the pattie inside was this tiny meatball.
Service as always was on point, but the food was not great.

Really disappointed.. My roast of the day was luke warm. Poor amount of vegetables and if the normal cost of this it is not value for money. They offered to warm up my meal but that would have been done in a microwave which I do not like. My husband's meal was also luke warm but he said it was okay. We won't be back.

Welcome and surroundings were ok, however with only a handful of diners we waited a very long time for our meals.
The roast was tasteless and the supposedly roast vegetables consisted mainly of huge boiled carrots half raw. We won’t be back.
