we booked a table for a family Sunday lunch as a treat for my husbands 60th birthday. The ambience is amazing, the service was a little missing given that they include a 12.5% service charge. The food and wine was overpriced and the Sunday roast beef had to be returned as it was cold! I must say I was so very disappointed. A regular pub Sunday lunch would have been a third of the price but a similar quality. I would be ashamed to have my name fronting a restaurant with such poor food.

Myself and my good lady booked ourselves in to the Andre Garrett restaurant having taken a stroll around the lovely Cliveden House grounds (which are truly beautiful). The house itself is beautiful and set in picturesque surroundings. We arrived for our meal and elected to go for the tasting menu with wine pairing. The food was well prepared and cooked to perfection the tasting menu taking us through excellent tastes and textures, the sommelier was a delightful chap who clearly knew his wine and provided excellent conversation and entertainment, the service was also top notch. A delightful experience! We will be back

We spent a night at Cliveden to celebrate a significant birthday. We had a lovely time but it is extraordinarily expensive. Firstly, the room - there are often packages available that include an allowance towards dinner in the second restaurant, the Astor grill. These aren't bad value but the basic club room is small and has a standard double bed. If you are midweek / out of season you will likely receive an "upgrade" offer, offering an upgrade to a higher class of room at a discounted price. We did this and felt the extra £70 or so was worth it. The room we ended up in was lovely, overlooking the courtyard with a large, comfortable bed. We opted to eat in the main restaurant rather than the Astor grill and had the tasting menu which was very good indeed. Portions were generous (except perhaps for the solitary oyster) but the wine prices were avaricious even by high end hotel standards. The standard mark up seemed to be around 400%, except for the house champagne, which is Tattinger and a comparative bargain at £70 a bottle, or £17 a glass. Other than that there are no bargains on the list, except perhaps the La Petite Revolution wine, particularly the Visionnaire at around £350, which isn't too bad for such a rare wine. As someone who likes his wine, the wine prices spoiled the meal a bit as we ended up drinking something fine rather than good. The restaurant was busy when we ate there, with lots of children present (maybe as it was half term). We liked this - it gave it a relaxed atmosphere and informality unusual for cooking of this high standard. Staff were pleasant but the service at times very slow - the tasting menu took us over three hours. The spa was nice with an indoor and outdoor pool and a good, if small, gym. We had morning tea delivered to the room - £13.50 - there are no tea / coffee making facilities in the room. I would have thought a nespresso machine and a kettle would be standard at this price point, or a shared kitchen where guests could make drinks. Breakfast was good with a mixture of buffet and cooked to order. Filter coffee was also good. Overall a very pleasant experience but at approximately £900 for dinner, bed and breakfast not one we will be repeating any time soon. It

A lovely, luxurious, decadent venue. The building, grounds and spa are all lovely. Room We had a standard club room. Decent size, large lovely bathroom. Bed was very comfortable and garden views. Restaurant We booked the Andre Garret on the first night they decided to introduce a tasting menu from the 1950s where women only eat fish and men are men and eat meat. I kid you not. They changed the traditional tasting menu that you all have the same and gendered it. This was not made clear at all and we only realised what had happened when my husband was served a different wine. Neither of us wanted the meat version and it was like a negotiation to get it changed. But the restaurant is so old school - women sit in the pink seats, men in the blue. The service was very slow and it was obviously understaffed that night. No runners so table took ages to be cleared. Staff are polite and friendly - but we have had better elsewhere. I wouldn’t come to the hotel for the restaurant. Spa The facilities are lovely. Being mid winter in the outdoor jacuzzi is lovely and the indoor pool also great. We both had wonderful treatments - but beware they add a further charge on weekends. At no point did i see a note of this or was told - it has since been refunded. Charges A service charge is added for everything, so no tipping is necessary. A bit of a gripe was having the friendly offer of tea brought to room in morning. I must admit, I thought this was a lovely gesture - especially as no kettles or tea making facilities in the room. But, it came at a charge of nearly £20. So beware! All in all we had a lovely stay. It was a real treat to celebrate a romantic milestone. Would I go back? No - think there are other just has good country houses in England.

This was a surprise trip to celebrate my wife's milestone birthday - what a memorable experience! It started with an unexpected upgrade to a fabulous room in the main house, continued with a superb dinner in the restaurant and ended with breakfast looking out over the extraordinary view of the parterre to the Thames beyond. Not to mention an evening swim in the notorious Profumo outdoor pool with the gilded clocktower glowing in the dark above! The staff were fantastic, adding personal touches in a warm, friendly way to make us feel completely at home.
