We stayed in the Hodson Bay for a girlie weekend. The room was great: spacious, clean and warm. The breakfast was delicious and had plenty to offer but the evening food in the bar was disappointing. I opted for a veggie stir-fry which wasn't great at all but it was the only vegetarian option that agreed with me. Dessert was lovely as were the house cocktails we were gifted with. Despite the disappointing bar food I'd definitely go back.

We stayed here for a short stay with the children, the food in the kids club was perfect for them and they ate well every day. We ate in the bar mostly and the food there was tasty wholesome and well presented. The food in the restaurant, while more upmarket was beautiful, the details in the presentation and the flavours we definietly 5 stars. Value was best in the bar, good big plates of food for your money. The staff couldnt of been more helpful, all of them with a smile and happy to help.

I went to the Hodson Bay for Sunday lunch last week to catch up with some old school friends. As usual I was the first one there. But this was not a problem as the staff were very kind and pleasant, immediately seating me, asking if I wanted a drink and offering me the menu to peruse while I waited. The restaurant was empty except for us and one other couple. We ordered from the set Sunday lunch menu which had plenty of choices for meat-eaters and vegetarians alike. I had the ceasar salad to start, followed by the beef with a medley of desert and tea to round of the meal. It was a really enjoyable experience, the food, service and restaurant was great. My friends and I will certainly be back.

Visited here on a Saturday afternoon for a relaxed lunch with a big group. The atmosphere was great - very relaxed and cosy. They were showing the rugby match and a football match, but it wasn't the entire focus of the restaurant. The food was nice. Not fantastic... I am a vegan but eat fish, but there was a lot of cheese on various dishes so there wasn't really an option for me as a main course. The service was fine, nothing special, but not bad either! The location is lovely. I'd definitely go back to the Hodson Bay Hotel due to the relaxed atmosphere.

Sunday lunch, no trays at the carvery, no staff to ask for one. The restaurant/conservatory was packed but but nobody clearing tables or wiping down as people left (I had to clear a table to the window sill and attempt to wipe down the table with a napkin and when we left the dishes were still there). The food selection to be fair was good and the sauce on the salmon nice but the veg were tired and mushy, couldn't get served at the bar either. Such a shame because the location is so beautiful and it wouldn't take much to vastly improve it but I won't be back in a rush.

I was here for a private function so the meal was from a set menu. However, we had no complaints, the caesar salad was worthy of note especially. The setting of the hotel is really special and adds to the atmosphere if drinking in the conservatory area. I can't comment on the value of the meal, only on the over all cost of staying, which was average. We found all the staff to be very pleasent during our stay, and I would definetly visit again.

The usual overpriced, overcooked, under-staffed Sunday lunch fiasco. Would have expected much better. Will not be returning. Food was bland, mushy and overcooked. Service was hopeless, it was impossible to get someone to the table and when you did they didn't seem to care. For such a lovely location it would be nice if they could step it up. They'd make a killing if they could provide proper food with friendly service. Would have liked a more varied childrens menu too.

Visited the restaurant on Sunday Afternoon with two small kids on Fathers Day, yes it was busy but no excuse for the bad food and bad service. First had to wait for 15 mins for a high chair for our baby then starters arrived the fish cake was horrible with big lumps of fish in it. Hubby's chicken & mush bouchee was ok but not much in it. Both were small. Then mains were adequate (turkey & ham & Lamb) but barely veg was horrible soggy and over cooked all in all meal not restaurant quality. Ordered a childs portion of the roast of the day for our little girl and it was tiny and with no VEG AT ALL our baby got more potato in her baby bowl. (her main came with our starters so they must not give kids veg great example to set) Service was not great I know they were under pressure as many large parties in but still...... Overall disgusted will not return to restaurant we should have just queued for the carvery.
