Dinner at Pontlands Park was extremely good, well presented and with great service. Particularly well looked after by Julian. Have not eaten here for some time but certainly a place we will soon return to.

Pontlands Park doesn't disappoint, couldn't have asked for a nicer place to enjoy afternoon tea. A lovely hotel in beautiful surroundings , very friendly and pleasant staff. Our waitresses and hotel receptionist Jo were welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. Highly recommend this charming place.

But everyone went above and beyond to find out what... More
