Booked for the children (late teens) to take their Dad out as a special birthday treat. They all got dolled up (not a jeans and t-shirt kind of place) and headed for our once frequent haunt. The ambience, food and service was excellent. Dad was very chuffed and felt uber special at this grade 2 listed venue. Food well cooked... More

Well, with a name like the Chateau I should have expected this. A very oldy whirly property. They had several dining rooms - which if you can imagine were separate rooms when this property was a family home. The decor is authentic, and to be honest so is the service. You are well looked after. The dining room that we... More

We were the first through the door just before 7 one mid week evening and they weren't quite ready for customers. That said, we were made welcome and we sat in the lounge bar until our table was ready. Fab food, tender, tasty well cooked steaks. We enjoyed the meal even though we were almost alone in the restaurant. Will... More

We attended the venue with friends on Valentine's night. Very enjoyable experience with good food. The service was superb with staff really attentive. A little pricey but worth it for a special occasion

A special thank you to the Chef for a presentation of food that was worthy of a 5 star hotel. I can recommend the roast beef. It was to die for. Also special thanks to Jose... More

I recently held a surprise 50th birthday celebration and had a private room hired. I cannot recommend this venue enough. From when we first visited and booked, the staff were very helpful and friendly. All of our questions were answered and were very helpful when we phoned up with more questions. On the night - the room was set up... More

In the last ten months we have had two family celebration lunches at The Chateau for over 40 people each time. The food and the service were both excellent - really cannot be faulted. We had the buffet each time and were pleased with the quality and presentation. The management here really care about their customers, and this shows.

Thank Jacky D
