Superb from start to finish. All of our food was exquisite. Beautifully presented and delicious. The service was excellent including the emails confirming our booking and requests. Just over £100 for three courses drinks and liqueurs. Worth every penny.

We dined in the Brassiere twice during our stay. The menu is small and rather pricey, but every single dish and dessert we have ordered was done to perfection, leaving nothing nothing to desire and us wanting more.

Overly fussy menu. certainly not fine dining, very average and expensive for what it is. Staff were pleasant. couldn't find any staff to get a drink at the bar later. We would not return

Thanks for your question - the hotel opens from 6am and breakfast is served 7:30 - 9:30am (8:00 - 10:00am Sunday) and we are more than happy to offer continental breakfast before this time on request.
