Fantastic Sunday lunch . The beef is to die for , so tender and 2 thick herbed slices , perfectly cooked .
Been several times and tried lots of other restaurants too.Poets is by far the best , worth the money .

Dear Christine

Thank you so much for your lovely review of your Sunday Lunch at Poets House Hotel! The chef will be pleased to hear your comments - he takes great pride in offering the best quality beef sourced from Yallops the Butchers. The beef is cooked overnight on a very low heat, ensuring the beef is extremely tender, retaining all the natural flavours, combined with hand-picked seasoning too!

Thank you again for your comments and we look forward to welcoming you again soon!

Kindest regards
The Poets House Team

Had a lovely evening here a couple of weeks back to celebrate my birthday. Was busy as there was a wedding reception there but plenty of space and the staff were very attentive, friendly and very welcoming. Food was great, good service and great value. Will try to be back soon!

When taking friends out to the highly regarded afternoon tea (which should be ordered well in advance of the day) you will feel that touch of luxury that could be a rival to 'Brown's', the internationally famous London Tea House

I was staying at Poets House Hotel and decided to just dine with them as well. I'm glad I did. The restaurant is open to the public, so even if you aren't staying there, book a dinner it will be worth it. The staff was attentive, the atmosphere relaxing, and the food was superb. I really enjoyed the pork main course and their take on a goat cheese salad and the carrot cake were both tasty and unique. Certainly a place to celebrate a special event and the bar area was relaxing and the bartenders genuinely friendly. (And I really enjoyed the full English Breakfast the following morning.) Well Done Team Poets House!

Hotel restaurants are not always that good, Poets House is an exception. Good menu and wine list, attentive staff and fabulous food.
