The staff we’re friendly but not to the point of spoiling the experience by continually asking if everything is ok like some restaurants. The food was very good, Pork and Seafood linguine were both very tasty.
The food was good. Not very hot though. I found the decor to be out of line with the Jacobean Hotel. Too modern. It was very noisy. The staff were very good at service but they were all wearing jeans?? Found this a bit strange as we were in a 16th century hotel. Maybe this is the way forward but not for me
Quick service, lovely ambiance , food tasty and plentiful, lovely afternoon
Would definitely recommend a visit, but confirm any offer if booking the hotel and ask to be seated away from the bar area
Beautifully cooked food although a little on the expensive side. Worth it though as a special occasion.
The serving staff were v pleasant & attentive but a little on the slow side considering the restaurant was relatively quiet.
All in all though a very pleasant experience. Thank you x
If you are staying at the hotel, then the restaurant is convenient. The service was excellent. We both chose the pasta, which perhaps was a mistake - a lot of pasta and not a lot of sauce. Desserts were good.
Service was rushed, as if they wanted you out, hubby still chewing food and they took his plate & napkin away. Pre paid for dinner back in Febuary, but was still charged for it, when questioned , they took it off the bill, but put an optional service charge on of 4.75 !!! Needless to say we asked them to take it off, we tip what we want not what is expected.
Absolutely lovely afternoon tea, would highly recommend.
it was amazing afternoon tea the best ive had so nice unusual, really lovely. staff were kidna nd attentive. loved it and so cheap x
Pleasant surroundings and good food and wine. Good and friendly service
Very nice meal staff couldn't do enough very nice place
Had the sunday lunch. Onion soup was a bowl of cream and the 3 of us had the roast. Rock hard roast potatoes a bit of veg and 2 slices of meat - £17.50. Appalling value
The restaurant was clean and tidy, as it always is, and we were seated in a nice booth.
The menu has changed since our last visit and is now printed on a large card, more like a chain restaurant.
Our order was taken fairly quickly, but we did have to say 'could we also order some drinks?'.
About 15 minutes after our order was placed, we were informed that there was no smoked salmon left, as a large party had used it all, so we had to choose another starter. Everything seemed to take a long time to be delivered.
When it came to the dessert, we both ordered the treacle tart. After 15-20 minutes, we were informed that 'the kitchen had looked everywhere, but couldn't find any!
When I paid the bill, I said that we hadn't had a particularly good experience and that it was disappointing, particularly as it was my Dad's birthday (which I had mentioned on the phone the previous day to Gleb, although no-one said anything on the day). The person apologised and offered me a free glass if prosecco, which I refused as I had already had a glass of wine and was driving. We also needed to be elsewhere by this time.
All in all, not what you would expect of a restaurant of this standard of hotel. If the kitchen cannot cope with large parties as well as the normal service, then this really needs to be addressed.
I’m sorry to say we didn’t enjoy our meal.
My husband had soup when he he said was ok, I had prawns in tempura batter the batter was soggy on the bottom and very bland.
Mains we both had fish and chips... I wouldn’t call the giant fried wedges of potato’s chips! The fish was well cooked but the fish, “chips” and mushy peas all very bland no seasoning on anything.
All food is freshly prepared and of a high standard. One can enjoy a top class meal in leisure, staff are attentive but not intrusive.
Two guests couldn't eat beef and ale pies as pastry too hard to pierce with fork, so added gravy supplied which was very salty so left meals as couldn't eat them
Told staff who deducted one, not two, from bill which was still almost £100 including coffes and soft drinks
Poor value for money
Manager told chef who sent apologies but was too busy to come out personally. Restaurant wasn't that busy
Disappointing reunion of friends who hadn't met up for a while
A great meal from the grill menu looking forward to trying the new dinner menu we have been told starts mid April great staff and very good atmosphere
The restaurant has been divided into two separate dining areas. It is now cluttered with the table being to close together and noisy. Most of the original waiters and waitresses have either left or been moved on. On Sunday the main main course was no longer available at 2pm and several other diners left without ordering. This was our favourite restaurant but not any more we will be going elsewhere.
Dear Guest We are sorry that you feel the changes are not for the better, however the restaurant is under going a number of changes, there will be both a grill room menu, and a evening dinner menu. The new dinner menu will be served Tuesday to Saturday. This will be launched in April and we have appointed a incredible talented chef, we will be shortly officially launching this across our media network. Once again sorry for you experience during this period of transition
Has to be the worst meal I have ever had in a restaurant.
Dear Guest I am sorry you feel you had a bad experience, currently we are undergoing change to launch a new concept, sine you meal we have already launched our grill menu with great feedback and in April we will launch our dinner menu which will be produced by Marcus Fisk a well known local chef formally of Norse in Harrogate. We are confident the changes are positive and hope you feel you can come back and judge for yourself.
Food very enjoyable, although ham hock croquettes could do with a bit more taste. Unfortunately, we were sat in the side that's been screened off and were with parties having afternoon tea. It was very noisy. The staff were all very attentive though and helpful.
Great food and helpful friendly staff. My wife and I are regular diners for either lunch or dinner and always get a warm welcome
Suggest early evening, say before 7pm, quick meal price. We were in a rush when we went.
Excellent food quality. Service slow and lack of attention
My wife and I usually visit the restaurant at least once a week. The staff are friendly and helpful and the food is of a high standard. Highly recommended.
The service was great but the food was very average. I'm sure that I would have been served the same fish and chips main course in the Stables pub on site for less than half the price of Convive.
Service was lovely, staff incredibly helpful and friendly, only bettered by the scrummy food. The lobster pasta was melt in the mouth :-)
Had afternoon tea very nice variety of foods candy floss too! It was for my mother in law, father in law and my birthday all same day and the staff suprised us with a glass of proscecco
An excellent venue for food which is of a very high standard and a menu which always includes something a little bit different. Staff extremely friendly and obliging.
Great food choices and helpful friendly staff. Good for weeknights and Saturday nights and Sunday lunches
The restaurant always looks clean and inviting. We were offered a choice of tables, so that was good. The food was of a good quality and nicely presented, but I had to report that my chicken breast was too tough. Another piece was prepared, but it came after we had both finished eating. My only constructive criticism of the waiting team is that one person serves the table, as it led to confusion.
The decor is contemporary and pleasant. The food selection was adequate but not extensive. The wine selection was very good and reasonably priced. The service was adequate but not exceptional, being told that you need to hurry up and pick your desserts because the kitchen staff want to go home is not ideal! its worth a visit, but it needs better staff to make it special and a must visit. The music being played was not conducive to a relaxed meal and was very much out of place.
Fantastic service, all staff catered for any need you could of possibly had while eating.
We met for Sunday lunch with friends we had not seen for a long time. It was very pleasant and comfortable.
Great food , the restaurant is a little tucked away but once you find it you don’t want to stop going back.
This was a very relaxed occasion, all staff could not do enough for us when we were there.
Attentive staff, freshly cooked quality food a bit on the pricey side. Music was intrusive and unsuitable.
Really bland food and over priced. Everyone at our table left something. Not a nice meal at all.
Very nice rally enjoyed the afternoon I was not rushed at all.
Great decor, great service, average food,
It would be a beautiful wedding venue, but the food needs to be better
We thoroughly enjoyed the tapas afternoon but we did have a City Living voucher. Not sure I would have paid the price it was said to be worth but certainly value with the voucher.
