    It was good, food was nice, but didn't have the chateau briand that we wanted. The spotlights are a bit blinding and we had to move table. Kids in the restaurant after 8 on a Saturday didn't help either. Staff were very good, mixed experience based on above

    Four of us dined here on Sunday and had the Roast Chicken x 2. We all thoroughly enjoyed it, a very generous platter of food, too much for us to finish, but everything was really delicious.

    I loved every moment in this restaurant. The staff were amazing, attentive, friendly and helpful. The 21st plates for my son and his girlfriend were really kind and thoughtful. Thank you so much to everyone who was working that night - you all made it a really special night.

    Food was lovely and service great but we never like 10% service charge though. We like seeing staff getting the tips

    Great Sunday lunch menu. Really delicious food. We went for the sharing roast beef which was excellent, although more gravy please. The sourdough bread and butter with duckskin seasoning on the table was fabulous - we ate it ALL! In fact, we ate everything put in front of us. Finished with a divine cheese plate.

    Thoroughly enjoyed Grazing overall. The food was very good - the dessert was the stand out dish, especially accompanied by a very nice glass of Tokaji Service does not live up to the food. There was no one to greet customers at the entrance via the hotel - a member of the hotel staff took us in. Initially we were also left waiting at the desk and they struggled to find our reservation. Once at the table things were better although nothing beyond standard service. I had to call back the waiter who took our order as he sped off as soon as we ordered food without asking if we wanted wine! I then also had to remind him that we had not had the champagne included in the menu we chose We have eaten at Mark Greenaway's last restaurant where the service was significantly better. Restaurant is nicely done . A little cramped maybe. I would also not put high tables too close to normal Tables. It puts the backsides of customers directly in your eyeline and little more than a shoulders width away!

    Deeply, deeply disappointing. Service was friendly but poor. The atmosphere in the restaurant was cold. I had the haggis starter which was acceptable but barely warm enough to eat. We ordered the 'special' chateaubriand. We were not informed that the special did not come with a side order so had to order sides after the dish arrived. The dish was supposed to contain a 550g piece of meat. It barely amounted to a single 200g fillet when served (and, yes, my guests and I have eaten a chateaubriand so we did know what we were ordering). My two guests literally ate the meat within a couple of mouthfuls. They ate the side orders separately. We joked about that being the 'special' and wondered what the rest of the menu was like. We soon found out. One sirloin steak that was ordered was completely inedible. My guest politely chewed the same piece of meat for about 15 minutes before giving up. I complained and the cost of that dish was removed from the bill. My guest left hungry. The fish and chip dish, while edible, was possibly the smallest serving I have ever seen in a restaurant. We didn't chance any desert and left promptly. Probably the worst meal we have experienced in many years. Not only would I not recommend this restaurant I will proactively tell people to avoid it at all costs. The overall experience suggested much deeper problems than merely a one-off bad night for the chef.

    Food of the usual high standard that we’ve come to expect from Mark and his team, but the new restaurant is lacking in atmosphere and the dishes, while nice, are not particularly adventurous. We visited over lunch and there was a conference party dining buffet style at tables around us. This meant lots of people coming and going from tables at different times, talking on mobile phones, getting up leaving half eaten dishes on table, etc. It was still a nice birthday lunch, but overall we were disappointed.

    The game terrine was full of shot which I hadn’t been warned about beforehand. The chicken main didn’t come with any sides, unlike the other mains we ordered, so we ordered separate side dishes but the portion size of the chicken was enormous in comparison to the other mains. A smaller portion of chicken served automatically with sides would have been much better.

    Food was delicious presentation had a lot to be desired Delivering food on a tray with your starter and main in a cooking pot is not my idea of upmarket restaurants especially as the three courses was £22 The starter was unusual - lettuce leaves with a sauce and some Parmesan ! Mmm perhaps not

    Food was lovely, service was good but there was a problem with an offer that was on for free non alcoholic beer the nobody seemed to know about. I had to show the email I had received. We did get the beer however. We also received a very strange phone message, left earlier in the day, I assume they called to confirm the booking but we couldn't make out what they were saying.

    We both had the whole plaice on the bone. Superb. The portions of sides are not huge. On our second visit we will order a wider selection.

    I have been a Mark Greenaway fan for years and going to his last restaurant any December we were in Edinburgh visiting family so was excited to try Grazing. However it lacked the soul and good food his previous restaurant had. Our haggis arrived cold, the crackling on the pork had little crunch, the “slider” was a regular sized burger, we weren’t asked how we would like the burger cooked so arrived well done. I found myself trying to defend my choice of restaurant but my table were not convinced. It was no where near the experience I was expecting and even as a hotel restaurant it was sadly average.

    The staff were excellent but I don’t think the food was all that great and very overpriced for what we had. I had to send my main course back as it was tepid as opposed to even warm The place lacked atmosphere for a Christmas Day event with very few decorations around the restaurant and we noticed that several other diners had complaints along the way.

    I booked a reservation over a month ago for what I thought was the Christmas Dinner tasting menu. After placing the reservation I was contacted by the restaurant asking for deposit (which I paid) and if anyone had food allergies (I supplied that one had gluten allergies). The reservation was confirmed. She told me I would receive a copy of the menu prior as it was still being planned. (I never got a copy.) I was told my deposit would be deducted from my final bill at dinner. It was not. When I arrived for my reservation I was again asked about allergies (they did not have a record I had already given this information.) We were seated in a room right by the pass window with low dark ceilings in a booth and handed an a la carte menu. I asked about the tasting menu for Christmas and was told that was only for lunch and they simply had a limited menu for dinner which was only a few dishes from their regular menu. There were no apologies for not communicating that prior when I made the reservation. The manager simply said that was the menu they had. They had their full regular menu posted so I inquired about just getting fish and chips since nothing on the menu really interested me but that. But I was told that wasn't an option. Again no apologies. They obviously are able to make it since it is on their regular menu. The waiter we had was well meaning but clearly wasn't adept with service yet. We ordered a glass of wine which didn't come and when we asked for it again, he left to get it and then had to come back and ask what we ordered again. He too had to ask about food allergies. Does no one communicate with each other? The food was OK. Certainly not a special Christmas dinner. I felt like I was eating in an expensive diner. Also, why did I have to make a deposit for an abbreviated regular menu? A deposit I never received back? Very disappointing experience. Would probably not eat here again.
