It’s that time of year for thoughts of our Christmas celebrations again and with this being our 4th year having our Company Christmas party with you it reminded me of how we enjoy using the Ravenwood so much and couldn’t imagine going anywhere else. We have had such wonderful times and fond memories of every year. The food is always superb, atmosphere brilliant and of course the staff cannot be more efficient and friendly, and of course its always topped by you greeting us at the door with that wonderful Merry Christmas and welcoming smile AND of you remember us all so well! must be the unforgettable dodgy dancing throughout the evening ! ha ha
I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you for your hospitality throughout the years we have used the Ravenswood, especially as my Directors/Managers & business guests who stay with you regularly during the course of the week. They are always made to feel so at home whilst having to have the poignant task of leaving their families during their business week, they all wouldn’t want to stay anywhere else, the Directors feel like they have their own personal rooms! I think that speaks for its self, and topped with the friendliness of all the staff where nothings too much trouble and the restaurant with your super chefs with their unsurpassed & delicious menu’s, why would they want to go elsewhere!
Personally i find it a pleasure making reservations and communicating with your reception staff as they are always cheerful, well organised and efficient which makes it a quick and easy task for me which during the course of a very busy day is wonderful. Thank you again Yvonne please pass our thanks to all the staff and we look forward to having many more delightful times with you all.

Sunday lunch, 21st August,
Jim's 80th birthday lunch! Now that the excitement is over and we are back to normal just wanted to say a big thank-you to you for your help and advice on all the arrangements for Jim's birthday lunch. It was a great success and everyone enjoyed the event and commented on the food - how good it was.
Please thank all staff involved in helping to make it such a memorable event!
Yours, Cathy Snell
The scenery of the hotel was just perfect: pure English countryside. Friendliness of the hotel staff was beyond praise - I've travelled a lot but probably never have seen so much personal touch and sincere wilingness to help and make my stay absolutely fantastic. The room, main building and restaurants were exactly as expected - cosy, full of small details and historical artefacts. But attitude of the hotel staff - that what made a real difference, from reception to the owner of this hotel who managed to find time to chat with every guest in the hotel.

Hope this is still your email address. I just wanted to thank you for such a lovely evening on Wednesday when we came to celebrate my Dad's 78th birthday with a lovely meal at Ravenwood. We really enjoyed the evening and the food was excellent - as usual. Thank you so much for the nice touch of the sparkler on Dad's dessert and card. We have just finished paying rent for our youngest daughter for the past 3 years whilst she was at university and this meant that we didn't eat out as often as we would have liked for a good while. So, we are really looking forward to spending many more evenings at Ravenwood - our favourite place to eat.

I have been a huge fan of Ravenwood Hall since having my wedding reception there (20 years ago now!) The food is consistently great, there is always a warm welcome and the gardens and surroundings are peaceful and beautiful. The garden/pool terrace is the perfect haven in summer to enjoy lunch and a cool drink.

I have eaten at Ravenwood Hall many times, the food is quite simply, outstanding. However when you combine the beautifully prepared dishes with the welcome you receive and the attentive service it really does add up to a very wonderful experience. As a side note, my wife and Ned (our border terrier) stayed for a weekend last October, our wedding anniversary... I didn't want to leave.

We held our wedding reception here in Summer 2009 and were overwhelmed by the quality of the food and drink. We had such a fantastic time as did our friends and family that we make the effort to go back as often as we can as the food, surroundings and staff are so fantasic. Special mention to Yvonne the co-ordinator for her effort throughout and wedding experience.

A very friendly, calm and warming atmosphere. The staff are pleasant and have time to talk to you. Lacking, I think in a lot of establishments. A bonus for us they take dogs and they are also welcomed. The food is hot, well presented and tasty.
