1792 Bar & Grill
We love our hotel and what we do, so why not come and visit us to see the changes.
One of the reasons why we love Hawkstone Park is down to its beautiful setting situated in the stunning Shropshire countryside. With our three golf courses and historical tourist attraction in a unique landscape there is always something going on.
We ate at the restaurant while staying at the hotel through Secret Escapes. The menu had sufficient choice and the portion sizes were excellent. Letting the side down was the noise level in the room. Two very large groups of men who were very loud dominated the dining room, the lounge area and even the snug; for they could be heard everywhere, sometimes making it hard to hear the companion next to me.
Setting aside the noise issue, as a restaurant associated with a golf club and hotel I didn't expect much but it served decent food at great value. On that basis I would recommend it.
lovely food and waiter was very attentive, not surprising as there were only six people in the restaurant including my husband and myself. Lacking atmosphere.
Booked a table for my wife and I as it was my Wife’s birthday that day.
This was booked as we had previously dinned at hawkstone a few times over the years.
Very noisy due to a function and we were sat at table number 19.
The surrounding grass windows etc very dirty but may have been due to the function that’s day.
We greeted well and taken to our table but unknown to us was that the doors near us led outside to a smoking area so we have several occasions were all we could smell was second hand smoke and a cold draft.
The waitresses were polite but there seemed to be a lack of organisation or training.
The food was OK but not to the standard we had been used to at Hawketone.
Overall very disappointing especially as I had booked this for a nice quiet birthday meal with my Wife.
So sorry to mark this restaurant down as the chef brigade are obviously doing their bit - a table of 4 all had 3 courses and all excellent & fairly priced too. Unfortunately the serving staff are in need of considerably more training, they were all pleasant enough but their customer skills were lacking. Worst of all was the huge amount of very noisy and foul mouthed golfers who had no consideration at all for other diners and this was in no way managed. If 1792 want to attract diners other than golfers they really need to think about a separate dining space for those who would like an intimate evening that doesn’t involve having to shout to be heard by the person next to you.
Highly recommend , the establishment was lovely very posh , we arrived 30 minutes early for are booking and the staff were more than happy to seat us and we were served straight away. The afternoon tea was gorgeous more than enough for three people ( although we ate everything) . We sat by the window with a lovely view of the grounds . Will definitely be coming again .
Good food but unfortunately the service wasn’t good which given the fact there was only about 15 people in there there is no excuse really. A long wait for food and empty drink glasses was a shame.
Everybody had a very enjoyable evening and there was no problem with the food or ambience, the only thing that did grate was that we ordered a bottle of sauvignon blanc expecting the house wine since we weren't presented with a wine list, and nobody in the group was a wine connoisseur. Given there were six of us the wine disappeared pretty quickly so we ordered a second bottle so imagine our surprise at the end of the evening to find the wine was nearly £27 a bottle, which from memory is significantly more than we paid the last time we ate in the restaurant, and a lesson to us to always ask for the wine list and not leave it to the staff to choose.
Had a great overnight stay which included our meal at 1792 bar and grill.
Food and service were great
Only one thing (and it’s not a complaint) we contacted the hotel prior to ask about what was included in the package with regards to the restaurant and we were told anything off the main menu, but when we were given menus it was a choice of 4 items for starter, main and dessert.
What we had was fantastic and couldn’t fault the good or service.
We then put a dent in the gin bar for the rest of the evening
Worst meal ever from the service to the food, would never return
Food wasnt great and waitied 2 hours for it would not recommend it!
I was very disappointed with the poor service and lack of ambiance, it actually felt very uncomfortable. We were a party of 12 and the only table in restaurant to start off with, it took 45min for us to get our drinks, we were not offered more drinks through service and had to go and look for service, the food was just ok , there is definitely room for improvement!
Had a delightful meal on the Saturday evening before Christmas. I was very happy indeed to bring my brother and his wife to the new restaurant at Hawkstone Park. We had a lovely evening. Mike Martin and the staff looked after us with friendliness and professionalism.
Lovely that Hawkstone Park is really back n track.
terrible food vegetables were almost raw turkey was sliced so thinly . such a shame as it has been refurbished . staff stood around chatting the entire time so we had to go to the bar to get our own drinks .wish we hadn't bothered going .
Not impressed in general with this restaurant e.g. We had to hunt for someone to show us to our seats, when they did come over to help us they said we had not booked and then said 'oh sorry I didn't see your name there.' When we were seated the waitress did not know what lagers were available and the champagne (by the glass) ordered was incorrect at first and then on the second attempt was completely flat. The starter was eventually served with some bread which was cold - disappointing and would have been much nicer if it was warmed and my sons mozzeralla on garlic bread arrived without any cheese. When the waitress asked if we were happy with the starters we explained the lack of cheese on the garlic bread and her response was "well he's eaten most of it now" and walked away. I wont be attending again as we have far better restaurants in Telford and the Shropshire region.
tasty food, attentive service, but a bit cold as the restaurant is massive.
we would go again and again. loved our evening.
