Misled by the fact that OGH hasn't yet taken down its superb 2019 Tennerfest menu from its website, we arrived at the Brasserie to find out there was no such menu on offer. However, given Maitre D'Hotel Alessandro's warm welcome, we nevertheless decided to stay...and did not regret having done so. Alessandro looked after us superbly and ensured that our lunch progressed at just the right pace. The starters were more on the nouvelle cuisine side, size wise, but the hamburgers and wedges that followed made up for them and filled one up more than enough. They were truly prime beef with an accompanying gherkin to give them an edge. The above plus a glass of Prosecco, another of Chianti and two coffees - £79.More

Had evening meal and breakfast in the brassiere restaurant. Excellent food and service. The staff were very pleasant and efficient in general. Our waiter ( Nazario ) was charming with excellent customer service skill. Well done.

They tried to charge me 40% extra on my bill. £14 for a glass of house white wine is ridiculous. Service was poor. There is 0 atmosphere in the Brasserie and the food was also pretentious and not great either. For its high end prices,...I thought the food would be far better. Far too expensive and extremely disappointing.More

Great food, lovely surroundings and the head waiter went out of his way to ensure we had a lovely meal. As mentioned above it’s a brilliant place. Value for money, for the service we had, quality of food and wine the answer has to be...yes.More

It is convenient for those who stay in this hotel. Generous breakfast. For dinner a bit too expensive for the quality, however enjoyable.

My wife and I decided to have lunch at the Olive Grove within the OGH. We sat down at 12:30 and were the only customers on the terrace. Whilst we watched workmen muck about with the fountain, dragging hosepipes, knocking about and discussing late invoice...payments during a very loud mobile phone call, we looked through the menu. The food was great.....when it arrived. An hour and twenty minutes to get through 2 courses was a bit much. Throughout our lunch we had three different waiters, the chap in charge came out 3 times to ask if everything was alright. So great food, nice entertainment with the scruffy workmen shuffling past dragging pipes etc, just don’t expect speedy service.More
