We had afternoon tea at Belair House for 20 people after a family funeral. It was perfect . We were very well looked after and nothing was too much trouble. Tea was excellent with sandwiches, scones and cakes and plenty of everything. I would highly recommend Belair for any sort of function and wouldn't hesitate in going back.

Absolutely amazing, my night ran so smoothly from beginning to end. The staff are very friendly and the manager Rob does his best to make your night special which in this case he definately did. I will reccomend this venue to anyone that is looking. It really is perfect. Thank you again for making my 25th birthday so special. Chaniece visited Belair House on 25 Mar 2017

The food was very nice but like others we found the restaurant cold. The plates were also cold which meant the food got cold very quickly. It was very quiet but we were very well looked after. The steaks were lovely. visited Belair House on 03 Mar 2017

We had a great welcome and the waitress was very helpful and the level of service was good. Venue was great. Meal itself was OK. We had rump steak and the meat could've been a bit tastier. We had to ask for steak knives and water as these were not ready for us. I feel that in general it was a good experience. I would suggest that you also serve warm bread with the starter. visited Belair House on 18 Feb 2017

So glad we went to back to the venue we got marred at two years ago, staff had changed a little but that didn't make any difference at all, still friendly and very welcoming! Would definitely go back again but this time we won't be leaving it as long as we did before returning. Thank you for making our visit special once again. visited Belair House on 14 Feb 2017

The building and venue is very lovely but the service in the restaurant was the worst I have experienced and was very disappointing. We were the only people there and yet it took the waitress 15minutes just to take our drinks order. She then disapeared for half and hour and I had to go and find her to ask her to take our food order. Very poor service! Terrible waitress and I will not be returning! visited Belair House on 11 Feb 2017

The restaurant was much quieter than we expected for a Friday night (even in February), but this just meant we got great service - almost a private dining experience. And the food and wine was really good - definitely recommend the winter berry mess for dessert. visited Belair House on 03 Feb 2017

Venue was very attractive but this is the only positive thing I can say about our experience here. We waited over an hour and a half for our food. It was nice but definitely over priced. Would not have minded waiting but it was absolutely freezing cold and had to cover my daughter with a blanket to keep her warm. This was a birthday treat for my mother in laws 60th birthday so we was very disappointed with our experience. Will definitely not return here again. visited Belair House on 21 Jan 2017

Such a shame !!from the outside it had such potential. Having never been before it would have been nice to have actually been greeted at the 'welcome desk', rather than trapsing around the venue looking for a member of staff to seat us. Finally we found someone who seemed far from enthralled about us asking for our table and she clearly had no idea that anyone was booked in. I showed her on the sheet The dining room was cold and empty with no atmosphere. On seating us she then said oh I should get some menus... I thought this was odd as surely you Bring those with you as you walk past them ? Every time we ordered a drink and it arrived the glasses from the previous round were just left there... this is basic service, clearing empty glasses . The waiting staff were pleasant but. Clearly lacked leadership . We ordered and were informed that something we had asked for wasn't on the menu. Annoying should have been told first. I ordered asparagus, blue cheese, fig and ham. It came with no fig and a cunning little peach instead ?? A strange alternative that I should have been informed of . I went to the bar to order cocktails. They took a small age to arrive and although time consuming to make the bar was dead so no excuse. Dinner came.... I ordered butternut squash and sage risotto. The last straw as neither of these things were in my meal and instead the kitchen and waiting staff thought it acceptable to just pass off red pepper and some bizarre concoction with no explanation. I sent it back and asked for the bill. After a long wait for an explanation the waitress Informed me that she was sorry but her manager had failed to go through the menu changes with her. A poor excuse they clearly had run out of the necessary ingredients. Surely after the first course and telling us the wood pigeon starter we wanted wasn't available she would have known the menu changes. The bill came . Minus service as a gesture and of course the meal I didn't get. I got my card out infront of the waitress and she walked off. In the end bored of waiting,cold and still hungry I had to go to the bar to pay. The worst service and meal experience I've ever had the privilege of paying £85 for !!! Management need an intervention, and staff need basic hospitality training

The place was extremely cold, all the guests at the baby shower had to stay with their coats on. We told the staff about how cold it was but they said the fire place and the radiators were not working. The staff decided to put out these bar heaters out which were extremely dangerous for the young ones! Also, the food for our afternoon tea was nothing special, the scones were rock hard and it looked like the chef just shoved everything on a plate! At the end when I spoke with one of the staff whom smelt of alcohol about our problem she said the manager would call me back but I haven't got a call as of yet! She also had the bill in her hand and I obviously saw the amount, however she didn't give it to me and took back inside with her. A guy came out with the bill and the amount was more than the initial bill. Thank God I realized that they tried to overcharge us and asked to have the initial bill. Overall it was not a very pleasant event!!!! visited Belair House on 06 Jan 2017

I had a 40th birthday party at Belair House in August (but am very slow at writing a review). Sharnez and team were brilliant - really accommodating, both in the planning and on the night. and gave me lots of options to work with for food and drinks. It is a cool venue, with lots of interesting space and all my guests (and I ) loved it. I would definitely recommend it as a party or a wedding venue. Jan visited Belair House on 17 Sep 2016

Lovely new year at the Belair. Dinner was excellent and service very good and the new year dancing was fun as well. Didn't see too much of the roulette as it disappeared quite early and didn't see the magician at all but the live music was fun and the DJ once going was good as well. Lots of fun.

I was appalled by the treatment I experienced at Belair House on Thursday, 15 December and give it zero rating. I wanted to treat my step daughter to a special dinner on the occasion of her fiftieth birthday, with time to talk in pleasant, peaceful surroundings. We were dismayed to discover a private party in full swing. We were shown to a small table in the bar, an insult, and the noise was appalling. We left forthwith, our special occasion ruined. I am at a loss to understand why my booking was accepted in the first place. I complained the following day, but have heard nothing, except this request to review! visited Belair House on 15 Dec 2016

I was looking for a wedding venue locally and a friend recommended belair. I took the same.friend there on Wednesday and we were very disappointed. We were greeted by a girl who led us to the bar. The jazz was OK, but we were thinking of a snack and then we were left for about 30 minutes. My friend had lost her appetite by then. I ordered soup, which was lovely although a bit bland. The waiter promised me salt and pepper which never arrived. He then proceeded to smash some glasses. The bill took ages and we were again left for another hour. There is a vile smell of toilets as you enter which even the lovely doorway couldn't help. Needless to say don't go there! visited Belair House on 14 Dec 2016

I booked Belair House for a reception following the funeral of my Partner. Throughout the organising of the reception the staff could not have more helpful or flexible especially as part of the venue was transformed into a gallery for my Partner's paintings (he was a professional portrait artist). On the day itself, the service was exemplary and the afternoon tea provided was excellent and plentiful. The venue had no difficulty dealing with the large number of attendees. Highly recommended. rodr visited Belair House on 12 Sep 2016

Beautiful building, great location and nice staff - but it all feel a bit tired, cold and off. Food was ok but not brilliant, the rooms could do with an update and it - literally - was freezing cold. Would pass by for a coffee after a walk but not for lunch again. Sorry - but so much potential! visited Belair House on 03 Dec 2016

The service was terrible. We were a party of 10 and our waitress failed to place an order for 3 of the starters so the rest of us finished our starters before theirs arrived. Generally the speed of service was very slow and forgetful although the waitress was very nice and apologetic. The food was fine but not very special. The real reason to go to Belair is the location. If the kitchen ever manages to serve food as good as the location this place would rock. visited Belair House on 04 Dec 2016

I recently hired Belair House for a surprise 60th party for my Dad. It was without a doubt, a complete success, and that is all thanks to Sharnez and her hard working team! She was attentive to all my emails and most of all, remained cool, calm and collected on the night (which helped me no end!). My Dad was blown away by the evening, and the gorgeous venue. I have no doubt we will use it again in the future. Jenni visited Belair House on 26 Nov 2016

Building is beautiful...But afternoon tea experience was not good.. someone sitting with a baby at our table when we arrived... so we asked to be moved where it wold be a bit quieter. Ordered gluten free afternoon tea and 1 gluten tea....Both came up on the same stand half gluten free and half gluten. A gluten macaroon was put on the gluten free side and i ate it and afterward had a very bad stomach inflamation and fell asleep for 4 hours owing to the gluten eaten. I am coeliac and this is very dangerous for me to eat...This is classed as cross contamination mixing gluten and gluten free together.. I phoned Belair twice to make sure about the order... And no way should these two be served on the same plate,,, Was very disapointed especially as it is such a lovely place to eat, visited Belair House on 11 Nov 2016

I took my date to Belair house on Saturday lunchtime when the restaurant was completely empty although there were people sitting in the bar having a drink. We ordered a bottle of wine in the bar to have a pre meal drink and then made our way into the restaurant which was a lovely large room with a real fire in the fireplace. The staff were attentive yet respectful of our wanting to talk. We are both vegetarian and the menu is a well balanced mix of vegetarian dishes as well as fish and meat so something for everyone. We had roasted vegetables with hoummus and bread as a starter to share which was plenty of food for two people. My partner followed with mussels which was a generous portion in a traditional Marniere sauce. I had the risotto which was perfectly tasty and enjoyable. We shared a bottle of house Pinot Grigio which was a perfect accompaniment to the meal. We then spent most of the afternoon chatting whilst finishing our wine until they were making up the tables for the evening dinner by which time it was getting dark outside. All in all it's a perfect place to go if you want a nice quiet Saturday lunchtime meal to chat to your friends in a wonderful georgian house set in a country park. It really feels like you are in the country. Its a beautiful house and I was surprised it wasnt busier as the menu is better than any of the competing local establishments and priced the same as you would pay in any local pub. visited Belair House on 05 Nov 2016

First visit to Belair for a working lunch. The receptionist/waitress was very friendly and I could not fault the service. Food was tasty and good value. However, a medium size glass of Merlot was £8.50 which was on the pricey side. We were the only diners which did feel a bit odd, probably because it was mid week. It's a delightful location and the venue is fabulous. I would definitely go back but probably at the weekend and would order a house red. Over all very good. visited Belair House on 02 Nov 2016

Took my.mum and two aunts who are visiting london from America. We had a lovely lunch in lovely surroundings. Staff were friendly and attentive. We had a lovely time. Belair is a gorgeous building. There's also a lovely outdoor terrace if it's good weather. Would visit again. I particularly liked the wine, I had a cheeky glass of chenin blanc and it was lush. visited Belair House on 04 Nov 2016
