Review of Woburn by Gary Cooper on February 24th, 2010
Magpies Hotel Woburn We had a great weekend at Magpies Htel located in the main high st in Woburn. A very friendly hotel with small pub and restaurant. The food was particually good value and far exceeded our expectations, considering its cost. Our room was very clean and well presented allbe it up the top of the building. We will definately like to return when the safari Park opens, which we missed out on
Review of Woburn by Ann Waine on January 19th, 2008
Don't dare to complain in this restaurant! We found Paris House (Woburn Park) in Hardens Guide, where it had an excellent review. When we arrived, we found the lounge rather cramped and the decor tired but we hoped the food would compensate for this. We chose the Gastronomique menu which was excellent apart from the fondue potato, which can only be described as 'cold and old'. The young guy on the next table complained very politley about the potato and while we were nodding in agreement the chef, Peter Chandler appeared at his table and began remonstrating with him in a loud voice. He then proceeded to ask the young couple to leave and almost threw them out of the door! He then apologized to the rest of the diners and said that the complainant had been speaking 'bollocks'. The diners at the other tables nodded in agreement and confided to each other that the guy who complained 'obviously knew nothing about food' (we met in the car park and he told us he was a chef!). We have eaten in the best restaurants throughout this country and the world and needless to say, we would not recommend it and we shall not be returning, especially as the final bill was in excess of £200.
