Just home from a spa day including lunch in Bertrams for 24 ladies!!! It was absolutely perfect! The food and drink in Bertrams was amazing!! Please can you pass on a HUGE thank you to all the staff involved in today. From Clare organising the treatments and the therapists to Dino, Spencer and the Bertrams team, every moment was wonderful. The day was perfect and we are already looking forward to next year. The only negative comments was that the day went too fast!!!!!! Thank you to you all and have a very Merry Christmas 🎄

Lovely meal and very friendly staff, the only thing which I think could be improved is, when we arrived we were seated at a table and asked if we would like any water, we were never asked if we would like a drink from the bar, after waiting a further 5 minutes we had to ask if we could have a drink. I personally think that if you are being seated straight away and not getting a chance to go to the bar then the waiter/waitress should ask if you require a drink from the bar. Other than that the meal was gorgeous.

Great food, polite staff and fantastic surroundings. Downside i was having a late celebration of my birthday with my hubby who had been away. Only my second evening at Bertram's a friend booked the previous, the weather was horrendous really rainy and after our meal I was looking forward to cocktails in the bar near the outside spa. I joked with the waitress and said just got to get from the restaurant to over their pointing at the bar. At no point did she say it didn't open till nine, we paid and made our way through the rain to the bar to be told we couldn't have a drink as its only open for spa customers till nine and was referred back to the bar. I was embarrassed and we left a disappointing end to the celebration hence why I gave the visit a 3.

Soup starter was nothing special. Just because I'm coeliac doesn't mean I want boring g/f sliced bread when others are served lovely looking thick crusty rolls. That was disappointing. Mains were ok but again for the price were nothing special. Dauphinois potatoes were literally swimming in cheese. It was a bit much. Didn't have a pudding as not much choice for g/f. Need to put more thought into the pudding menu. Surroundings and staff lovely and attentive as always.

Visited here for my mum's birthday. Yet again a lovely meal. At the end of the meal mum had ordered desert which the chef had wrote in chocolate 'happy birthday' - mum was thrilled. The only complaint I have is the lift is still out of order - a good couple of weeks this has been. My mum is disabled and so found the stairs hard work.

On the whole the food is very good and the setting very nice. However last time I went I got the beef from the Christmas menu because I had it the week before and it was lovely. This time it was full of fat and nowhere near as good. Bit disappointed to be honest. Hasn't put me off though as it's usually very good.

Starters are nice but the main courses aren't brilliant. Wine was lovely and although service is good I always feel the Managers are pushy. Every time I go I feel like I am being pushed to buy more wine and being talked into buying specials when I've made my choice. I think they need to back off and let people just enjoy their meals. Attention to detail is nice but constantly being interrupted is not. It's a fine balance.

Thoroughly pleased with this place. The restaurant continuously delivers excellent food and exceptional service but is always a great venue to use for meeting clients. I also decided to use this place for my teams Xmas dinner, and once again they managed to deliver outstanding food and service. Would highly recommend

I regularly dine at Bertrams the food is always delicious, it doesn't matter if I'm popping in on a Tuesday with my friends for their lovely burger night or dining another other time the quality is fantastic. The staff are always welcoming, attentive and give 100%. Tops marks all round

Went to the Supper Club. Verdict is that the quality of the food is superb and the Wine was also very welcome. Only let down was the Dessert wasn't of the same caliber, I found it quite dry and the accompanying portion of Ice Cream was meagre. Saying that I still plan to return, just not for the dessert.

Went for the Tuesday Burger Night deal, no complaints there. Excellent burger, ok fries and the sauce was delicious. Staff were polite and attentive. Downside, if you like Ale, they only have 1 bottled Ale, and it wasn't nice. Best to treat yourself to a cocktail or glass of wine. I plan to go again soon though.

Overall the location is excellent - looking out over Pendle Hill. The staff are attentive and the food is always excellent, try the Tuesday burger night or the Thursday 2 courses for £20 really good value and a variety of food available for all tastes.

The staff were, as always, very attentive and friendly. We went for the Thursday Supper Club and, although the meal was a lot cheaper than it would be usually, the food was the same brilliant quality. We really enjoyed it and will definitely be back!

Very good. We had difficulty getting there for time booked due to unexpected family problems. They were very understanding and keen to accomodate us. What started out a bad night for us ended up being very good. The meal and the service was xcellent.

The food was excellent but what was planned as a quiet anniversary (42) dinner was rather marred. We were seated next to a hen party, probably 20 strong, and parties of 8/10 on the opposite side. Hence the quiet dinner was totally scuppered. Why would any restaurant manager place any couple in this situation? It is not as though we booked late.

From the long driveway to the lift that takes you upto the restaurant, it all oozes class. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable and are very attentive. I had a fillet steak which was cooked to perfection. Well worth a visit.

Food was very good - as was the service. Great atmosphere. Our friends experienced it for the first time and loved some of the dishes but not all. They were disappointed with the portion sizes but it does depend what you order. Overall - very nice

Lovely restaurant, friendly staff. Have previously eaten there at lunchtime when food has been excellent, rather disappointing this evening. Artisan garlic bread with mozzarella turned out to be cheese on toast, !! Classic burger dry and overcooked. Will go again but possibly only for lunch.

Felt rushed to order our food whilst still awaiting a member of our party. Inattentive staff - had to walk over the cluster of staff behind a computer to ask twice for tea inclusive with afternoon tea!..then had to ask again for sugar and milk! Waited ages to finally again go and ask for the bill..to wait ages for our change. The food was nice, wasn't overly busy. Just a shame about the service really.

We had a lovely evening. Food was excellent, service really good. The sad part if the evening was that we had to leave early due to an issue with electricity surveys taking place - not Bertram's fault!!

Excellent value for money on food any night of the week, but unbelievable value on a Tuesday with the £10 burger offer. The food was as delicious as ever and the service was without fault.

Lovely relaxed atmosphere with friendly professional service at our dining table from a total of 5 staff members. Food excellent quality and decent portion size. However drink prices expensive at £6.80 glass white wine Sauvignon Blanc and £4.20 large draught beer!

Another lovely meal with fabulous service. Love the fact they offer gluten free options as my husband has coeliac disease, so there's none of the awkwardness going through the menu deciphering what he can and can't eat.
