We regularly use this venue for lunch. Although the side dishes are very small (eg coleslaw) the main portions are OK and quality good. The menu is relatively limited but both service and quality of cooked food fine. We know all the eateries in Alford very well and The Manor House is the very best location for eating outside (at...

We have Visited a couple of times after stumbling upon it when travelling through Alford. The tea rooms are lovely and the staff dedicated to the cause, as they are volunteers. The craft fairs in May and August are fabulous and well worth a visit.

The house is a great place to visit but we also loved the rural life museum behind the house,the staff here are so informative and make you feel so welcome. My teenage son who loves rural history loved the model of the... More

The windmill is well worth a visit and not only education but very enjoyable. Unfortunately the tea rooms were closed because we have been there before and found them very good.

Superb World War One museum, all based on local accounts and giving a totally new angle on the conflict. Learned a lot and it was very interesting. The nurse who was worried she might appear to be 'emancipated' and a Suffragette was very telling. Could spend all day here, plus the building is interesting and the garden lovely. One of... More

Much bigger and more interesting than expected, so we spent longer here. Plenty to look at, friendly and helpful staff - all for a very reasonable price

What a place to stop off, watch the world go by in such a historic setting. The craft fair,museum and other events go to mark this manor house as Alfords finest . The thatched roof alone is worth a visit.
