we came here on Sunday 7th December for my husbands 60th birthday with 5 other members of the family and had a brilliant time. The food was great, the service was excellent and the atmosphere was lovely. The manor was decorated tastefully for Christmas and there was a real fire. We arrived at 1 pm and left after 5pm as...

We were late - that's another story - they dealt with this impeccably. The food was delicious - the starters were particularly fab. The kids were included always - but it's the wonderfully understated service that just tops every thing. You were wonderful today - thank you 😊😊💕

We called in on Saturday 20th December for quick bite to eat and ended up ordering the cream tea. The staff could not have been more friendly and helpful. We were given a superb 3 tier tray of sandwiches and cakes, which we did not manage to finish. The warm homemade scones, jam and clotted cream were superb. Definitely going... More

I am not sure which planet the previous reviewer (Nicki M) just flew in from but I suggest that they return from whence they came with all possible haste. We have eaten a number of times at the Orestone Manor and it has always been excellent. One of the finest restaurants in one of the best locations for miles around.... More

First visit. They were really busy with a large party for a conference buffet lunch. We had drinks by the roaring log fire, in elegant lounge. Reception, bar staff waiters and waitress have all had traditional training and know how to treat their customers. Polite, respectful, discreet, friendly, nothing too much trouble. Food bsolutely delicious. We'll definitely back for murder... More

Sunday lunch at the Orestone Manor was definitely one of the best Sunday lunches I have had at any restaurant. We had the traditional roast beef and received a very generous portion of extremely tender and very tasty beef along with lovely crunchy proper roast potatoes, freshly cooked Yorkshire pud and a good selection of veg. My father has been... More

Our order was taken as we enjoyed a drink by the fire. When our meal was ready, the attentive waiters showed us to our table. The food was beautifully presented which was matched by the taste. The selection of food was good, including a range of meat free options. A lovely setting, great food and fantastic service!

We attended the Fawlty Towers Night a few weeks ago and were not disappointed. The whole place reeks of class and attention to detail, nothing is too much trouble. It has a lovely cosy, comfortable atmosphere. The 3 course dinner was excellent, well presented, local produce. The staff were attentive and polite. A very entertaining evening. I had afternoon tea... More
