The food was great value for money, went in with a friend, steak was cooked perfectly. I personally prefer more smaller venues with a more friendly approach, but the meal was good and that's what we went in for.

This place is a mystery to us. How can you have such a lovely building in a great location which has no appeal whatsoever. This was our second visit, first time was at a weekend. On this occasion, we visited at 4pm on a Monday and left at 5.15pm. When we arrived, there were two families there. By 5pm we... More

The beef was very good. The gammon was under cooked. We had purchased for the carvery and should have looked at the veg in more detail. Bad selection of vegetables where awful to look at and didn't taste good at all. We were very hungry and didn't want to wait for fresh cooked food (big mistake)! The broccoli was yellow... More

Food was OK but staff made you feel as if you were an inconvenience. Had to wait for carvery while chef 'faffed' around. Wasn't exactly a cheerful sole to say the least.

1st visit for a few years and not entirely disappointed but really should be much much better, bar man while a bit too informal for my liking was friendly and efficient, the rest of the team including the managers said the right things but clearly didn't want to be there. We popped in for carvery but it looked dry &... More

We visited last night for Birthday celebrations a party of six adults and one child arriving at 7pm. This is somewhere I have never been before and on arrival was impressed by the grounds and setting of the pub however this was all they had to offer. On finding a table in the gardens to enjoy the sunshine we proceeded... More

Went with family and friends to Overstone Manor today and won't be going back anytime soon. Getting a drink was a nightmare as you were expected to queue due to there not being sufficient staff. We ordered our meals which arrived in an ad hoc fashion, resulting in a meal being forgotten. After to serving staff came to confirm that... More

As a family of 8 we visited The Overstone Manor for a get together meal on a Sunday lunch time. I'm giving a balanced opinion here that the place itself is impressive, most of the staff attentive and the food OK (if a little manufactured for some tastes). The general downside was the number of people, the queues for drink... More
