Amazing first impression as we arrived at Hayfield Manor. Beautiful and cozy decor and a live singer smiling and singing the classics. We were brought immediately into the dining room and every staff member who spoke to us was friendly and welcoming.

The food was excellent, I ordered the fish of the day as main, and calamari as appetizer. The staff are friendly and accommodating. The whole ambiance of the restaurant was classy and nice we really liked it.

We had Suzanne in Training (what her tag said) and we couldn't have asked for better. Suzanne described parts of the menu with an enthusiasm that showed her appreciation for the food. I had the lamb, which she described as a delicacy and tasted the same. She, along with the rest of the staff, were incredibly attentive to our requests... More
