The setting, service, food and champagne were perfect. Good price too. The afternoon tea was enjoyed to background piano music!

We had a wonderful lunch for my birthday last week. We all chose the tasting menu with wine. Each plate was exquisite, the flavours unique, and the wines complemented the food. The staff were attentive and knowledgable about each dish, they couldn't do enough to please us. Then we had a lovely walk in the grounds. We all loved it... More

What a stunning location...and should have been a perfect evening. Cannot fault the food...the Chateaubriand was simply magical and the desert and accompanying wine perfect but there was a major problem! Service - absolutely shocking, poor and of a very low standard. The maître dee was embarrassed for us and ashamed of our experience. Hhhmmm - sorry guys, you got... More

I came along for an "Old Girls" dinner, the last time I had visited EM was for a wedding reception some years ago. Well, Eastwell Manor has certainly upped it's game! The place is beautiful, I mean really beautiful. The food was amazing. My companion had forgotten to let the organiser know I am a vegetarian. No problem for EM.... More

Had an amazing meal here on Saturday - Our party ranged in age from 70 years down to 9 years and everyone had a fantastic time. The kids were a bit nervous about going to a 'posh restaurant' but were immediately put at ease by the excellent staff. There isn't actually a children's menu, but they offer a good selection...

I visited the hotel for a lunch (afraid I could not find the review for restaurant only) with two friends and it was an extremely good experience. We wandered around the property which is lovely for a while and then sat in the bar where we had some drinks. Our order was taken from us while still in the bar... More

This reviewer is rather pathetic. He has made numerous attempts to post a damaging review and when we respond accurately - which places him in a bad light - he abuses his right as a reviewer and asks for his review to be withdrawn. He then re-posts an identical review. All rather boring and tedious. More
