Good value set lunch in fabulous surroundings

Eastwell is just stunning and so always special. The set lunch menu is reasonably priced making this a really accessible treat. Warm welcome and great service. Highlights were the hot, smoked salmon with crab and crayfish and the venison with sausage. The hake was also great. Only one of us... read 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

I booked this venue for afternoon tea 6 to 8 weeks prior to attending. DUE TO POOR SIGNAGE WE WENT TO THE WRONG PART AND MY GUESTS FROZE AS THEY WHERE TAKEN TO THE CORRECT LOCATION.

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respond accurately - which places him in a bad light - he abuses his right as a reviewer and asks for his review to be withdrawn.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

I have to start my review by noting that my friend and I almost didn't book our third attempt at afternoon tea here due to the rude and disrespectful manner in which management replies to negative reviews on TripAdvisor. Several are way out of line and do not make your establishment look good in any which way. We did decide... More

What a treat lunch at Eastwell was recently. To spend time in these delightful surroundings for a few hours makes one feel as though one is staying there. Splendid food, courteous staff, a piano playing softly in the background, sunlight streaming through the Manor Restaurant windows make for a lovely outing

I brought 3 international business visitors here for lunch. I hadn't been for a few years, and I just love the historical charm of this place, and so did my visitors. So it's a great place to impress. A 2 course lunch is £18, which is great value for the standard of produce used, varied menu, and level of service.... More
