Our lunch today was a gift from colleagues and we had been looking forward to it for some time. Reception and initial bar service was excellent. We arrived early to have a pre lunch drink but felt pressured to take our place early in the restaurant. Our order was taken in the bar and when we were... read more

Yesterday, four friends and I had afternoon tea at Eastwell Manor, I believe it was served in the library. From start to finish I can't fault it. The staff were lovely, very attentive and polite, the afternoon tea was all delicious. Lovely warm homemade scones, homemade lemon curd, delicious pastries, lovely sandwiches. Two of our party had the traditional tea,... More

I was given a gift voucher for Eastwell Manor as a leaving present from my work colleagues and decided to use it for a meal for myself and husband. The food was exceptional. The staff both in the manor and restaurant were friendly and welcoming. Service was prompt and attentive, I would highly recommend this hotel.

My sister and I brought my elderly mother here two weekends ago for the afternoon tea. She is very infirm so I was rather apprehensive, however I needn't have worried at all. The service was extremely good. It was attentive without being intrusive. The staff were friendly and professional. We were presented with our drinks first. My sister and I... More

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

We booked a table for a bank holiday Monday lunch as a surprise for my father. It was a very special surprise following a difficult year. We arrived by helicopter selecting Eastwell because I have had excellent food and service before and because of the helipad. The helicopter arrival delivered but after that it went a bit down hill.

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
