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

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. EVEN TOLD BY DRIVER THAT IT WAS £1 EACH FOR THE TRANSFER.( Joke gone wrong) We where sat in the reception area. Every time... 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

Ate here on Saturday lunchtime with my husband as a late Christmas treat. It was £22.50 for 2 courses or £28.50 for 3 , so not cheap but not a rip-off and worth every penny. I had pork fillet in pancetta and husband had slow cooked Kentish beef. Both dishes beautifully presented and succulent, melt in the mouth texture. Although... More

Thank you, the Times newspaper voted us 5th most romantic restaurant in the UK and our resident pianist is great on the grand piano every lunch and dinner. We also have musical afternoon teas on the last Friday of the month when we give talented young, local musicians an opportunity to play in addition to our resident pianist. More

After a couple of rather lacklustre lunches at Eastwell before and after Christmas we reluctantly adhered to our booking at Eastwell today to celebrate my birthday. We were so glad we did! Eastwell is BACK! We had a fabulous meal. The food was hot and excellent quality. The dessert, lemon cheesecake and blackberry sorbet was out of this world. The... More

We stayed at Christmas, and considering the high volume of orders, the food was first class.The staff were polite and courteous, and the wine list is very impressive.

First ate in the restaurant as a gift from family for my anniversary. Have been twice since and had brilliant experiences on all 3 occasions. The menu changed a little every time I visited and was so good it was difficult to choose. Could not fault anything and would highly recommend this for a special occasion. The setting is beautiful...
