Inspiring Food Presentation (& foie gras!)

Our waiter, David, was very knowledgeable about food and wine and carried a great conversation with my date about luxury cars.

The last time I was at The Manor for their buffet, was 4 years ago. My husband I went the other night for my birthday. I was concerned that we would be disappointed because the venue is old and stale. We were NOT disappointed and they 'still got it'. They have done some renovations, they have new dinnerware and our... More

We booked a table for 4 on a Saturday night in February. The Manor is a beautiful old style mansion. We were told there is 2 seatings 6 to 8 or 8 to 10. We picked the 6 to 8 PM seating. We were also told that they prefer men to wear Jackets. That doesn't mean you have to wear... More

I'll start off by saying that this is an absolutely gorgeous venue and it is certainly picturesque enough for weddings or anything special event (I can easily see why it's popular). I came here for a business dinner back in November and I was definitely impressed; I had driven by here quite a few times, but I never knew how... More

My husband and I threw a big Sunday night wedding - both the ceremony and reception - for our son and daughter-in-law. The Manor was on top of every detail with courteous and knowledgeable help. Our event was beautiful from start to finish.

Attended a wedding reception there in early January. Had modest expectations taking into account the problems associated with maintaining high standards when catering for 180 people at one sitting but was pleasantly surprised. The first and most impressive serving was the appetisers, which were presented buffet-style near the open bar for cocktails. These included fresh oysters, jumbo shrimp and smoked... More

We got married in 2012 and we still look back at the wonderful service and great food we received. We worked with Roman who was nothing but kind and accommodating to us. The menu was accommodated to our needs and preferences. Staff was eager to help us throughout the planning process as well as the big day. The food was... More

From the very poor service from out French waiter,,to the missing, or undercooked, or over cooked, of low food quality..the experience ruined our Christmay Day Diner....I noticed another table get up and leave.....The Manor had always pleased us,,,perhaps it was the Holiday...however will be a long long time before we return...
