“Another fab afternoon tea”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

It's not just the beautiful sandwiches, scones and home made cake but the delightful, underplayed yet perfect service. The verandah was a delightful place to sit today too. And this is the third perfect visit.

“Lovely Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

We went to this place for fathers day lunch. The meals that we had were very nice. The place is lovely in side, very clean. The staff were very professional and kept coming round to see if everything was ok. The only problems that we had was the soup could have been hotter, and where we sat, was right by the kitchen door and people were walking past all the time. Apart from that it was great and would I go back, yes.

Thank you for your review. I am pleased you enjoyed your experience on Fathers day and will return. I note the comment about the Soup, Serving food hot is one of our priorities and is very rare this would be a problem However please tell us if it happens again we will quickly sort it out for you. The table you had was nearest the kitchen although we did screen it off with plants and decorative screen. As it was fathers day we were fully booked so we had to use all available tables/ space, We try to give priority to those who book first. usually we can move guests to an alternative table if the one shown is not suitable or desired. It is always worth asking even if it seems busy though. I look forward to welcoming you on your next visit. You may ask for a specific table or area when booking and we will do our best to accommodate
Thank you from Neil and all the team at the Orestone Manor
