“Food and atmosphere great - Service surly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

We eat at the restaurant with friends on Saturday evening - we had been here several times before and always had a very positive experience. The food was excellent - though the portions were far too big and we did leave large amounts on our plates. however, on our arrival the staff member behind the bar was unfriendly and brusk - very disappointing for an establishment such as this -

“Unbelievably salty”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

Went on a business lunch ordered the calf liver bacon and mash when it arrived it was the most saltiest dish I have ever had, sent it back chef at first was a little disbelieving but once he tried it agreed and was knocked off the bill.

“wedding venue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

Very cool, quirky place with great food,a pitch and putt golf hole and its own yeti. The Decor and ambience was brilliant and the location is great. The only slight criticism was that the whisky was a little bit expensive but everything else was so good that I will let them off.

“One of the best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

We are lucky to live in an area with a plethora of wonderful dining establishments and this is one of my favourites. the service and food and atmosphere are excellent. whether it is a cosy dinner for two or a family Sunday lunch this place excels. Highly recommended.

“Glad I read that Aeroplane in flight magazine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

Picked up the Jet 2 in flight magazine on a golf trip and read all about the Crab and decided to try it with my wife staying in the Manor.Sheer class and this was to be followed up when we visited the restuarant which was a pleasant walk through the gardens .Nice bar area with character typical of a premices of this age but we were lead into the restaurant where relaxing music played in a room full of atmosphere and people seemingly enjoying the experience. Everyththing that followed was pure indulgence, excellent food, excellent service and a great time enjoyed by us both.We will visit again soon .
