This is well placed in the main street of the historic small town of Alford. whilst looking at houses . we had time for lunch at this Manor House, The Ploughman's Lunch was excellent with wholemeal bread. Well presented & reasonably quick. It has a small museum at the back near to the free carpark

We dropped into the Manor House, whilst it was hosting the Craft Fair. There were loads of different stalls offering local food produce and also crafts, including wood turning. It was all a very British affair and would certainly recommend going to and engrossing yourself in a afternoon tea.

We had a cup of tea and delicious home made cake inside the Manor House, however our real destination was the museum (shed) behind the house which costs £1 each to enter. Stuffed full to the rafters with rural tools and memorabilia from my dad's childhood and early working life he was delighted. An equally venerable volunteer guide (83 yrs... More

We came to the Manor House for my fathers funeral tea. Lovely selection of sandwiches, many different types of home made cakes ,made by volunteers. Everything was beautifully served and presented. Tea and coffee served with it. Couldn't fault it- thank you.

Run by volunteers but I been to less well presented commercial houses. Tremendous history in itself there are always exhibitions on. Nice tea room, garden and there is a small museum round the back.

We regularly use this venue for lunch. Although the side dishes are very small (eg coleslaw) the main portions are OK and quality good. The menu is relatively limited but both service and quality of cooked food fine. We know all the eateries in Alford very well and The Manor House is the very best location for eating outside (at...

We have Visited a couple of times after stumbling upon it when travelling through Alford. The tea rooms are lovely and the staff dedicated to the cause, as they are volunteers. The craft fairs in May and August are fabulous and well worth a visit.
