Set in fantastic well maintained grounds that are a feature in itself Nothing is too much trouble. I dine here in a group twice a month and at other times The food is always excellent and promptly and efficiently served. Special considerations are always met in the same way. I have not stayed here but people tell me the rooms... More

Booked a table for 5 to celebrate my mothers 85th birthday on 6th July 2016 in the small dining room at The Upper House, the room is very nicely decorated and set out. However the service was very poor, we had barely sat down when the waitress wanted our order, also with the table having a birthday balloon and being... More

Booked for afternoon tea here for four to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday. We all thoroughly enjoyed it - freshly cut finger sandwiches, beautiful cakes, followed by warm scones with jam and cream - tea and coffee was in plentiful supply - will visit again

I was travelling back up to Scotland from the South East, and was looking for a stop-over. I found this beautiful place, quite by chance. All I wanted to do was get into my comfies and chill out, and it was all made possible. I had a terrace off the bedroom which meant I didn't have to make myself presentable... More

Although quite local to The Upper House, we had never visited before so decided to book in advance for Afternoon Tea for our daughters birthday. We were greeted by very friendly and professional staff in beautiful surroundings, inside and out and were seated and served promptly but without feeling rushed. The food was beautiful and although it didn't seem like... More

....it's time to move on....otherwise I wouldn't have left! The building is lovely, the staff gracious and the Wedgwood Restaurant super. The grounds are tended with care and the flowers and shrubs delightful.....pastoral England at its best. I'll be back!

Fantastic restaurant and hotel. Stopped for a delicious business lunch with colleagues. Everything was fresh and tasty, great service from the staff and catered for low carb and vegetarian with ease. Fantastic setting and stunning views. Beautiful wedding going on too at the same time. All was impeccable. Highly recommended.

Lovely boutique hotel located very near to the Wedgewood Experience. Given wrong room initially and then moved to a bigger cooler room. Breakfast was very good with great selection.
