Having been born in the village and lived away for some considerable years but a person who has visited the village for the last 39 years to visit family I have seen the Northover Manor in good times and bad. Tonight we tried to book a meal in the restaurant for 7.30 pm but told 8 pm due to a... More

Thank you for a truly fantastic evening last night, We all had an amazing time. The comedy acts were hilarious, haven't laughed so much in ages. Food and staff were all excellent as always. We have eaten at Northover on many occasions and are always delighted with the quality of food, last night was no different. Thank you

My wife and I have been here a few times now, and every visit never fails in its standards. Impeccable service and food that would rival any Michelin starred restaurant, at not Michelin starred prices. I would highly recommend the Northover manor. Mr Mark Haddigan and his brigade do an outstanding job.

We were a party of 20 plus originally 18 but extras at a very, very late notice BUT the Chef coped very, very well no disappointments from anyone, excellent choice and all had more than enough so satisfy their needs.

After a successful meal as one of a group of 22, I returned with my husband. We were not disappointed. Friendly unintrusive staff, warm cosy dining room and delicious food, plus somewhere to sit with coffee after our meal. We will return again soon. Excellent value for money.

Having stayed at Northover on a previous occasion, I had expected better. We arrived mid afternoon and parked in the crowded car park (busy I believe with lunch trade) noticing broken wine glasses which were obviously from an earlier function as there was still evidence of red wine in them. This, whilst being quite obvious to us had not been... More

We were a nightmare group booked in for a whole family meal - babies, children, parents and grandparents all for an evening meal to celebrate a birthday and we arrived later than we said originally. Could have been a disaster! but no, thanks to everyone working at the Northover Manor. Our table was for us exclusively all evening so no... More

I sometimes find it difficult to order what's not on the menu. Tonight the Chef exceled himself by allowing me a couple of fried eggs on top of my steak, in preference to the normal sauces. What came before me can only be described as a mouth watering culinary triumph. The egg yolks trickling over the steak, that was cooked... More

This small restaurant attached to an Inn is where I first had risotto 10 years ago. I've been obsessed ever since. Last week I was able to return and the food is as magnificent as I remember. As it is small, you'll need a reservation. They're often so busy they'll take your order while you wait at the bar so... More

Celebrating Hubbys 80th birthday with family and friends, what a lovely evening , staff so attentive and friendly, the food was out of this world, beautifully presented, lovely atmosphere and surroundings. Whether it is for a special occasion or not you will never be dissappointed with this place. Can't wait to go back
