A family Sunday Lunch with the family was enjoyed in a relaxed atmosphere. Both the food and the service were of the highest quality. The menu included a delicious roast but also had good options for the vegetarians, all for a reasonable price. I have read some of the bad reviews that have been posted and it is hard to... More

Positives - clean restaurant, good atmosphere and most of the food was really good, however the service needs a bit of work I feel. Ordering drinks - nightmare as not enough staff working at the bar. Paying the bill - even bigger nightmare. Took over 20 mins to pay the bill and one member of staff was very unhelpful to... More

All the staff we friendly, warm and welcoming, and it was a lovely chilled out atmousphere.

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.

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
