Unfortunately the restaurant was closed (Sunday evening), but we still enjoyed our stay. The room was comfortable with a good ensuite with a full bath (important for us). Friendly and helpful proprietor. Excellent breakfast.

We went there for a function and it is a beautiful venue in the new 'barn' The walls have a film star theme which flows through the spotless toilets but that is the best bit. We tried to get a drink in the bar attached to the venue room but no beer, Tetleys tap empty so I asked and barmaid... More

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

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.

Thank matthew g
