Our dinner here with two friends was one of the best tasting we can remember! My wife had the artichoke & truffle soup to start and it was apparently divine. I started with the scallops - lightly seared, delicate, cooked to perfection! I had the venison as a main course: it was absolutely delicious, tender, wonderful sauce, exquisite taste. Everything...

My mother had a voucher for an afternoon tea. The setting and food were lovely! It was all fresh and very tasty. Service was a little slow to start but the staff were all very friendly and attentive. I did however go with my 3 month old baby. There was no baby changing facilities available. When I asked they just... More

Dear Clare, Thanks for your review, and thank you for the great suggestion. We don't have a wall with the combination of strength and space that would accommodate a fixed changing table, but we have now installed a portable changing table as you suggested. We hope to see you again soon, and please be assured your baby will now be... More

As a group of 11, we appreciate that we are often not always ideal customers for restaurants that cater well for smaller parties. What joy therefore, late last week to experience this excellent establishment where the service and attention was faultless in just about every regard and the food bordered on exquisite save for the assiette of desserts that was...

My wife had bought me a Gastro Pub voucher from Debenhams for Christmas 2015. We've had a busy year so not had chance to use it until now, but boy are we glad we waited. The voucher entitled us to a 2 course table d'hote dinner with coffee and petit fours. We upgraded to a 3 course meal paying the... More

This was a first visit to Orestone Manor and what a surprise and pleasure. We visited just for a cream team but were greeted as if we were long standing guests. The Manor is a beautiful building which the owners have managed to convert in to a first class hotel and restaurant located with fabulous views over the sea. If... More

Came here for high tea and was very impressed by the service, atmosphere, and quality. We were asked whether we had particular preferences before the freshly-made tea was brought out, and nothing seemed too much trouble. The sandwich bread was springy and soft and the lemon drizzle cake was heavenly. There were huge amounts of jam and cream with the... More

Booked the restaurant as a birthday treat for my mother-in-law's birthday and I can thoroughly recommend it! We had the 2 course set menu, which was ample for us. My husband had the squid, which he said was well cooked and not at all rubbery and the leek and potato soup was creamy and delicious. Mains included the venison steaks,... More

We enjoyed our first visit and came back the other day for lunch as a party of four for lunch. As it was a celebration we enjoyed some sparkling drinks in the lounge before going through for lunch. Our order was taken in the lounge and the whole process was very civilised and set the tone very well. The menu... More

The medium rare filet steak was cooked to perfection and melted like butter in the mouth. I choose with it peppercorn sauce which complimented the steak extremely well. The meal was one of the best I have had in a long while. The restaurant is perfect for a romantic meal and the staff are polite and attentive. The martini crab... More
