We ate here five nights in a row during our stay. Fantastic food and great service by our lovely waitress Boo. We invited my parents down for one evening for their first Thai meal and they absolutely loved it.

Decided to try the restaurant out as the reviews were pretty good. We drove to Carey's Manor but found the restaurant difficult to find in the grounds. I would suggest more signs specifically for the restaurant. Because we visited at lunch, all of the other diners were in dressing gowns as they were obviously using the Spa also. That said,... More

We had the most delicious dinner, the food was excellent, a real find if you like Tai food. The menu was very extensive, and it was hard to choose.

Given that the restaurant is an integral part of the spa with a captive audience I wasn't necessarily expecting excellent things. However, it was amongst the best Thai food I've ever eaten - I live in a large city and it was better than anything I've eaten here - and a really good experience. After I got home I looked... More

Set within the beautiful Careys Manor hotel this restaurant is special. Lovely setting and exquisite food. We ate here twice during our recent 3 night stay at Careys Manor. It is not solely for hotel guests but would advise booking.

Went here twice whilst staying at Careys Manor, once for lunch and again for dinner. Only had a sandwich for lunch but it was well made, the bread was lovely and soft and the roast beef tender and delicious. My other half had the halloumi salad which was also very tasty, if a little small. The smoothies were delicious -... More

We booked a table at the Zen Garden for our wedding anniversary meal. Having not been to this particular restaurant before, we were hopeful of the same high standards in keeping with Le Blaireau, which we frequently visit. We were not let down and had a superb experience from start to finish. The beautiful smell of exotic Thai spices greeted... More
