Service levels have dropped since the venue has been acquired by Champneys recently. The bar service pre lunch was very poor and being busy is no excuse when you are paying £100 for lunch for two with wine. The food was good but could have been better. My scallop starter was excellent but my wife found her parfait rather heavy... More

We had a Groupon voucher for lunch and booked for 12:15am. On arrival we were told the restaurant wasn't ready (although we could have booked from 12 noon onwards) but we could go to the bar for a drink. As we don't drink we waited by a lovely log fire in reception for 15 minutes after which we were politely... More

We booked to take some friends for a meal who hadn't been to Eastwell before last weekend. As regular visitors we knew that there had been a lot of changes with new staff too. Any fears we had were immediately dissolved as soon as we walked through the front door! We had a lovely warm greeting from the reception team,... More

went here for Sunday lunch to celebrate an anniversary with my son and husband. When I phoned to make the reservation I was told that I could only make a reservation for 2.30. arrived early so had a drink in the bar. I fail to see how you can justify charging the outrageous sum of £7 for a tomato juice... More

Not too much of a selection 4 starters and 4 main meals but i have to say any of the choices we would have been more than happy with, the quality of the food and presentation was of a very high standerd. Very difficult to find fault, had a wonderfull stay.

I went with my partner for afternoon tea for my birthday. When you first arrive at the manor it looks very lovely with excellent views however, walking up to the manor it is very unwelcoming, as there were no signs for the reception and the main door was closed and we had never been here before, but we did know...

We had been given an afternoon tea voucher for Eastwell Manor. We booked lunch instead - in fact the extra was not too much. The cooking has become more traditional. Some years ago it was real nouvelle cuisine with minute portions. Today we both had poached salmon for starters, lamb shank (and a good sized shank) for main courser and... More

Had Christmas Lunch at Eastwell with my partners- about 15 of us in all. The wine service was poor-had we ordered? Yes! Starters very minimal. Main courses very average. All agreed that the parsnips were too chewy and needed extra cooking. I ordered extra gravy , but it never arrived. Had a wait of about 30 minutes between the main... More

Excellent ambience service and food. Mainly used by people using the leisure facilities at the Hotel as members or staying at hotel. Recently taken over by Champneys who run other spa locations and whole location of hotel,main restaurant, and pavilion to be improved over coming months.

This experience was an absolute disaster and not the 2AA rossette service and food we were expecting. on arrival we got told that the tasting menu was unavailable despite being advertised n their website. We booked a table at 8pm and got told by the restaurant manager that we would have to wait even though the restaurant was not busy... More
