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

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

I attended a murder mystery event at Eastwell Manor in May 2016. Due to the poor meal I was served I was offered a complimentary lunch which I have just returned from. Firstly, I had a table booked for 12.30 but due to the staff running late in setting up the tables we were not seated until 12.50. We made... More

The team always endeavours to ensure that guests' dietary requirements are met and we are, naturally, very sorry for any mistakes on our part. It is our normal practice to serve gluten free bread and rolls in a wrapper to ensure there is no risk of cross-contamination. More

We had a really good evening at Eastwell Manor for a midweek dinner with friends last week. The quality of the food was excellent (all four of us thought so) and the chef and kitchen staff must be congratulated. We chose from the set menu at £37.75 per head for 3 courses. The starters were good - I had a... More

Excellent service from the more senior staff but some of the younger staff require further training otherwise the dining experience does not match the prices being charged. Fabulous in all other ways.

Thank you, we agree some of the younger members of staff require some additional training but we do like to give young people an opportunity in their first job. More

Delicious food.... superb service! We enjoyed the pianist playing in the corner & getting dressed up formally to spend a lively evening together. Probably worth saving up for as you get what you pay for! Breakfast has according to my husband the best black pudding he has ever tasted.

Thank you. I agree, the black pudding is superb (and I enjoyed some, with two farm eggs, this morning). More
