You'll love everything about this place and, although it's quite a lot of money, it's worth every penny. Excellence is priceless and this is excellence and then some!

I ate at Bybrook twice in late September, on consecutive nights. The first night started with a chicken liver parfait and fig chutney, followed by foie gras and lamb; the second night was scallops with celeriac puree, followed by halibut with cockles and mussels. Both nights the helpful sommelier found good wines by the glass; both nights the "dessert" was... More

Stayed at hotel for a birthday treat weekend and had the seven course tasting menu with paired wines as part of it. Got off to rocky start by serving me something that I'd indicated I was allergic to but then the imaginative food and sometimes surprising wine pairings made up for it. Only downside, the men in our party were... More

Recently visited for a business dinner with some work colleagues Food as expected was superb in both presentation and taste. Hotel ground and surroundings exceptionally beautiful. Only comment was I felt a little uncomfortable at times during the meal, maybe because im a Rhondda valley boy at heart and don't enjoy all the fuss and pomp that Michelin star restaurants... More

Dined here as part of a special offer while staying at the Castle Inn and had a brilliant meal. We had a 3 course meal from the a la carte selections but once you added in the Canapés, Amuse Bouche, Pre-dessert and Petit Fours it ends up being a 7 course meal. Each course was delicate with a depth of... More

The restaurant was excellent and lived up to its Michelin Star. The food was exquisite. I had scallops to start both nights and would have like to see more meat options for starters. My husband had the crab first night and scallops the second. I had beef and venison and my husband had venison and lamb. All were wonderful. The... More

Enjoyed a delicious late summer lamb dinner, perfect from amuse bouches (there were several) to rich, savory cheeses. Wines are well selected, with some surprising values on the rather expensive list. The only criticism I have is of the room itself. In an otherwise richly decorated hotel, it was surprisingly drab, reminiscent of an events hall at a 1970s church.... More

Dear Phineas55, Thank you for your kind words and feedback, I'm happy to read that you enjoyed the food and service so much. We have very recently changed to the wooden tables and we are perhaps yet to get the table setting and decoration just right - we are considering placemats and other options to give the tables a different...

A Michelin star brings with it the expectation of universally high standards in every category, and also allows us the right to be picky when things are slightly off balance. The food here is (as it should be) superb in both quality and presentation, but the service is simply too fast. Unforgivably so. The 7 course tasting menu was so... More

Dear FussyBvggerBrit, Thank you for taking the time to share a balanced review of The Bybrook. I am delighted to read that you enjoyed the food so much, but of course rather disappointed that our pacing of your meal did not match your expectations.

We stayed at the Manor Hotel for our 30th wedding anniversary (see separate review) and were really looking forward to a special meal on the big day. How disappointed we were. We chose the a la carte rather than the tasting menu. Portions were small such as just 2 scallops cut in half as a starter. The "main" course was... More

We went here for dinner to celebrate my wife's birthday. What a fantastic Place ! From the drive up from the village to walking into the bar it is truly magical. Staff are fab, attentive, informed and helpful. From pre dinner drinks in the bar, and then being taken through to the dinning room everything is managed just so. Food... More

Dear farleysmalone, Thanks so much for such a complimentary review of The Bybrook. I'm pleased to hear that the team's hard work shone through, and that we could help you celebrate your birthday.
