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

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

. I absolutely did not want to do this review before e-mailing the Manor House for their comments. However, it seems impossible for me to do so as the link on their website doesn't work.

Booked a table here while staying at The Manor House and it was incredible! We started with cocktails and canapés in the bar before heading into the restaurant where we ordered the tasting menu.

Had a wonderful meal here with canapes, amuse bouche and pre desserts thrown in for good measure. An absolute joy! Amazing flavours served by friendly, efficient staff. Fine dining but sensible sized portions. Beautiful room. Cant wait to go back. Loved it.
