My words cannot describe adequately just how amzing this place is. We had our wedding here on a beautiful March day....the weather was very kind to us and so at the last minute John agreed for us to get married in the garden area.....it made our day.
The food was absolutley incredible and John and his team looked after us and our guests in his usual way....ensured it was a perfect meal.
I believe they do perhaps a wedding a month, we were so lucky to get the venue only booking about 2 months in advance, the right amount of room for our party of 42, and something for everyone.
It was a fun evening with John, Charlie and the staff joining in......Up until 5am, danced until we could dance no more.
ALL our guests loved the quirkiness and the unusual rooms. We had the Wellington suite and its secret door ensured everyone had to have a look...we used all the rooms and there was not one complaint just praise.
Thanks so much John and team for the best wedding, it was laid back yet organised, fun yet class and we would not have changed a thing.
Rachel and Peter Ford.

After reading the reviews prior to visting Frogg Manor for dinner I was both intrigued and excited. Despite all of the bad reviews in a number of areas the positive throughout was how good the food was. The food was average with the exception of the starter which was pretty impressive. The interior of this place is quirky to say the least and I did feel comfortable however I can only say that certain areas are rather in need of an update and despite being told how fab the bedrooms are I'd not have felt comfortable knowing that I was going to sleep in this place. When you drive into the grounds the hotel looks tired and in need of some good old TLC. Apart from the starter and some interesting Froggs the best thing about this place is the resident pooch, think her name was Bubbles, who was adorable. Not a place I'd return too however you have to try it as it might just be for you!

Just had the pleasure of spending the night at Frogg Manor. Stayed in The Bronte Room, so warm and inviting. Bedding so luxurious we felt like the lord and lady of the manor. Extremely clean and well looked after. Food was out of this world and it is such a difference to have people that talk to you(Hi Jo) after all we are all humans!! At a time when people are feeling apprehensive about spending it is nice to know that places with real warmth and character still exist. Cannot wait to return. Much love to you all John, Charlie, Bubbles Jo Jo and Lisa. See you soon

I dined in Frogg manor along with my partner for our anniversary, using a hi life diners card. On arrival we were greeted with....'oh the low lives' as another reviewer also experienced, in my opinion we still paid over £100 for a meal for two so if the manager looks down on ‘hi life’ users then why accept the card in the first place? The decor is tacky and old. the whole place was dirty and looked as if the carpets and furniture hadn’t been cleaned for years. there was also lots of debris outside of the conservatory...old children’s toys, broken chairs etc also an unused rusty ripped trampoline in full view. The one and only plus of this experience was the food....it was surprisingly lovely and you could not fault it. I would recommend this place as a restaurant if you go with a low expectations of the service you will receive.

This is the third time my partner and I have stayed at this fabulous hotel. John and Charlie make this wonderful place what it is today. Together with its amazing themed rooms crammed with ecclectic tat (sorry John!), wonderful food and a truly unique atmosphere, this hotel with attitude is one of the best you will find.

Keep up the good work...we love you Frogg Manor! xx

Ariived to a lovely welcome, bad news room booked wasnt available, good news upgraded to suite at no extra cost, took advantage of the hotel winter deals 50%
off room price as long as £100 spent in Restaurant, dinner around £40 each so couple of bottles of wine soon accomplished.
showed to our room by John nothing was too much trouble, dinner arranged for 8.00pm.
Menu quite extensive and having been before I knew the food would not let us down, Mr Sykes did us very proud, lots of flavours, not too much just the right amounts we had an absolutely lovely time. The suite was clean and you wanted for nothing.
If I ever wanted to live anywhere else other than my home then this would be it, can't wait to go back for my 50th in February.

If you have no sense of humour, don't like good food and don't like something a bit different then don't go here. Yes, it is different and yes, it maybe is not the bland, prepacked plastic style of so many other hotels but this hotel is for the more brave and intelligent guest. The owner has firmly put his mark on Frogg Manor and he should be applauded for it! If you want to be a number go elsewhere. If you want a memorable experince - for all the right reasons then this is the place for you. Excellent food, very different staff and rooms - we'll be back! Thanks for a great night Mr.Frogg!
