“Medieval Banquet”
Reviewed November 10, 2013

What a beautiful place, stunning and magnificent. The setting for the medieval banquet is just perfect.... made all the more memorable by the staff and entertainers who work tirelessly throughout the night to make the night special. A big 'shout out to' Matt our Medieval server who had the patience of a saint. The show is superbly funny. A full evening of entertainment and laughter and all for £39.00... bargain.
However our night and a majority of others was spoilt by one individual who continuously interrupted the show from start to finish and the security failed in managing the situation, which was a huge disappointment. It was left to a member of the audience to try and speak to the party who was causing the disturbance who were then told they should have complained to the management instead.... the management clearly new of the situation as the security had been deployed and could not contain the idiot who spoilt it for all ....FAIL. A lot of people paid with there well earned money to be entertained by professionals and for the night to disrupted on the level that it was is disappointing. Enough of that rant... I suppose there will 'always be one' That said, this would not stop us returning as it truly is a fun evening.

“Buy a gift treat for Mother in law”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

What a treat, lovely surroundings, imposing approach to a beautiful building, history around every corner. Seated for afternoon tea in the Garden Bar. Treated very well by the staff. Food excellent and filling. Could not recommend this more as a treat.

“What a fabulous setting”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

with pulpit, altar gates, fabulous furniture, it really is quite an exquisite place to take friends for afternoon tea. There seems to be a good lot of attention to detail about the furnishings, pity I could not say the same about the service. There were 12 of us, we had 3 lots of teas catering for 3 each, ie enough for 9 people, at first, so some of us were reticent about eating much, they did bring us another one, we had only 2 lots of tiny pots of jam and cream for the scones between us, but when asked did bring another one, the insides of the scones were, I have to say, delicious. And if you like a good cup of tea, take extra tea bags with you. It was quite busy but there seemed to be ample staff. Good job we were with friends and had a such a good time.

“An enchanting evening”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

Coombe Abbey Garden Bar and Restaurant is a wonderful place to dine. We went as a family to the restaurant and were welcomed by an efficient team of staff who made our evening relaxed and enjoyable. The restaurant manager was very kind to us and our waiter Nick was very friendly. We couldn't recommend this enough as a destination for a lovely night out, and the location is incredible.

“Wonderful food, wonderful staff.”
Reviewed October 19, 2013 via mobile

We stayed overnight at Coombe Abbey as a 30th wedding anniversary gift from our children and their partners, although we have been previously, and were really looking forward to the experience. We were made very welcome from the start, and this standard of friendliness continued throughout our stay with all of the staff we came across. The bedroom was lovely, although a little warm during the night, and I personally love the subtle, muted lighting as it adds to the atmosphere. We ate in the Garden Room Restaurant, having booked prior to arrival. The food was wonderful, as were the staff: friendly and attentive without being intrusive. Breakfast consisted of a wide variety of choices, including traditional and continental, after which we made our way home feeling very relaxed and pampered. Thank you to everyone at Coombe Abbey for another lovely visit.
