“Heaven in Arden”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

We have just had an utterly superb meal in Peel's at Hampton Manor. Everything about the setting, the dining room, the bar and the service was Delightful. Seamus the sommelier was both knowledgable and so helpful without being snooty and gave excellent advice on food and wine pairings. The restaurant was busy but had a lovely buzz to it, the staff were attentive but not overbearing and timings of food arrival was just spot on, neither too soon nor too late between courses. Now to the food - it was just spectacular - seasonal, beautifully conceived and exquisitely executed to captivate all of the senses delivering exceptional quality at a very reasonable £45 for 3 courses. All told the bill was £160 for 2 of us and as this was one of the best meals I have ever eaten I was very pleasantly surprised. My only gripe was the coffee. The decaf espresso was just not up to the standard of a restaurant surely within touching distance of a Michelin Star. However, that is so easily remedied and I would recommend this place to anyone, it is just stunning.

“A bit Snooty”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

lovely surroundings but staff and atmosphere is a little bit snooty and I felt I was being judged. Probably will not go back.

James H, Owner at Peel's Restaurant, responded to this review, January 2, 2014
Hello....I'm so sorry to hear you felt that way. As a family business with strong values this kind of feedback is both really helpful whilst also very sad to hear. We will be reflecting on this as a team and doing everything we can to ensure our guests feel at home with us. Peel's is led by a young, dynamic team and that comes with energy, creativity and passion and perhaps that can be misinterpreted sometimes. I know that they would all be gutted to think they had come across that way.

We hope one day that you will come back and that we can deliver a much warmer experience for you.

Many thanks

“"Excellent Lunch"”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

Having been to Peel's for dinner and afternoon tea in the last two months we then decided to eat with friends for lunch (£40.00 Plus 10% SC) this month.
We had the following to eat: Starters......Curried Crab (Brown crab mayonaisse,compressed mango and caraway crackers)...Foi Gras and blackberry (Foi Gras mousse,texture of blackberry and poached apple).....Cornish Mackerel (Smoked parfait,avocado puree,picked mouli,soy & sesame).
For main courses.....Monkfish (celeriac textures and Ibericho ham)...Scottish Venison (goat curd,venison kofta,iceberg lettuce and aubergine puree)....Stone Bass (Almond gnochi,vanilla puree,white crab,sea aster).

Followed for dessert....Chocolate and Pistachio (chocolate cremeux, pistachio textures )....Blueberries (maple ice cream,pecans,soft meringue and sorrel).....Earl Grey Mousse (granola,orange and apricot)

Their home made bread rolls and Amuse Bouche were as usual excellent.
The service again was polite and helpful.
Would recommend to family and friends
