Review of The Astor Grill

The Astor Grill
Ranked #9 of 13 Restaurants in Taplow
Description: Located in the charming old stable block, which once housed Lord Astor’s most prized fillies. Adopting an equestrian theme in its décor, The Astor Grill is full of character offering a simple and informal approach to dining at Cliveden. The menu is overseen by our Executive Chef and it focusses on a mixture of classic American and British dishes, many reminiscent of Cliveden’s diverse owners and residents. The name – The Astor Grill – recalls the Astor family, who owned the house from the early 1900s. William Waldorf Astor, America’s richest citizen, then gave the house to his son and daughter in-law, Nancy Astor, in 1906, and Cliveden became a vibrant social hub for guests as diverse as Charlie Chaplin, George Bernard Shaw and Winston Churchill.

Ate out with family on last Friday evening in August in the Aston grill on the Cliveden estate. Enjoyed wandering around the grounds beforehand.
Restaurant was quiet as ate before 7pm, Ate indoors, service was attentive but relaxed. Loved my goat salad starter,served with pomegranate and walnuts. Although my main of crab and chilli fettuccine was a bit dry for my tastes. All had 3 courses and drinks. Loved the ambience although price as you would expect was high £300 for the four of us, but glad we enjoyed the experience.

Came here on a monday evening and it was quite but that was fine with us.

Its set just of the main building and on a nice day you can sit outside here.

Service was good and friendly , food was good , we will come back again.

If you have been for a walk round the grounds treat yourself to a meal here and dont worry about the cost as it will not be cheap but it is worth it.

Visited today for my father’s birthday with family. Staff were amazing - we were very well looked after by them, they even went to the trouble of helping us out with a birthday cake we had bought for the occasion! Great food and fantastic ambiance - will definitely go back. Thanks very much!

We had a lovely lunch at the Astor Grill. We had tomato soup and roast chicken cobbs salad. It is really nice the interior of the grill. On a hot summer’s day, it is better to stay indoors rather than going out to the garden. The tomato soup was spot on for temperature and taste. My wife had an excellent salmon Capraccio for starter.
