“Birthday celebration”
Reviewed June 7, 2014 via mobile

We recently had a meal in this restaurant whilst spending the weekend in the hotel for my birthday. This was the second visit to the restaurant and this time we opted for the 3 course menu rather than the tasting menu. I had scallops as a starter and pollock for the main and 'lemon' for dessert.
The whole meal and service was excellent, as you would expect for a restaurant of this standard. We were pleased that there was a pianist playing which added to the ambience. Last time we felt it was too quiet without any music.
We also had two breakfasts in the restaurant, both of which were excellent.

“A small well chosen range of dishes”
Reviewed May 16, 2014

The service was excellent as elsewhere in the hotel. Vegetarian menu in addition to omnivorous menu. My particular delight was the Cornish turbot and the chocolate pud....to die for!

“Much better”
Reviewed May 15, 2014

Very enjoyable experience, back to its old form, the last time we went the bar staff just did not have it together, it shouldn't have been allowed to drop to that standard for such an exclusive location. But I am glad to say our evening was perfect and very happy to recommend it again. Will certainly be going back again soon.

“Really disappointing”
Reviewed May 11, 2014

My husband and I went for an evening at the Manor house restaurant last night with two friends for a really special treat and unfortunately we came away feeling extremely disappointed. We absolutely expected for it to be a fairly pricey evening but also that we would be receiving the service to match the price.
Service very poor. We were finally taken through to the restaurant after approx an hour in a small lounge and then continued to wait for an extremely long time for our main course. We had all decided to go straight for main courses as it was fairly late to eat anyway but we waited and waited. Finally after being served an amuse bouche, two of our meals were placed on the table. We then continued to wait for another five minutes for the other two meals to come out and then asked the waiter if our remaining meals would be coming out as the served meals were getting colder and colder. Two minutes later the two served meals were taken away again! Our friend commented to the waiter that the service was very poor. The duty manager (we presume) then came over to the table to tell us that the reason there was such a delay on our food was that people usually order a starter which gives the chef time to cook the main courses but because we had not opted for this, there was a delay on the main course! After waited a further fifteen minutes all four meals were finally brought out. No problem with the quality of food as it was extremely good but the service was just terrible, except for our waiter, Marco who was very polite. It was the duty manager who was just extremely arrogant and unhelpful in his attitude. Having booked our table for 8.30pm and just having two courses, we were eating our desserts just before 11pm!
Such a shame as this was supposed to be a lovely treat but turned out to be a disappointing evening. The service charge was deducted from our bill by the duty manager but there was no apology at all from him for the service we had received.
All in all, not what we would expect from such a highly thought of restaurant and wouldn't think we will return any time soon.
