I really enjoyed my recent visit to Plumber Manor. The Manor is and elegant old building in very attractive grounds, it was a pleasure to drive up to it on a nice summer evening. The ambiance of the bar was excellent; our booking was confirmed and we were greeted by our, slightly larger than life' host. A pre dinner drink was enjoyed in lovely surroundings as we made our choices from the menu. We were shown to our table in an efficient but unhurried manner and them plied with great food and drink. The food was of a high quality but the occasion was made special by the whole package. Location, atmosphere, service, food and wine all combined to make this a great evening.

There's no doubt about it, this place is very special. Everything about it, from the reception you get, the quality of the food, the service, it is quite superb.

It is very definitely the place for special occasions, in this instance our anniversary. There is nothing I could say that hasn't already been said many times before.

We travel from Kent to Wiltshire several times a year. This is only our second visit to Plumber
Manor and the hospitality and warmth of the hosts and staff is fantastic, but even better is the
wonderful food. The wine list is extensive and very reasonable. We have a few good restaurants in Kent but this is my favourite. Book early or you may be disappointed.
Thank you for your hospitality.

The approach to Plumber Manor is in itself something special.. The tree lined driveway has fields on either side and is a gentle balance of elegance and rural living. Once the house comes into view the anticipation of a lovely evening is complete. On entering this beautiful manor house we were greeted warmly by one of the proprietors who took us into the lounge area, which had a bar at one end, large log fire to one side and period artwork on all walls. The air is one of comfort and genteel living..
Our food orders were taken in the lounge and until the table was ready we were given our drinks from the bar. Once at the table in the dining room we were again reminded why, from anywhere we have ever visited ( including mainland Europe and the U.S.) this is our all-time favorite place to eat - the service was excellent, staff impeccably courteous and attentive and the food of the highest quality. To sum it up, Plumber Manor is excellent, faultless in fact, and I highly, highly recommend a visit.
