“Great food and service”
Reviewed April 29, 2013 via mobile

We had the cellar room for a party of 11, to celebrate my wife's birthday. The food and service was as usual of the highest quality and I am already looking forward to returning in July!

“My Birthday dinner”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

We booked a table for 6 to celebrate my sons and my own birthdays. Managed to get there in spite of the snow and ice. Received a very warm welcome from the owner.
Drinks in the lounge by a lovely log fire while waiting for our order to be taken.
The menu is first class and is cooked and presented superbly.
I had a trio of seafood to start followed by beef wellington, delicious.
Plumber is one of the best restaurants in the county, run with a charming style and elegance, an experience to be enjoyed.

“Faultless dining experience”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

I had eaten at Plumber a couple of times in the past and decided to book a table to celebrate a special occasion
On arrival we were greeted by Richard who to took us to the bar/lounge area where we enjoyed a pre dinner drink and hors d'oeuvres while perusing the menu. Choices made we were shown to our table where our waiter/waitress looked after us politely and effiiciently.
A variety of starters were chosen by the guests and all were beautifully presented and tasty. This could also be said of the main courses too. Leave room for a dessert as the sweet trolly will leave you totally undecided as to what to choose and if you can't decide what to have just ask for a taster of a selection!!
There was one VERY VERY minor issue concerning the ordering of a coffee - Tim was there in a flash it was resolved. When the coffees arrived they were accompanied by beautiful homemade(?) chocolates and after dinner mints.
There is no doubt that this is the place to come if you want something special. You couldn't wish for a more friendly efficiently run establishment with superb food, the whole experience is SPOT ON. Thank you to all at Plumber for making our evening SO enjoyable.

Reviewed September 29, 2012

Thoroughly enjoyable with a lovely ambience but too pricey to make more than the rare visit. Possibly worth the price BUT not on our budget sorry.

“Lovely place, great food”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

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.
