The place has the lovely feel of a new adventure just beginning - all very exciting. Our 5 course taster menu was superb, really excellent cooking & we would love to come & feast again. The restaurant manager was lovely - very welcoming & knowledgeable and made time to talk to us about future plans and recipes. Reception was just as it should be too, very welcoming & friendly.
Our breakfast was also very good - no complaints here except having to choose either the full English or the lovely smoked salmon. I'm guessing the bread was homemade, it was very tasty toasted. Our waitress was smiley & helpful. Well done Team, keep up the good work, we loved our stay - thank you.

Mentioned in the Domesday book as being part of the Abbess of Glastonbury's estate, the Manor house was originally build in Queen Ann Style before being upgraded in the 17th century to Bath stone.

Nine bee hives provide the hotel honey and rare breed pigs live on the grounds. Kathy Lette (writer and author) stayed at The Old Manor and wrote an article for the Express where she said: 'The bedrooms, with their four poster beds and wide wooden roof beams, are so Jane Austen-esque I kept expecting Mr Darcy to get down on bended knee' The Moonraker oozes old world charm and is a relaxed cotsworld escape with some of the UK's top attractions on its doorstep. ... more less
