We went to the restaurant for the first time with friends from the South and we were all impressed. Lovely seating area to wait with a drink and then into a bright restaurant for the meal. We all had something different and were very pleased...More

Dear russellandann What a bizarre review. The restaurant is painted in a pleasing light green to match all of our furniture. There is a small area of lino flooring in the orangery, but 90% of the restaurant is carpeted. Kind Regards The Manor House Hotel

We had an evening meal in the restaurant. The service was appalling. My boyfriend asked what bottled beers they had, to be told they only had Speckled Hen, but then she came back and said they have ran out and only have Black Sheep. She...More

i have read most of the comments now and to be honest there is one pub we saw but you know what we stayed the full 2 days enjoyed every minute of the whole experience to me the restaurant has it covered the meals may look expensive on paper but lets step back and think a little an average meal with quality for 2 is average £50-60 pounds so that is an average but at the manor its not much more but top quality food with staff taking care of you in every possible way no one watching as if to say hurry up i need that table me personally disagree with some of the comments everyone is allowed an opinion so i would like to share mine if staying at such a nice historic place with food i would say fine dining quality at low prices in my book great its not a pub lunch its a real honor to eat there the king prawn starter was superb and the staff ordered my steak in especially and done to perfection i would not hesitate in taking the children for lunch my son who is ten has even done his homework on the manor house top staff from reception to the whole building even the cleaning staff and as i say the kitchen ,chef and service is the best i have had and i have been around the world and back so just to finish my story if anyone has any questions that is most of pricing in this world in our day quality not penny saving well that is my motto but i know next time we stay my menu is already done and wont be going out the grounds that is my answer hope you all book and have a great meal trust me you wont be disappointed there is no dress code but at least make an effort i felt a bit out of place with tattoo showing but no one battered an eye lid we spoke to people in other tables from locals special occasion to backpackers heading to lakes to people from america so for us its an ideal retreat switch your phone off and relax if its pleasure sorry there is gluten free and dogs are allowed in stables bar patio area i think that is the questions answered any other contact the hotel direct 01388834834

A charming and unmistakably English manor house that dates back to the 12th century, The Manor House Hotel is home to a team who believe that warm hospitality is as strong a British tradition as the luscious landscaped gardens the building stands in. There are rumours of ghosts haunting the halls, but nothing untowardly shocking on the menu. Indeed, the Manor House Hotel���s restaurant continues the British theme, offering traditional and exotic but always locally sourced British cuisine to the highest standards and most artistic presentation, whilst the adjacent brassiere maintains a similar lofty standard in a more relaxed setting.
