The review by the guy with the boisterous family and the follow up reviews made me want to go see for myself. Fantastic food, great environment, can't fault the place. Plenty of space really nicely laid out. At least three staff behind the bar on hand every time I looked. This place should be far higher up the ratings than... More

I used to come here years ago, but hadn't visited in a long time after a decline in standards. I heard there were new proprietors and that things had changed dramatically for the better.... so decided to give it a go. I was not disappointed! On entering, I could see that the place has been given a complete makeover. It... More

I was at Chelston Manor on the Sunday that Jonny L was in with his family and his group of 'family' were clearly out of control, had too much to drink and the landlord, who had been decorating, asked them politely to please ask the children to quieten down, I could see people leaving, but the group became aggressive and...

If a relaxing Sunday lunch with your family is what you're seeking then please look elsewhere. After eating our lunch with our friends and children (party of 7) the owner dressed in a paint stained tracksuit stinking of alcohol asked us to leave and escorted us off the premises because our 3 children who were sat on the floor colouring...

Wow, what a case of over reaction and out and out fiction. I thought I must be a character from a Rohl Dahl book and you being Rohl Dahl. To set a few things straight - Yes I was in trackies and working gear, I was operating a chainsaw - as I'm sure your aware everyone does whilst half drunk.... More

I went in early December for a Sunday roast and found the meal excellent and staff and service was fantastic despite it being very busy. The Armstrong family and staff work tirelessly to ensure your stay is as you'd expect. Thank You to you and your staff

I brought my brother and his family here over the Christmas break. We hadn't booked, and really wanted to be near the fire. The staff remembered this, and when a table was free, moved us. I've eaten here a lot, so was confident all our meals from the children's whole tail scampi to our lasagne, pulled pork and burger would... More
