We visited the Manor last evening 6th March with friends celebrating their wedding anniversary-and were greeted by a very warm welcome and invited to sit by the log fire whilst waiting for our meal to be prepared. Drinks were served as we waited. The food was superb and the sweet trolley wonderful..Our waiter was very efficient and friendly. Coffee once... More

Everything was perfect. The starters and main course were beautifully cooked and presented. The desserts were to die for. The service was wonderful and the total atmosphere made our anniversary celebration special.

Having left it far too long we returned to Plumber (previous visit 2009) for another winter Sunday lunch and to our delight nothing had changed. Welcoming, warm and winsome, an incredibly varied choice on all three courses, complimented by the delights of the dessert trolley choice and the reasonably priced availability of wine by the half bottle.

We recently visited Plumber Manor for Sunday lunch. First impressions always mean a lot and to be greeted by the somewhat brusque, "name ?"as we entered the building was less than welcoming. The dining room is an elegant light filled room and the tables are placed far enough apart to be able to converse without having to raise your voice... More

Have been meaning to try this restaurant ever since we moved here. Eventually found a reason and time and now wonder why we took so long. Everything from the ambiance to the coffee was outstandingly well done. Welcome, Hospitality, drinks, food, everything made this a very good celebration of our anniversary. There was a large family party going on but... More

It is always nice to return to a favourite hotel and restaurant and find that nothing has slipped or fallen in standard for five years at least. Plumber Manor is somewhere that you still put your best clothes on to go to and whilst it is not restrictive in dress code it is obvious that the standard of the food... More

A wonderful evening had by all, when my family spent the evening at Plumber Manor. A friendly welcome on our arrival. Drinks in the lounge, followed by a delicious meal, chosen from a menu with plenty of choice from a two or three course menu. Faultless service, from very polite staff. We were allowed to enjoy our meal, without being... More

Plumber Manor has been THE place to go since my parents were my age. It has unparalleled food and service, with the most amazing atmosphere. Cuisine is traditional English and French, with local produce, game and all the old favourites. There is a reason we all rave about the Beef Wellington. Best of all is the welcome you get when...

I have been coming to this house, for over thirty years. The memories we have made here, have been the very best. The warm welcome by Richard is sincere, and always amusing. The food cooked by his brother, Brian, has always been of the very highest quality. It is amazing, that over the years, they have never lost their enthusiasm.... More
