Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Sadly, not the menu it was. The new boring simplified menu is a shadow of its former self. Just ordinary unexciting pub food menu, some only adequately cooked, but totally lacking the interesting dishes of previous visits.only one bitter available. I had my doubts about...the trend when I went there about three months ago, but now confirmed by my recent visit this week. Another good eating house has gone, I suspect, for good. Imagination is required if I and my friends, who think likewise, are to go there again.More

We have visited The Manor many times before and I do find it very frustrating. On some visits the food has been excellent other as per this review absolutely awful! This occasion was a Sunday lunch to tie in with a child's birthday. We booked...via Opentable. When arriving at the restaurant we were the only customers which seemed at the time odd. We ordered the Sunday lunch menu, a mix of Beef, Roast Chicken and Belly Pork plus some starters. Couldn't order any bread to go with the meal though as they had run out.. yes correct run out of bread! The roast chicken and pork were supposed to come with stuffing, but they had run out of this too! Each was replaced with an extra Yorkshire pudding, they themselves however weren't brilliant. The port was very very fatty, I know this is how belly pork can be, but this was poor quality at best, for the price we anyone would expect better. The veg was over cooked and it was explained the chef had just left the previous day and a replacement was on his way up from Devon , could have been Cornwall but either way he wasn't there yet, and it showed!! I honestly feel if we had phoned directly to book, we would have been turned away, again maybe that's why we were the only party there as that wasn't an option when booked by Opentable. Needles to say for the cost of the food (which isn't cheap eats territory in the slightest) and the fact some items weren't even available and the fact they still try and sneak in the service charge which to my mind is very underhanded this gets a poor review. I suspect that I'll not be missed but it's unlikely we will eat here again which is a shame as it's been great in the past and its very close to where we live. If The Manor are listening at all then be the Pub you used to be when the beer was good and looked after and the Restaurant used to serve good food at a reasonable price for the quality.More

Book a meal for our first night in Worcester shire having read the reviews Excellent staff, friendly greeting and great service. A chef who can cook a steak. The only thing stopping a five star review is when hand cut chips are on the menu...I expect them to be exactly that, hand cut and from fresh potatoes, mine were frozen chips which you can spot from a mile away. Also a service charge was added to the bill, it should be my decision if I want to leave a tip, in this case I didn't question it due to the service, however it would appear that you are hoping that customers will be too embarrassed to mention it.More

We have eaten at The Manor many times over the years and always found it to be very good hence we return fairly regularly. However it is now under new management and things have gone downhill. Out of 6 Sunday lunches the 2 chicken lunches...were served 5 mins later than the other meals and the 2 pork lunches were very poor quality. I appreciate belly pork can and will have fat but at least 70% fat is very poor quality. For £20 you would rightly expect better quality. The beef dishes were excellent though very minimal - £22 for 2 small slices of beef. Desert similarly was minimal for the £8.50 price paid. It seems the new management are increasing prices at the same time as cutting quality and quantity. We did raise the pork issue with 2 out of the 3 waiters that came and went but nothing was done about it. So we debated and decided to take the automatic service charge off the bill. If you're going to charge a premium then the product and service quality has to back it up and on both these points The Manor is sadly lacking. The staff are generally very friendly though the young man milling around is not necessarily best suited to front of house service.... I wouldn't say avoid - I would say that there are far better options in the area so we will not return until things improve.More

Loved it. Took the dog, sat in the garden under an umbrella looking at the view. Sandwiches are ciabatta rolls. Chicken with bacon was delicious, beef with mustard mayo was stand out. Friendly and attentive service - they even brought our drinks out to us...in the garden. Wifi can be a bit fiddly to connect to but then it's super speedy. Parking is at the back, down the side of the pub. Was being resurfaced when we were there so should now be super smooth! Would definitely go back.More
