Only ONE vegetarian main option available for Dinner. Luckily a dish I do like (goats cheese and beetroot risotto) and it was tasty, but surely these days all restaurants should have a number of options (without guests having to feel awkard by asking for special requests) to choose from like those who eat meat/animal produce.

We stayed at the hotel here recently and went in the restaurant for dinner. We were not disappointed as the food was excellent. We had a three course dinner and each course was both well presented and absolutely delicious. We will definitely be returning in the future.

Took my relatives from Oz for lunch. Two out of the three orders were cold, frozen inside the jacket potato. Couldn't pay the bill so we were sent to pay at reception. It's a good thing we are honest as we could have easily slipped out. The waitress was pleasant.

We had a lovely relaxing time over a two night stay on NYE and New Years Day night. The food was of a good standard and the staff were all courteous and helpful. Service could be a little slow but we were not in a hurry. We took our little pooch too as the hotel is dog friendly. We ate... More

We stayed at the hotel for 2 nights and had our dinner here. The grilled fish was so crispy on the outside and moist inside. Breakfast was standard English breakfast and was plenty and good.

My friend took me here for lunch and a catch-up. We were greeted very warmly by the hotel staff and taken through to the restaurant. The restaurant has a nice feel about it, but the decor of the rest of the hotel was very shabby. I had home made Lasgne and my friend had steak pie with chips. My meal... More

My husband and I had our wedding party one year ago at the Manor house. As an anniversary present my sister bought a voucher for us to enjoy a meal in the restaurant. We tried for 2 weeks at different times of the day to get through on the phone to book. Eventually I got through to the kitchen and... More

Steeped in history, so for a history geek like me, it couldn't be better. The Hotel is truly beautiful, and the rooms will make you feel like you have stepped back into Medieval England and Henry the 8th's court. The food is fantastic, the spa and health club (pool etc) beautiful and well kept. The staff are so friendly and... More

Food, whether lunch in the bar or in the restaurant, was of good quality, meat cooked to order and service brilliant despite them having a function in the Knight Hall. A good ratio of staff to customers and great service from all waiting and bar staff.

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.
