The food was excellent - I had a crab martini with local crab, mango sorbet, poppy seed straw, and my sea bass main was delicious. The wine was great, and the cheese board delectable. The staff were friendly and knowledgable, providing a welcoming and professional service.

On Oreston Manor’s website it states “Our aim is to serve you as you would wish to be served. Relaxation and enjoyment not rules regulations are the order of the day.....” Full of hope and expectation to celebrate a significant birthday, we entered and it was warm and clean. However, our glow soon faded! Even though the tea had been... More

The photos are an example of the cakes and presentation you may expect from a Full afternoon tea for two. Cake type may vary according to season etc. We have a reliable consistent quality of cakes. However I do apologise as it seems in your case there was a problem with one of the cakes and I agree the cakes... More

We were tired and hungry after a long walk and the staff couldn't have been nicer. We had lovely salads, steak and eggs benedict with smoked salmon chosen from their lighter bites but there is a wide choice of fine dining food too. This is a great family run affair and they deserve to succeed.

We booked a table for six to take friends out for a meal. We hadn't visited since the hotels face lift. Everywhere was beautifully decorated in English Country Hotel style, the staff were welcoming and attentive and most importantly the food was excellent and good value. We were not rushed to get through quickly and had a relaxing and enjoyable... More

The husband and wife D'Allen partnership in the kitchens has restored this restaurant to the top of the Torquay dining tree. Great food, good wines, friendly and efficient service. Nothing to be faulted.

We have been here a couple of times and the whole restaurant experience is simply amazing! The food is fresh and delicious and staff very welcoming and attentive. Make sure you book ahead and if possible sit outside. The hotel has beautiful views and a wonderful garden. We have also stayed at the hotel. We booked the Horsley Suite and... More

Went to Orestone Manor last night to celebrate my 50th Birthday and I have to say I was very disappointed. Our table was booked for 8pm, we didn't go through to the restaurant until 8.30pm and we were greeted with children running around the restaurant. I have nothing against children in restaurants, however I am against parents that think it's... More

Thank you for your feedback. Our resturant manager did speak to you on the night and explained that we had not been made aware at the time of booking that there were young children in this party, as we do normally only ask that older children dine in the a la Carte dining room. He did explain at the time... More

Our dinner here with two friends was one of the best tasting we can remember! My wife had the artichoke & truffle soup to start and it was apparently divine. I started with the scallops - lightly seared, delicate, cooked to perfection! I had the venison as a main course: it was absolutely delicious, tender, wonderful sauce, exquisite taste. Everything...

My mother had a voucher for an afternoon tea. The setting and food were lovely! It was all fresh and very tasty. Service was a little slow to start but the staff were all very friendly and attentive. I did however go with my 3 month old baby. There was no baby changing facilities available. When I asked they just... More

Dear Clare, Thanks for your review, and thank you for the great suggestion. We don't have a wall with the combination of strength and space that would accommodate a fixed changing table, but we have now installed a portable changing table as you suggested. We hope to see you again soon, and please be assured your baby will now be... More
