Five of us had afternoon tea here in between Christmas and New Year - such a lovely way to spend an afternoon, into evening. We were treated to beautiful cakes, pastries, scones and fresh sandwiches and endless tea served in beautiful pots. Highly recommend.

I had the scallops and beef while my fiancé had the quail and lamb. He said the quail was full of flavour and was the most incredible dish ever. The extra... More

Sat down at 8.15pm, main course served at 10pm.Far too long if you are trying to entertain guests. Come on, this is supposed to be five star fine dining. Standards must be maintained if you propose to charge... More

Compliments are definitely due to the chef here also to the service. Our 13 year old twisted his order a lot between adults & kids menu & this was no trouble to the... More

I had heard magnificent reviews about Hayfield manner over the past couple of months and finally an opportunity came up to stay here last week. It's stunning with a pleasant ambiance and very mannerly staff however, the only let down was the food. I'm not one to complain but this has to be mentioned. When i order a Caesar salad... More

Wonderful meal and friendly staff who were more than happy to help with drink suggestions to round off the meal. The menu choice was good. Food served was first class and the staff attentive without being intrusive. Would recommend for a special occassion.
