My mother, myself and son visited the Manor as a result of local advertising - my mother lives in Ilfracombe. On arrival for lunch we were advised the chef had left!! However the staff were polite and offered us sandwiches which we agreed. Here comes the rub. 2 rounds of sandwiches £10 each. We were not offered any choice at all. They presumed we liked mustard with our ham - which we didn't so only able to eat the cheese. They took half an hour to prepare them.
I had gone to admire the many chickens and other poultry so was not aaround when Mum paid the bill.
Was appalled when told it was £36!!!!!!!!!!! The setting was great but to pay that much for sandwiches, So my mother will certainly not be repeating the experience and I wont be recommending the Manor to my friends. Carol, Dorset
