On entering the Manor House Inn our first impressions was a friendly, warm, happy atmosphere; there were a lot of people stood around drinking and enjoying themselves in the bar area. This came as a big relief as we nearly cancelled our booking after being warned by someone that the place was under new management and had gone downhill.
The menu was varied with plenty of choice and there was a separate specials menu and the sweet menu was also not a let-down. When the food arrived it was a good portion size, nicely presented and even more important was very tasty, and the plates were hot! The vegetables were served separately and unlike some places there was plenty. The waiting-staff were very friendly and informative; my husband has a shell-fish allergy and the young lady knew that one of the specials included prawns (although this wasn’t mentioned on the menu). Both the food and drink looked like it had been sourced locally where available. The food was priced fairly for restaurant prices.
The dining area we were sat in was pleasantly warm and cosy and we didn’t feel hurried. The separate skittle alley area seemed nosier but didn’t interfere with us.
To anyone thinking of a visit, don’t let the few bad reviews put you off, we could find nothing to complain about. We are so pleased we didn’t cancel and we would definitely return again.
