Had a carvery meal at Shendish with 37 of our family and friends at Christmas. Couldn't fault it. Great value, easy going friendly staff especially with the children running around. Food was good. One of our party used to work there and they had no problem with us nosying around for old times sake. Drinks ok too. all in all, from booking with Lucy to Gunta working on the day with Ahmed and Mohammed they made us feel very welcome. Thanks! JL

We would just like to take this opportunity to say a massive thank you to all the wonderful and hardworking staff at Shendish. A special thank you goes out to Kiri, who ensured the whole day ran smoothly, with great professionalism. Nothing was too much for her, and it seemed that any time she was needed, she was there. Very much on the ball! And what a stunning table plan she laid out for us, it was arranged beautifully. Better than we could have imagined. Even the photographer who has done hundreds of weddings, said it was the best table plan he'd seen.

Laura was also amazing with all the pre-planning and work on our function sheet. She helped organise the running of the day and was always very kind and helpful from the start. She always had a smile on her face, putting us at ease at every meeting.

The chef Paul and all his kitchen staff were amazing, the food was delivered promptly and piping hot, which put my mum at ease as she had been concerned about this prior to the day. The presentation was all beautiful and the desserts were a work of art!

You all gave us the wedding of our dreams and because of you all, we will always have wonderful memories of our wedding day at Shendish Manor. We are still being sent messages saying things like 'It was the best wedding we've been to' and lots of young couples are now saying they want to get married there too. Couples that had already married were saying 'lets get married again, so we can get married at Shendish!'

The only thing we regret, is how quickly the day went by, and I only wish I could do it all over again without the stress and worry, because I know now there was nothing to worry about. All the staff made sure everything ran beautifully and smoothly, providing us with a perfect day.

We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for providing us with the best day of our lives. Please ensure you extend our warmest thanks and gratitude to all the staff and people mentioned above. Many Thanks.

God Bless.

Ellena and Jonathan Hill

Apologies for the tardiness of this review but myself and my husband Adam enjoyed our wedding reception at Shendish Manor in November 2012 and can highly recommend it for other couples looking for somewhere to celebrate.

Laura Banbury the wedding co-ordinator did such a fantastic job in the run up to the wedding and put me at ease at every stage, and on the day the Operations manager Gunta was on hand to make sure everything went smoothly. She was always discreetly in the background and was a reassuring support especially on such a big day - it was only towards the end of the night she told it was the first time she'd managed a wedding, and she did such a fantastic job!

The rest of the team at the hotel were always on hand if we needed them and the standard of the food during our wedding breakfast was amazing and we've had lots of comments since about it's high standard. The evening buffet food was amazing too - the layout and attention to detail was great and it went down a storm with all the guests. We had lots of guests stay overnight and no complaints from anyone - all the rooms were modern, with lots of space and just what was needed after a long day. The team at breakfast were also accommodating and we had some larger tables allocated for us all to enjoy it all together the following morning - a nice touch but perfect considering we don't see the guests very often.

All in all a fantastic stay and we wouldn't hesitate recommending this venue.

We have just returned home from a wonderful relaxing weekend at Shendish Manor Hotel. Our room was tastefully furnished, comfortable, clean and very spacious. The staff were warm, cheerful, and friendly. All the staff members we met made us feel very welcome but I particularly want to mention Emma, the Duty Manager, Lucy on Reception and Mo the bar man, because I felt they 'went the extra mile' for their customers and nothing was too much trouble for them.
We stayed two nights and enjoyed two breakfasts and two evening meals. The breakfasts were of the standard expected in most hotels. The evening meals were excellent with good sized portions of beautifully cooked ingredients, well presented and excellent flavours.
We will definitely be returning to this hotel when we want another weekend break.

since the house has been under new management for the past couple of years Shendish has certainly improved. it is a nice place to go for an afternoon tea and is a reasonable price for what you get. I have been for one evening meal there and it was also very nice. I would recommend popping up for a drink in the summer months and then going for a stroll around the gardens.
