"I'm really disappointed to have to give The Manor's afternoon tea such a lowly rating, as I love the hotel and the staff are always friendly and accommodating. But the tea was a big let-down, and unfortunately left half of our party with stomach problems afterwards. First, let me thank our wonderful male waiter who couldn't have looked after us better. He was engaged, funny, and tried his very best to accommodate our needs. A real credit. The food at the afternoon tea was sufficient without being plentiful, and unlike most other high teas, any additional finger sandwiches or scones were extras. The sandwiches didn't taste completely fresh, particularly the salmon, and some of the bread used was on the dry side. The tea selection is limited and no refills were offered, though extra hot water was available on request. Scones were excellent and the mini cakes and pastries were satisfactory without being particularly good. I would of course have been more generous in my rating had half of us not been unwell afterwards. No, not the awful coronavirus pandemic but stomach cramps and nausea. Sadly we can only think it was something we ate at The Manor as none of us had eaten together earlier that day. So we'd think carefully before returning, but I hope this won't stop anyone reading this from booking a stay at the hotel, which is lovely. I'm just not sure you'd want to eat much there."
"On the evening of Friday 20th March the planned venue for my daughter's wedding which was due to take place on Saturday 21st March, rang and cancelled! As my daughter was booked into The Manor for Friday 20th and Sat 21st March we asked if they could help. They were amazing and saved the day giving us use of a function room, laying it all out at such short notice. They even rolled out the red carpet at the entrance for the bride and groom's arrival at the hotel. The staff were so helpful, we couldn't have asked for more. A massive thank you to all at this truly gorgeous hotel for making what could have been a disaster into a very special day!"
"I stayed whilst my daughter was having surgery at a hospital near by, made complicated by Covid restrictions re visitors. I was very kindly allowed to check in early. Jo on reception was very helpful, as were all the staff. The room, in a modern annex, was fairly standard, but the bed was incredibly comfortable and I slept very well. The actual manor, where the restaurant and bar are situated, is wonderfully beamed and decorated sympathetically. Breakfast was very good, but my evening meal was a bit ‘pubby’ however, I think under normal times their menu is different. Overall a very pleasant stay, in difficult times. "
