Fantastic lunch. We couldn't fault anything at all, service brilliant, very attentive without being intrusive, nothing too much trouble. Each course was beautifully prepared and absolutely scrummy, the desserts are really delicious (only problem is deciding which to order!) The chef is an absolute credit to the establishment. Reasonably priced and the portions are really good, we were all stuffed... More

WE were here for lunch with friends who live nearby and it is evidently a popular venue therefore booking is probably essential at most times. WHilst it is obviously a pub, the Manor Inn has been redecorated and is now a gastro haunt for foodies but still welcomes walkers and dogs with well behaved owners! THe beers are local and... More

First time visit for lunch. Very busy(good sign in itself) and great choice of food. Excellent value for money. Service good, very efficient but somehow lacked a little friendliness although we will put that down to how very busy the staff were! The food itself was wonderful and we will without doubt return now that we have discovered this little... More

My sister in law and I meet here for dinner every few months. It is comfortable and we always get a quiet corner for a good 'catch up'. The food is always absolutely delicious, last night was no exception, we had one of the specials, guinea fowl. Service efficient, friendly and unobtrusive. Thanks to everyone at The Manor. See you...

Following a recommendation we visited this Pub and were not disappointed. Lovely friendly staff and a menu offering plenty of interesting unusual dishes along with some classics making it hard to decide! Generous portions, quick service and comfortable surroundings along with good local beers. No room for desserts but they did sound amazing. Would definitely return as excellent value for... More

Having been last December, we decided to have a night out with some new friends and as we are all foodies decided the Manor Inn would be a good choice. The first time the food was really good and this time we were not disappointed. The service is very good and the poor guys got used to the fact that... More

Another excellent Sunday lunch at the Manor. Very welcoming greeting on arrival. Drinks service to the table. Roast was delicious - plenty of vegetables and "thick" cut meat and plenty of it. The puddings were absolutely lovely. Everyone had a great meal in a great atmosphere. Thank you.
