I visited on Saturday afternoon with my daughters for Afternoon Tea. Tea was amazing and dietary requests addressed without question, service was outstanding and a fabulous afternoon enjoyed by us all. We look forward to visiting again.

We visited Chewton Glen as part of our 25th Wedding Anniversary celebrations. What an absolute treat. Food was exceptional ( a la carte) and the service was exemplary. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff. We shall most certainly be back. Highly recommended.

Always a pleasure, staff exemplary. Very nice setting too. A nice place for meals or afternoon tea, the scones are particularly good.

The food is lovely, the service is excellent. We celebrated my daughter's birthday with some friends and the children were treated well and the staff made sure they had a really lovely dinner.

No dress code. We had lunch today (very average!) and both wore jeans. It is smart casual rather than formal. The setting is certainly not formal so no need to dress up.
