Historic Entrance to the Manor
The historic entrance to the manor dates back to 1649. This manor has increased in size over the years but the entrance you see is original. Your first glimpse of the historic entrance will likely be as the hotel porter comes to assist you with your bags.
As you enter the manor you get the first glimpse of interior. In fact, the building maintains a homely feeling although it’s large manor. Feel free to explore the manor and its unique decorations. You’ll find various interesting artefacts from the historic coat of arms on the fireplace to a rabbit shaped lamp. Lastly, the friendly staff at reception will be happy to answer any questions you have about the manor. From its deep history, to the local walks as well as the current dining schedule.
For the true manor experience I recommend the Manor or Cotswold rooms. Have you slept in a room with low beams before? Other spectacular rooms at the Lords of the Manor are the spacious Lords bedrooms. One of these features a 4 poster bed which I recommend you book well in advance.
Complimentary Tea and Coffee
Whichever room you choose at the hotel, you can enjoy a complimentary minibar of tea and coffee throughout your stay.

The fine dining experience at the hotel has been awarded 3 rosettes by the AA. As a result, it’s officially one of the best restaurants in the UK. Dress up and prepare yourself for one of the finest dining experiences of your life.
Seven Course Tasting Menu
The seven course tasting menu I enjoyed was an appetizer followed by veal, brassicas, cod and beef. Afterwards was a pre dessert before a Rum Baba for the dessert itself. Additionally, you may complement the tasting menu with a selection of cheeses.
Three Course A La Carte Menu
The A La Carte menu features a first course, main course as well as the all important dessert. For the first course I had a choice of veal, risotto or foie gras. Main course was a choice of halibut, beef or lamb. I must say, the lamb was delicious! Finally, this menu is only available on sundays whereas the seven course taster menu is available daily.
The critically acclaimed menus are complemented by a large selection of fine wines. As a matter of fact, those particularly interested may even organise a special visit to the onsite wine cellar. Most importantly, if you need recommendations for wine pairings a Sommelier is always closeby.
Lords of the Manor Lounge and Bar
The lounge and bar areas are perfect for relaxing and enjoying a drink. In addition, afternoon tea is served here daily. Sit by the huge bay windows for stunning views over the garden areas.
On a beautiful day you can enjoy your drinks outside. As a matter of fact, your afternoon tea can also be served outside. Did you know the whole garden area of the Lords of the Manor is over 8 acres? For this reason, you can take a peaceful evening walk without leaving the premises!
