As a family we have been going to the Hallgarth Manor for 24 years and have never experienced anything other than outstanding service and wonderfully presented food. We have spent many Christmas's and held numerous special event / birthday celebrations there. Today is a sad day as we have learnt that the Maitre'd (John) is leaving the company. I would... More

Went to a baby shower here on 9th of Oct and we had afternoon tea which was amazing . It's how I liked it with plenty of savoury in it . The scotch eggs were to die for . The staff were excellent. The conservatory where were were was well decorated and spotless . Plenty of room for everyone

Stayed here for 2 nights on business. On night 1 I arrived at about 10.30 and the room was absolutely freezing. There was no heating on and no way to put any on even though it was only 7 degrees outside. There was no shower, only a bath without any form of shower head attached. I complained in the morning...

My recent stay at Hallgarth was very pleasant (although i did get the room that a couple had reviewed previously). The room floor was uneven( an old building) the tap in the bathroom was a bit loose and it could spray you if turned on quickly (not a problem, i quickly got the hang of it). The window seat although... More

It is easy to see why there are a wide rage of ratings for Hallgarth Manor. Some of what you get is very good however there is room for improvement. The Pro's and Con's are it's a grand old building. It is not lavish and would benefit from some maintenance but overall proved to be an enjoyable stay. Check in... More

Have had many lovely meals here to celebrate birthdays and anniversaries. Service good and staff attentive. Food tasty and always well presented. A very quiet restaurant which may not suit everyone but it is nice to be able to hear your own conversations and not those of other diners. Always worth a return visit.
