My wife and I were particularly impressed with the friendly and attentive service given by all members of staff, wherever we encountered them and in whatever situation. Many thanks for making our lunch such a memorable occasion.

A beautiful place to experience. Lovely grounds to sit in and enjoy a drink. Sunday cinema after lunch is a good way to spend an afternoon. A choice of vegetarian main course would be nice rather than just one option. Other than that - perfect.

You need to update your web description. It is no longer a swiss chalet, much nicer decor. The food and service were excellent, though the menu selection was not as broad as previous visits and the Jazz band were 'around the corner' from the diners, so could not be seen, and as a result did not add to the atmosphere - it may as well have been 'piped music'.

Another excellent meal, service is always exemplary. I love the fillet steak, but do find sitting with the hot stone in front of me does slightly reduce my ability to enjoy my meal.

My peaceful sanctuary to escape to for lunch, tea or a day or two. Always delivers and I leave feeling relaxed, happy and re-charged for the days, months and years ahead.

The atmosphere was lovely, warm and very relaxing. The attitude and service from all the staff was cheerful and positively helpful with nothing being any trouble. We had a wonderful meal, the portions were a very generous size and extremely tasty. My dietary requirements were met without any problem, I was told anything I requested off the menu they would make specifically for my diet. Which was refreshing to be able to have the whole menu to choose from and not just one or two items, just fantastic, highly recommend.

No longer Swiss chalet style (as described on this site). The hotel site shows the correct description. It had a makeover in November 2017 and is now a modern sophisticated dining room with soft grey and green colours. Food and service are always excellent.

The new decor is nice, although I did like the Swiss chalet feel of Le Mazot, the food and service were both good and in keeping with what you might expect from a upscale hotel brassiere.

Having eaten at Whatley Manor several times, we thought it was a safe bet to book Christmas lunch there and to expect first class service as always. Unfortunately we were very disappointed. It started off really well with the concierge giving us first class service on arrival and taking advantage of valet parking , as we had my 83 year old mother with walking difficulties with us. Having been escorted over to Grey's Brasserie we enjoyed champagne and canapes, but unfortunately it went down hill from there. The food was ok, but not served very hot and we felt like we were sat in café as opposed to a grand manor. Not the usual service we have encountered in past visits. We thought we would be able to retire to the lounge around the log fire for coffee and petit fours after lunch, but were informed that was for residential customers only! It was difficult to leave a tip for the serving staff as we had 5 different staff serving us. Would I pay £125.00 each again at Christmas time at Whatley Manor ? Probably not. Very disappointing, expected a lot better for Whatley Manor!

Thank you all for a lovely evening and meal at Greys brasserie, we have been using Whatley Manor for some 8 years and never disappointed. The newly refurbished La Mazot to Greys Brasserie was very welcomed. Kind regards Kim and Dave Edmunds

We had been so looking forward to our evening at Whatley Manor. I've heard great reports of the food and the hotel, also this was a leaving gift from my colleagues so was extra special. The hotel looked amazing and we were made very welcome upon arrival, the staff were super-friendly and attentive and we were escorted to the restaurant and shown to our seats. We were asked for our dinner choices just minutes after taking our seats so I asked for 5 more minutes to allow time to look at the menu..I think we were given about 3. As soon as our choices were given we were offered bread. About one minute after the bread was finished our starters arrived and the rest of the evening followed in the same rushed manner with no time given to relax between courses. We were so rushed that the bottle of wine we ordered was still half full by the time dessert was over! Our sit down time was 7.30 and we were back on the road at 9.15 having waiting quarter of an hour just to finish the wine. During the meal we were asked over half a dozen times if everything was alright...just too many interruptions that were unnecessary. Another comment I would make is that we had to top up our own wine and water, normally this would be done for you at a restaurant of this calibre though this wasn't a big problem, just another annoyance. The staff were very friendly and polite, the food was very good but we felt rushed which given that the restaurant was by no means full was a great disappointment.

Love the refurb, the ‘Swiss chalet’was unique but perhaps the time had come for a change. I’m looking forward to seeing the refurbished bar also, as it always seemed to be an under used space, and the idea of tapas evenings etc sounds great. I’m wondering in fact if other areas of the hotel may be in line for an update - the corridors between Grey’s and the lounge for example?! But please don’t do too much to the lounge - it has a lovely feel! The food was fantastic and beautifully presented. Very generous portions, my mum couldn’t finish the roast beef despite it being delicious. The menu was sophisticated, but with a little nod to Christmas. Congrats to your new chef. I’ve only given 4 stars for value as although the wine we had was really good, the list is fairly expensive - £40 for 500ml carafe for example. The food however was good value. The service we received was very good, polite and prompt. In particular just after we had been seated, someone who I imagine was the restaurant manager walked past, but stopped and checked we were being taken care of. I’ve given 4 stars only because a waitress tried to briing us another starter when we already had ours, and the guests at the next table were brought the wrong mains. I did however notice that the manager popped by to their table regularly thereafter to check all was well. Presumably some new staff and I’m sure all will settle after a while in the job. My mum was very touched by the small birthday cake that was brought to the table at the end of the meal. Thank you! Overall I was excited to hear that the Brasserie was being refurbished, and that there was going to be a new chef and management team. I was slightly crossing my fingers that all would be well - but it has exceeded my expectations. I’m very lucky to have this wonderful venue 5 minutes away! I wish the team all the success in the future, and look forward to many more visits!

This was a wedding anniversary lunch for just my wife and me before our late evening celebration. The Brasserie was less than 1/3rd occupied yet both the starters and main courses took quite long to arrive. I ordered the steak frites light to medium cooked and asked for some garlic butter instead of Hollandaise. The steak was medium/well and no garlic butter. Our waitress assured us she had asked for it and would request the chef to provide it straight away. At this point there were only 4 people in the Brasserie. It took so long that by the time it arrived I had finished my meal. The back-ground music was quite loud and discordant Jazz which is a particular taste and not at all condusive to a relaxed lunch atmosphere and which was so agitating we eventually asked that it be turned down or replaced. We decided not to stay for dessert or coffee. £86 for a light (and late) 2 course lunch and one glass of wine each. Very disappointing I'm afraid.

lots of confusion about childrens menu, whether there was one or not. I had checked in advance they said there was. then on the day there wasn't. but then there was. But then they said there wasn't. Nobody knew, the children's main courses were available but not the desserts. Had to send steak back twice , requested medium was rare. The first time they had done nothing to do it when they brought it back out. . Had to request for meals for the rest of the party to be taken back as well or they would have got cold waiting for me. had to request gravy 3 times. when they bought the cheese had to then flag someone down to get cutlery this meal was hard work for the customer! We've been to Whatley Manor as both hotel and restaurant guests many times but this was like faulty towers. Very disappointing. We did raise all these issues at the time adn they took the childrens meals off the bill. We didn't stay for coffee and liqueurs couldn't face more things going wrong!

Took my wife as a Birthday treat but although we have been several times on this occasion we were disappointed. The table we sat on was uneven and very wobbly. The food was excellent but plates were cold. Also the menu did not state what the soup of the day was and the Waiter did not mention this information when we placed our order. I know I could have asked myself, but it is only good courtesy for Waiters to offer this information when the menu is presented to diners.

I thought the hotel was more 4 star than 5 star, I have attended the Christmas shopping event for the past 2 years and the room with the gifts was magical, this year it was like a village hall event. dark & dreary. I have had better food at my local pub compared to your Christmas menu, the food was not in line with a Christmas menu..... steak & chips!!!! all in all I was very disappointed with the whole day and will not be attending next years.

The steak was the tastiest I've had for a long time and the Slovenian white wine was delicious but the "clementine trifle with Grand Marnier was DISMAL! I can only describe the bottom layer as dark wet compressed cardboard and I didn't get a hint of Grand Marnier! Having said that, I enjoyed our visit
