About Matfen Hall
Classic and contemporary dining in stately surroundings.
Under our acclaimed Executive Chef, Paul Blakey, and Head Chef, Nick Kleist, our cuisine is carefully prepared using the freshest, local ingredients and in season meat and produce.
My wife and the lady at the next table had to send their steaks back as they were ridiculously salty. They were replaced free of charge. Breakfast did not seem to be up to your usual standard and we left most of it. Not so keen on the "make your own toast " system.
Lovely stay for my daughters 30th birthday
The Library restaurant is maybe 'too quiet'. Do you think a Pianist would go down well here? I think that would be just the finishing touch!
Fantastic meal with family and friends - could not fault anything.
I felt welcomed and I truly enjoyed myself. During dinner the service was excellent. Helen at the spa was phenomenal, thanks Helen! Only thing that negative with my experience was the homemade waffles during breakfast. Thank you for making my birthday special.
Excellent as always.
Evening meal was delicious as always at Matfen. Staff very attentive and friendly.
Fantastic service throughout our stay. Library restaurant exceeded our expectations. The food was excellent and an impressive wine list to select from. Staff very attentive during our meal. Spa was great we got down early on a morning and had the spa to ourselves for a couple of hours, it was wonderful. Can’t fault our stay at all 10/10.
A stunning setting with excellent food and value for money, always love to visit here, it never disappoints!!
The Library restaurant is beautiful but the lighting is dreadful at dinner time. Far too bright so lacks ambience. Beautiful food though!
Exceptional quality and service.
Really enjoyed our afternoon tea in the Library. Matfen Hall is a very welcoming place with a warm friendly atmosphere.
Friendly staff, great room with view of golf course and beyond. Good value for money Library restaurant fine but probably could do with updated decor and approach. Spar good , although tight poolside area.
I never thought that I would see half a mushroom served at breakfast as I did on Monday the 11th!
Lovely staff and service. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience, and would love to come back!
We had a lovely meal staff were amazing and very efficient food was delicious had a great time
Great service and excellent food
Lovely food and service
Spent 2 days at the hotel celebrating 40 years of marriage - couldn't be better
Although the restaurant was very quiet we felt very comfortable and didn't mind being the only guests! The staff were very attentive and made us feel welcome. We also enjoyed our Prosecco by the fire in the drawing room. All in all a real treat to celebrate our friend's birthday.
Excellent all round
Wonderful food and service. Both dinner and breakfast were excellent and beautifully presented. Comforting and comfortable atmosphere maintained by warm and friendly staff.
Lovely stay to end the perfect weekend
All the staff were very helpful nothing was too much trouble. They were all very attentive and pleasant.
The whole experience was wonderful! We were married on Saturday at Matfen and stayed the extra night. Not only was the food and service exceptional but some of your staff had served us on Saturday and made a point of coming over to say hello and talk to us about our night, namely Kate who had worked on the reception bar. Also Richard who had seen us previously and was extremely friendly throughout our stay. Thank you for not only a beautiful meal but exceptional service.
