Exceptional dining experience with wonderful food and attentive staff
Lovely experience. Loss of a star on food and drink for limited vegetarian options.
Food was outstanding service very good
We had a lovely Evening in the library restaurant at Matfen Hall. The food was excellent & a drink before in the grand drawing room really sets the scene
Service was absolutely fabulous as always,maybe the price of the alcohol could be lowered as it is quite expensive! Rooms are fabulous Room 5 bring our favourite we will be booking again very soon looking forward to it,please could you let me know of any future offers. Thankyou.
We have stayed in Matfen Hall a few times now and have always dined in the library restaurant. The food has always been delicious and we've been thoroughly impressed every time. There's always a varied selection on the menu and the quality of food is excellent with fresh, local ingredients used. The service has always been impeccable. We can't wait to return.
the food was excellent and the staff were very charming and welcoming and would help you if you needed help
Evening meal was delicious and the staff where very friendly and attentive. The cooked breakfast the following morning was a little disappointing it came over cooked and cold.
Waited too long to order welcome drinks
restaurant service a bit slow but food was excellent and staff very helpful. Excellent room and all problems /requests dealt with rapidly and politely'
I absolutely adore matfen House and have visited several times. This was my second time having afternoon tea, I get the vegan afternoon tea, deserts are delicious but both times I’ve been served a lettuce sandwich. I just expect something which goes with how much I love the place. Even a bit of hummus would be a token gesture when comparing the normal menu with the vegan one. It’s a shame, I even gave 2 months notice this time.
I brought two friends for a weekend break to Matfen. Everything was superb. The food and service first class.
A lovely meal had by myself and my sister in law.
Staff were very helpful in ensuring my husband ,who has Parkinson’s with dementia , was assisted to the table and made comfortable. Thank you
We have eaten in Restaurants all over Europe and this was the first time that I could not eat my main course. It was far too salty. In fairness, my wife was delighted with her food.
Had the gentlemen’s afternoon with a great choice of teas and delicious Rington’s filter coffee. While we loved the home made elements (especially the gorgeous open ham sandwich, the cheese and pancetta scone, the sultana scone and home made picallili) we felt the scotch egg wasn’t up to the standard of the rest... also the scone needed a nice jam. Staff were lovely.
The food was delcious, especially the ham with the gentlemans afternoon tea. Atmosphere was also very tranquil, although the choice of background music seemed a little at odds with the architectural ambiance. Staff positioned everyone down one side of the room which was a little strange, but I assume this was due to the need to prepare the room for evening service
Quality of food excellent & attentive service, however as it was extremely quiet not much atmosphere at all.
We really enjoyed every mouthful! Didn’t have room for desert . The fillet steaks were cooked to perfection. Staff very attentive without being over bearing. Will certainly be back
Excellent meal, great service in a lovely setting.
Excellent as always and great attentive staff.
Food and service very high standard
Lovely meal. The host and chef were very accommodating for our dietary needs, adjusting elements. Fish and steak were both cooked beautifully. Lovely and fresh. A classic setting in the library but maybe a little background music would be nice too.
