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.
Superb dining experience as always
The fillet steak presentation was a bit poor. A very large roasted and tasteless tomato which was the size of the steak. I would have preferred smaller mushrooms to one giant one! My slow cooked beef was great as was the steak. Rather disappointed with desert options.
Lovely afternoon tea. Service excellent. Our request for a window table was successful. Just hope the fantastic waitress who served us got the tip from our table.
beautiful surroundings, efficient, friendly staff, gorgeous food - its all good :)
Ordered the corn fed chicken with the blue cheese sauce. The sauce didn’t come with the meal, it took a while to catch someone to ask. By which time my husband was almost finished his meal. Once the sauce did come the food was all amazing and couldn’t fault it.
We were at Matfen Hall for Afternoon Tea. The food was fresh and delicious. The staff superb and the setting was lovely. Really enjoyed this treat.
Had a really relaxed overnight stay with my husband Food was absolutely delicious and cooked to perfection
Fantastic Afternoon Tea with excellent service
The food in the library restaurant has always been amazing. Our afternoon tea was delicious and our evening meal was lovely too. One complaint would be that me chicken was a bit chewy and dry, but the accompanying elements were delicious.
We love coming to Matfen. After getting married here 5 years ago we return every year to celebrate our anniversary. This year was extra special as we did the ‘love lock’ package. The food is amazing, the staff are all lovely and very friendly and the spa facilities are fab. Love Matfen. We will be looking for offers in the future and returning very soon.
Thought the food was delicious Just one comment, I wanted to pay the excess for my meal on the night however I was told I had to pay it the following morning. Otherwise no complaints My daughter and I fully enjoyed our stay, all staff were very helpful and friendly especially the young lady on reception whose birthday is in June
Fabulous food. The service was delivered by friendly staff who were keen to ensure we had a great experience. Would definitely recommend staying and eating here.
We had a fabulous stay. We had great massages. Room was very comfortable with nice toiletries. Dinner in the Library was delicious- my husband said it’s the best steak he’s ever haf- and he eats a lot of steak !
we had a late lunch booking, and when we arrived it was very quiet - only about 6 other tables, and only 1 table of 2 arriving about the same time as us. Despite this, it took almost 30 minutes before anyone came to take our order. The starters were excellent and came pretty quickly which was great, leaving us really looking forward to our mains. However, when we got our main (roast dinner), the veg was really over cooked, the Yorkshire’s tasteless and the beef really fatty - far more so than you would except of a rib eye. And it was very rare which was a surprise as we hadn’t been told it was cooked like that to be able to ask for it to be more well done (fully recognising that some people prefer beef rare). There were plenty of staff but none to be seen after our lunches arrived, so had we left the food to ask for the meat to be better cooked the remainder would have been cold. Altogether a very disappointing experience.
Elegant dining, lovely staff, food was perfect. 5* service.
The afternoon tea we had was superb, there was so much we struggled to finish everything. Once our tea had been served, we were left to enjoy it at our leisure, only been disturbed once to apologise they had no mint to make my mojito, not the end of the world. All in all, I would reccomend Matfen Hall afternoon tea to anyone.
We had a lovely anniversary stay at Matfen Hall. Our room was amazing! All of the staff are very helpful and extremely polite. We had a lovely time and can’t wait to come back!
Dear Matfen Hall. All of the food that we had in The Library was absolutely beautiful, the only complaint I have is that there is no vegetarian menu, with only one vegetarian option on the menu it is extremely limited and the limited choice did spoil my dining experience. I did try the only vegetarian option and did quite enjoy it but would not have chosen this from a vegetarian menu.
Top class afternoon tea with impeccable service
Staff were attentive and courteous. Food was excellent and well presented. It would have been helpful to have the taster dessert explained!
Really pleasant experience staff were attentive without being over bearing. Food was delicious. Thanks to all
Lovely tea, the only point I'd make as it was unusually very warm there was only one small fan in room which didn't make much difference to the heat.
Impeccable service and food as usual.
