About Pendley Manor Restaurant
Pendley Manor is home to the award-winning Oak Restaurant as well as the unique Peacock Lounge and Shakespeare Bar. Enjoy dining in our 2 AA Rosette-awarded restaurant; serving exciting and imaginative food, classic afternoon teas and a large selection of wine - in the breathtaking Hertfordshire countryside.
Very impressed the chef got my dietary needs sorted without having to remind them. The dinning area needs a bit of brightening up (maybe tablecloth on the tables). The scones were by far the best I’ve had at any afternoon tea venues.
Visited to celebrate with friends for a late afternoon tea at 17:30, arrived, all staff seemed a bit confused, sat as at a dirty table, all other tables were also dirty. Waited around, a waiter then begin to put tea cups on our table without cleaning first. When asked if they usually sit people who have made a reservation at a dirty table we were told “depends” depends on what exactly? We booked here thinking it would be a nice fancy afternoon tea where we could celebrate. The level of communication was appalling. We had to ask 3 times for some tea to go with our afternoon tea!! When offered a glass of champagne to say sorry we declined as we were all driving and asked if we could have some sort of money off the bill instead, but this seemed to be a massive issue. It took having to go down to main desk to sort, but even then the lady was less than helpful and made us feel like we were just a nuisance. we finally got our tea, but no milk. It was just a disaster, the staff are rude, everything was messy, and it wasn’t even busy, so no excuse whatsoever! Will definitely not be returning and will be ensuring all friends and family know this!
Everything just needs to be fixed Customer service Food Breakfast was very bad Food in the Shakespeare bar very very expensive not value for money
My wife and i had a lovely evening at Pendley Manor Restaurant on Friday 25th October 2019. As always the staff were absolutely wonderful and could not do enough for us. The food was beautifully presented and cooked to perfection as was the ambiance of the restaurant. A big thank you to the team the lovely lady who served us and Ian the Restaurant Manager for making the evening so enjoyable. Looking forward to our next visit Peter & Lorraine Smith
Polite, efficient and friendly staff
Could do with a dress code, especially at dinner. Did not expect to see people in scruffy, badly stained workclothes. It's bad enough when people obviously only travel with jeans and a tee shirt. There are limits. If I'm being old fashioned then I do not apologise. Anyway, the refurbishment is ongoing but the areas completed are very well done. Staff are great, food is good and we did enjoy our stay, even if the room welcoming, on the tv,had someone else's name on it.
We had the oak dining room to ourselves so the atmosphere was a bit subdued. However the room was fully set up so it appeared complete as if more people were expected. Service was excellent and the food was good and very good value.
Lovely afternoon with my daughter, would highly recommend.
Lovely meal in the Oak Room at Pendley Manor. Steak was fab, and the Trout Starter was delicious. Portions were very generous. A few candles on the tables wouldn't go amiss as it's quite dark and atmospheric in the Oak Room in the evening.
With a wedding in progress we were impressed with the speed of delivery with our meal. The staff made this special event for my wife and guests an enjoyable event.
Staff were very friendly, customer aware and helped as much as they could. Booked 3 rooms, they were all lovely. Would stay again if we were in the area! Pool changing rooms weren’t great but if you’re staying, it’s not the end of the world.
We were not in the Oak the room we ate in felt cramped and some guests had to be asked to keep the noise down We had finished our starter before our drinks arrived There was a wedding which we presumed caused the delay
Lovely location and grounds. Staff were all great and provided brilliant service. We had afternoon tea, very expensive for what it actually is.
Had a wonderful afternoon tea, lovely room, food was fabulous & a nice touch of the Happy Birthday choc for my mother. I will definitely come again & heartily recommend. All the staff were attentive, friendly & helpful. Thank you
Food and drink were delicious, we had a few dietary requests which were met very well. however once we received our tea and food, we were never offered a top up of anything which was a shame as our tea soon went cold. We really enjoyed our time, but service left lot to be desired.
Generally we felt the service was rather unprofessional and some items ordered were served incorrectly due to the wrong information given by the waitress on ordering .
Lovely friendly staff Great setting
I would have liked the opportunity to see more of Pendley Manor; we felt like we were rushed into the room that was right by the entrance and then had to walk straight back out. The service was fabulous. The sandwiches and scones were very nice, unfortunately the cakes were very dry and seemed shop bought as opposed to freshly baked. Due to the quality of the cakes, I did not feel it was fairly priced at £24.95 per person and for that reason I wouldn’t return for afternoon tea. However, as the scones were so nice, I might return for a cream tea.
I am surprised to have received this as your reception are well aware of my issues with my whole weekend stay and we agreed I would send a full email of my complaints to your deputy general manager which I will be doing today
Enjoyable cream tea but could have been better. When the tea arrived it was already stewed and we had to wait a few minutes for milk. We had finished our tea before the scones arrived and we weren't offered anymore for the entire time we were there. This was disappointing.
We arrived late at the hotel, reception said we could move our dinner booking from 9 to 9.30, we arrived at restaurant , waiter said they were closed, I pointed out it was 9.30 he correctly pointed out it was 9.31 and restaurant definitely closed , but Fawlty Towers. Did manage to get decent bar meal though.
Been to pendley manor a number of times always been very good. Food was but the service was poor finishes plates left for at least 15 mins no water or drinks topped up. Empty restaurant too unsure if I will return
Everything about our stay was wonderful. Can’t believe the value for money. We stayed in a renovated part of the hotel, which was superbly done. The pool and changing area look a little tired in comparison, hopefully that’s being looked at as part of your ongoing renovation. We’ll definitely be back though
very good , lovely room,clean throughout. only one thing,as nice as it wasto see the birds peahen's and peacock. on the entrance to the hotel ,on the way out to my car i stepped on the muck that they deposited. not a good idea to have them roaming so close.
I had afternoon tea today which was booked for my Mother in Laws birthday. I honestly can’t believe that our bill was £113 for what we had. It really was an appalling standard of food, quality and quantity for the price per head. The gluten free bread is probably one of the worst I’ve had, you could have bounced it across the room with a bat. It seems you are penalised for having an allergy and a rubbish substitution should be appreciated. Our waitress was lovely and I didn’t want to make a scene in front of my family today as it wouldn’t have be fair to what was a lovely afternoon, it’s just a shame that the food was absolutely awful. I look forward to hearing from
