About Stanbrook Abbey Hotel
Delicious food complemented by wonderful views, Stanbrook Abbeys Restaurant dining rooms offer an elegant, laid back experience, which celebrates our seasonal collection of menus designed to indulge and delight the senses.
No record of the booking on arrival ! Then being told later we were booked in for dinner! Checking the confirmation email we were booked in correctly for the 2 for 1 afternoon tea. All a bit strange. Apart from this, fabulous hotel and enjoyed the day.
There were a number of issues with our birthday celebration, my mother was 93, and I dealt with these on the day. We did email you regarding the birthday celebration and received a reply from your team saying that you would make it special, nothing happened though. We would be very wary about returning.
Our visit for Sunday lunch more than lived up to our expectations. The food was delicious, the surroundings divine (no pun intended!) and the staff absolutely delightful. Particular thanks must go to Annie who was most attentive but without being intrusive and her delightful demeanour (along with others whose names I sadly did not catch) contributed a great deal to the whole experience. We have already recommended to friends and will no doubt visit again. If it wasn’t for the fact that we live on the doorstep, a night at the Abbey would definitely be on my wish list.
Delicious afternoon. Particularly enjoyed the loose leaf tea and the scones. Only downside was that the bread on your sandwiches had been cut too early or stored in the fridge too long as it had started to go stale. Otherwise fantastic.
very good afternoon and a fantastic place
Afternoon tea was fantastic but I think the vegetarian sandwiches need to be better & more choice of fish & egg alternatives. Staff were very attentive. The grounds and buildings are stunning and well worth a visit.
A really special treat of Afternoon Tea for the Mums. Thoroughly enjoyed it.
Lovely meal as part of our autumn break package. Food was delicious and staff were very helpful. As the meal was part of our package it was reasonable value, but it would be a bit expensive for us as a usual meal out, other than a special occasion.
Absolutely lovely Champagne afternoon tea, delicious sandwiches, scrumptious scones and cakes & a good choice of teas. All in beautiful surroundings. The food and service was exceptional.
Beautiful place,fantastic rooms and ambience. Food good,but felt not enough cream for 2 scones ! Also,as such a wonderful place,then perhaps proper jam should be served in a dish,rather than in the jars ! Just a thought. Love the place though
Hi There, Thank you for giving me the opportunity to comment on my Afternoon Tea. The sandwiches were very nice and the scones were exceptional. But I did have to ask for more jam and cream. Considering we had two each, the amount of jam was nowhere near enough. The small desserts were terrible, I really couldn`t eat them, The chocolate ones were OK but I struggled not to spit the others out. A real shame, because it left a bad memory of an otherwise very nice afternoon. I won`t be returning or recommending it as a special day out. Ian Jones
Not a lot of choice on lunchtime menu
It was very quiet until the piano started and some people were whispering but everything else was fine.
Delicious food, beautifully presented with excellent, attentive service. Will definitely return for another meal.
The cream with the scones was whipped not clotted. The table cloth had bits of fluff on it so appeared dirty.
I treat for a special friend, who has had a rough year would have complained but not in a position. Sorry to say not as good as last year, when we had small savoury tarts, macaroons and meringues. However did like the small scones. The sandwiches were poor, colour and taste of bread not good and the fillings were not much better especially the cucumber and egg ones. Although I booked with the offer still poor value Service excellent
Took my wife for her birthday to the hotel and had dinner on the night of her birthday in the restaurant. She loves salmon and ordered accordingly. The salmon appeared fine but was accompanied by floating vegetables! Sadly she did not tell me, nor the staff, of this in case it spoilt the atmosphere of here birthday. Will think twice about using this restaurant!
The new building that is now the reception area has destroyed the historic atmosphere of this wonderful abbey. Georges bar is so tacky it is hard to believe. A colour scheme of purple furniture, including the leather seating, lime green chairs and strange light fittins is Liberace at his best - and he died 31 years ago!
This was our return visit after we got married there last year and once again the service from every member of staff was fantastic, Even walking past a member of your team they smile and ask if your ok. We already highly recommended stanbrooke and will continue to do so.
Awfull service at bar. Untrained staff, ordered 2 liquour cofffees in restaurant. Had to go down to bar, to find out where they were. I could see them behind bar, only to be cold they had gone cold. Waited a further 30 minutes from them to arrive. Staff certainly not hand picked
Food was poor quality and lacked flavour. Overpriced for the amount of food that was served. The service itself was slow and I had to continually ask the waiter for assistance (with bill, more tea etc). Would not recommended and will not return.
Beautiful location and stunning buildings tastefully decorated. The toilets were amazing ! Perfect ambience and piano music. Delicious food selection served by attentive and unobtrusive staff - nothing was too much trouble. Excellent value for money. Would highly recommend the whole Afternoon tea experience.
Wonderful lunch in beautiful surroundings
First time I've booked for afternoon tea and it was a perfect outing for myself and 2 friends, one of whom was visiting from Canada. Great service (very friendly lady from Portugal, who's name I can't remember) Will definitely be back and will recommend to friends.
We enjoyed this visit but you have to provide excellence of service throughout and not just when its convenient for your business. When I book a table for two (Sunday lunch at 2pm) I don't expect to arrive at the restaurant to find that the table isn't set and we felt we were not expected despite booking in advance.. Then despite the fact that my bill with wine was in excess of £150 its disappointing that the staff were withdrawn presumably to serve the wedding party that had begun. I had to return to the bar to settle my bill. Much to improve upon but as we live in the village you will get another chance to provide a full service.
