About Stanbrook Abbey Hotel

From heritage dining rooms to stylish lounges and a contemporary bar, there is always something to discover at Stanbrook Abbey in Worcester. Our newly refurbished restaurant, The Refectory, is a restoration of the nun’s original dining room and now serves a relaxed menu of modern British food, inspired by the season.
With an altogether more contemporary feel, the light bright and airy George’s Bar serves tasty bar food and an extensive drinks menu, from morning until night.
For that special occasion, our plethora of private dining rooms offer a variety of memorable settings for your birthday celebration, anniversary or business event, and those looking for a touch of indulgence can settle in to enjoy the time-honoured tradition of afternoon tea.

Fantastic venue, great food and excellent service from Claire. She was extremely welcoming, friendly, helpful and couldn't do enough for us. She really made an effort and went the extra mile to ensure we had everything we needed along with all the other customers. She really made our afternoon even more enjoyable. Claire's a credit to Stanbrook Abbey, if only there were more people like her in the hospitality sector. We will definitely be returning in the New Year.

It was my husband’s birthday and our first time here. When booking, I requested if they could do something special for him. The hotel staff kindly decorated the table with birthday decorations and also offered complimentary champagne glass and a happy birthday plate. The service was absolutely great. The staff member who served us and took care of us did a fabulous job and was very kind and helpful! He made the event even better :) Punam

This is a first class experience all round and highly commended. The service and food remain of a high standard and the history of the Abbey helps you past all the COVID intrusions. A favourite place and one to return to many times..

We thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon tea, a lovely treat at the end of a very difficult year for everyone. Beautiful dining room and hotel Christmas trees and your staff, as always, friendly, welcoming and professional. Compliments to the kitchen and dining team and we look forward to returning in 2021

This is our second time visiting Stanbrook Abbey for a meal, and once again it was wonderful! The staff are incredible and the service we received on both occasions was fantastic- you should be really proud of your team. I mentioned it was my birthday and I was treated to a lovely surprise from our waiter bringing me some chocolates. We live local so will continue using Stanbrook Abbey to eat out, and I have shared with my friends how good the experience is there. So lucky to have this on our doorstep. My only tiny criticism would be that when I booked online the only available slot was 6pm, but the restaurant was empty for the majority of our visit. I would have come a bit later but it looked to be fully booked. Other than that- it was perfect!

Could really do with a decent lager on draught. May I suggest Peroni Carlsburg and San Miguel are probably the 2 worst you could have to choose from.

Unfortunately we were disappointed with our meal which we had booked to celebrate our engagement. The bruschetta didn't arrive with sun-dried tomatoes and olives as described on the menu, the steak didn't have vine tomatoes, mushroom and marrow gratin or a watercress salad as described on the menu. It felt like overpriced pub grub in a nice setting.

This is my third visit for Sunday Lunch (and more are booked) so that is an indication of how much I enjoy dining at Stanbrook Abbey. However, there has always been one small niggle and on this visit it became so intrusive, I had to comment both in the restaurant and especially in the bar. That is the volume level of the 'back-ground music' It really was most intrusive and one could hardly hear each other talk in the bar - this does not create an intimate atmosphere, in fact, it creates the opposite. So please, hotel management, take note the term is 'back-ground' music and if one can actually hear it....then its too loud! Otherwise, you hotel, service and food are the best! (from an ex-hotel manager!)

Fabulous Take-away- Tipsy Afternoon Tea! Delicious and unusual savoury items, different to the bog standard sandwiches normally associate with an Afternoon Tea, and the sweet items were beautifully made and presented. Stanbrook Abbey's scones really are the best - a slight crunch on the outside, with fluffy insides make them the highlight of the tea. We ordered for 4 people, and had plenty of cakes left over for the next day which was an added bonus.

We had the Sirloin Beef Sunday Lunch takeaway....oh my goodness it was definitely worth the 29 mile trip to collect......from the presentation to the food itself......perfect! Thankyou Stanbrook Abbey for all the efforts you are making in these difficult times.

We had a takeaway Family Lunch last Sunday. The food was absolutely delicious beyond our expectations with our dietary requirements being catered for too. There was plenty of food (serves 6 people) and all this for a total of just £35 – fantastic value. I highly recommend you try the takeaway service during the current lockdown. We’ll be definitely using this service again!
