About The Astor Grill at Cliveden House

Located in the charming old stable block, which once housed Lord Astor’s most prized fillies. Adopting an equestrian theme in its decor, The Astor Grill is full of character offering a simple and informal approach to dining at Cliveden.

The all-day menu is overseen by Executive Chef André Garrett and it focusses on a mixture of classic American and British dishes, many reminiscent of Cliveden’s diverse owners and residents. The name – The Astor Grill – recalls the Astor family, who owned the house from the early 1900s. William Waldorf Astor, America’s richest citizen, then gave the house to his son and daughter in-law, Nancy Astor, in 1906, and Cliveden became a vibrant social hub for guests as diverse as Charlie Chaplin, George Bernard Shaw and Winston Churchill.

The Astor Grill today is a cosmopolitan venue which is steeped in history, its romantic setting offers all the style and legendary hospitality that Cliveden is famous for, and it is the perfect place to escape and enjoy an early lunch or a relaxed supper.

A little more casual than we were expecting as had booked for a 50th Wedding anniversary, and perhaps didn’t expect to be surrounded by fellow customers in very casual clothing. Would never be a problem usually, but would choose the main restaurant for a special occasion next time. Service was exceptional. Food delicious.

We were most impressed by the fact that service was not left to one individual to look after our table but all of the staff were on hand to serve us, as and when needed. Everyone was super friendly and genuinely so.

The salad we had for lunch was fabulous and the chateaubriand for dinner was equally wonderful. Great service and it was a lovely hot evening for us to sit in the courtyard.

A lovely setting for a light lunch after a walk around the grounds. The friendly service made it even better. I would recommend as part of a day out in Cliveden

The menu was very limited due to Covid-19 restrictions. This was not advertised prior to our visit. Our Gnocchi starters arrived lukewarm so had to be reheated. They were still not hot when re-presented and the rocket garnish was now wilted. We suggested that the dish would be better presented with a parmesan topping finished under the grill. The Cod/Aubergine/Broccoli/Yoghurt main course was an odd combination that didn't really work. The Astor burger was good but not exceptional. The service that we received from Jamie was very good.

We chose the Astor Grill for my wife’s 50th birthday lunch as we were able to bring the dog.. All staff were most attentive to her (and us) and we had the most fantastic return visit to Cliveden. Our food was quite excellent as was the carrot cake birthday cake. Thanks all.....
