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.
As it was the last evening before lockdown there were a couple of things on the menu that weren't available.That was understandable given that they have to close again for a month. Wine by the glass very pricey for what was on offer Food prices what I would expect as you pay for the venue as well Service was great though and we had a nice evening.
Great atmosphere in the courtyard but it would have been even better with some overhead heaters ... it was very cold when we visited. We received a delightful welcome and were really made to feel comfortable. The service was excellent and our meals delicious and beautifully presented. We succumbed to the cold and moved inside for our desserts without any hassle. Another wonderful experience in the Astor Grill. Thank you!
Lovely spot for lunch. Staff were attentive and the food delicious.
Disappointed that chateaubriand and lobster were missing from the menu ended up ordering upmarket hamburgers which were very good
Very quiet, possibly due to pre shutdown nerves.
The staff were absolutely wonderful, thank you for such a delightful dining experience.
Service was excellent, as was the ambience. Covid regime was just fine. Couple of things about the food as it's obviously not the cheapest option: The fish and chips was too greasy, and the portion small. The Chicken & lemon had far too much oil, and too much sliced parmeasan - it was overpowering. The oil and balsamic dips needed more balsamic. The olives however were very good. The burgers were very good. The deserts were odd - I'd stck to a normal chocolate brownie. The 'raw' one just wasn't right. Sticky date pud - have an ice-cream or yoghurt option - the great big blob of clotted cream was just too much! The local beers were excellent. Some more affordable wine options would be nice...
Beautiful location, fantastic service, softer lighting overhead would add some ambience
Lovely polite service, delicious food, very Covid secure.
Friendly, welcoming, efficient service, good food, nice relaxed atmosphere.....
Always a pleasure eating at the Grill, nothing is too much for the staff they are polite and gracious. I suffer with food allergies and they are flexible, adaptive while making sure you don’t feel like a burden. Food is great too, much improved from the early days, will be returning.
Two of us were celebrating our 80th birthdays, on the day we should have been hosting a large party. So we decided to spoil ourselves by dining at Cliveden - we were beautifully looked after, even a birthday cake for each of us. A very thoughtful touch.
We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch with you yesterday and the food and service were excellent. My only feedback would be that the print on the menus was minute! Thank you.
We went there for lunch today to celebrate my son 8 year old birthday. It was a great lunch / food and amazing service from the team. My son has quoted, "it was his best lunch ever"! Thank you very much for making his day so wonderful.
excellent meal and surroundings and attentive staff
A lovely meal where the fab food was only out done by the attentive service - thank you!
Great food and service for a birthday celebration !!
We had a lovely birthday lunch at the Astor Grill. The staff were wonderfully attentive, polite and friendly. We felt very well looked after. I had forgotten to organise candles and cake for my husband but the Astor Grill had a little dessert prepared. Thank you so much for making a lovely outing at Cliveden even more pleasant.
Excellent restaurant and good fun!
Always a good experience which is why I keep going back
It was a wonderful lunch and service was brilliant. Thank you. Just fabulous.
Great food and service. Perfect setting for a less formal dinner.
Quick, efficient booking. Friendly welcome. Attentive service, good food and a good conversation with the manager after our meal, about Covid compliance regimes, masks and National Trust membership. Very enjoyable - we’ll definitely be back!
The chicken was dry , but this was not charged for . We were happy to pay but they took it off the bill . That was a great gesture. We will be coming back.
