Encompassing the traditional brasserie restaurant concept of friendly service, seasonal local produce, simply cooked and imaginatively presented. The emphasis is on big flavours, everything from breads through to puddings is homemade, and top quality meat, poultry and game are the backbone of the menu, accompanied by a well-rounded wine list.
We had a fantastic Valentine's Day dinner!
The bar and waiting staff were exemplary in their friendliness and knowledge. We had the perfect Valentines meal, the ambience, lighting, food, wine, service and recommendations were all excellent. Thankyou
Amazing service from a fantastic team! Made the evening feel so special!
Not sure about VFM as on DBB terms in hotel.. The vegetarian food was unusual, interesting and superb but the lack of choice would make me think twice about staying for a longer period on DBB terms.
We really enjoyed our meal and appreciated the creative approach to cooking - the foraged garnishes were surprising on the palate and worked a treat, but would have liked more than one vegetarian/vegan option among the main courses.We've already recommended friends to visit!
Excellent food and service.
The food was amazing on both days. The wine list needs to be refreshed for both white and red. Service was good on Thursday as it was quiet but not good on Friday (8th Feb) as it was busy! To wait 50 minutes for our table and then a further 15 minutes for our starter is not acceptable! This being said, I cannot fault the food. Also thank goodness for the Italian waitress who was ‘filling the gaps’ single handily, even when there were staff, who were not doing anything other than chatting!
Menu a bit limited even though Chef willing to supply something else with notice. Service can be slow at times.
Very good experience . Relaxed and professional
Love the deals, previously enjoyed Secret Escapes deal and more recently Sunday evening deal. Would like to see cocktail offer of the week.
Lovely food lovely hotel
Can you Clone G and have 100 Gs in your hotel? She is just amazing! We love her. Next time we come we are taking her with us. She is such a credit to you. Please pass the comments on to her. Food wise it was the best meal I have had. It was just incredible.
My husband said this was the best restaurant meal he had in a long time. The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable of the menu.
Incredible food, beautifully presented. A real treat to dine here. Lovely twists on everyday dishes, making it very memorable. We were very well looked after by all the staff. Thank you.
The dining experience with you was fantastic. Every mouthful of food was incredible and the service was great. We enjoyed the use of local ingredients and the South African dishes too.
The Hotel is fabulous but the meal was curates egg. The starters were delicious and beautifully presented but both our main courses would have been better placed on the pudding menu and we gave up on the bottle of red wine as it had not appeared by the time we had started our main course. The breakfast was excellent.
There is no 2 ways about it - this place is expensive, very expensive. The food needs to be amazing to justify it, and I must say it really is. Innovative dishes with South African, Japanese, European and british flavours, not faceless silly "fusion cooking" but a thoughtful blend of the familiar with the new and adventurous. Absolutely wonderful, we went for dinner twice in a row and tried a range of dishes, and every single plate was an amazing experience (with the exception of the greasy and tasteless onion rings that came with the steak - given how divine everything else was I'm assuming a test or a private joke from the chef). The service is perfect, attentive without overbearing, unpretentious but not too casual for the environment. Very highly recommended, a great dining experience.
very enjoyable sunday evening roast diner
We found a fantastic Secret Escapes deal, our stay at The Mechants Manor and our dinner at Rastella were incredible. I will highly recommend the beautiful and considerately decorated hotel and spa. Rastella restaurant is a rare gem in England, it was high quality food, the staff were very knowledgeable and attentive and I have to say the interior was absolutely perfect for the place. Its was a quiet evening when we were there and unfortunately the wines we wanted were sold out, but the place made us feel very welcomed and it was a inviting and warm atmosphere. Thank you for a really romantic getaway.
Already recommended the hotel and the restaurant and friends have booked with you because of it!
Fantastic two night stay. Staff very helpful and friendly. Room was more than adequate. All the facilities you need for a pleasant experience and the food was amazing.
Absolutely loved our stay. Great room. Delicious food. Fabulous spa treatment and excellent service throughout.
Exceptional food, incredible experience. Fun, playful menu and dishes kept us guessing and delighted through each course. Staff were knowledgeable about the menu and made us feel comfortable to ask questions about it. Will be recommending to all. Thank you
