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.
Delicious food but portions were too small for hungry people after an active day. ‘A mouse would still be hungry with the size of the cheeseboard’ Staff very attentive and knowledgable about the menu can’t praise them highly enough.
Very good food and friendly service.
molly and will were most helpful and while the food was a little rich for us oldies we were offered an alternative that was great so all in all 1st class kind regards mike Jackie frizzell
Sunday lunch, late. Food and drinks fine, service good. However, why squeeze three people onto a small round table designed for two?
Exquisite. The meal we had was absolutely delicious. The staff were dynamic, caring and attentive. We could not fault anything. We love the ethics with locally sourced ingredients. We can't wait to come back! Thank you for making our stay wonderful.
Excellent chef. Friendly staff. Very pleasant hotel.
Divine! The service was the best we've ever had in a lovely relaxing atmosphere. The food was off the scale and we tried things off the menu which we have never had before and weren't ordinarily likely to try. So much time and patience had gone into preparing the food during the whole of our stay from breakfast to dinner. The staff are wonderfully attentive and their attention to detail we have never encountered before. We had lovely chats with other diners and they were saying exactly the same as us. We are looking forward to coming back again. Thank you so much. You really made our stay special.
Excellent food & service on the 3 nights we ate at Rastella. We cannot fault it and the friendliness of the young staff group really helped make the evenings enjoyable.
A wonderful dining experience. Taste and food presentation was exquisite. The hotel had been recommended to me but I had no idea about the food. What an absolute joy it was. The artistic delivery of each course was breath-taking. All the staff were so friendly yet very informed and professional.
Rastella - and Merchants Manor overall - is fabulous! The staff are always lovely, professional, helpful and cheerful. The food is amazing, the cocktails are astounding... I visit whenever I can!
Unfortunately our preferred starter was out of stock by 8pm. We had the Sunday Sleepover deal and it was very unclear what was included and what wasn't. In fact, we chose steak which unbeknown to us had a £5 supplement. Management were very fair to us though and wavered this cost. The choice of desert was very limited, it was either some apricot dish (which we didn't like),a cheese board (which did show a supplement) or a very basic ice dream dish (presentation nil) Despite this it was a pleasant experience overall and the Staff were very friendly and attentive.
Professional, friendly service. Cooking of a high order. Interesting but not gimmicky,
An excellent restaurant with very good staff
Five star plus service as always, thank you! A great team!
Brilliant food & service - beautiful hotel. Cocktails were fantastic as well!
Both Food and Service was exceptional, wouldn’t hesitate to recommend and will be visiting again
Omg this was THE most amazing dining experience. Every dish was carefully described by Will, and we absolutely loved it all. As I said at the time, I felt I’d died and gone to heaven with each course. Hilton (not sure of spelling) is a Masterchef of the highest calibre. The restaurant and bar staff all worked so hard and we felt like an amazing team was looking after us for our wonderful meal. Thank you all so much.
Menu choice felt very selective in choice and could be more varied noticed several others mentioning the choice was slim. Drink selection excellent. Room clean, tidy and spacious.
The service and food was great. The bread was good to start and the starter was interesting with all ingredients being locally foraged. We both loved the Beef roast and all evening found all the staff were friendly and helpful. We will be sure to visit and dine again. The Sunday menu included as part of dinner bed and breakfast was also great value for money. Thank you.
Sadly one steak of the four we ordered was awful.. Fatty... Chewy.. Unable to eat. The other three were perfect.
Excellent meal. Good choice, well presented and high quality.
Amazing service staff knew exactly what they were serving and were on hand for any questions Food was very good, but have had better hence the 4 star only. My starter was very bland the TR11, and to pay for a side of potatoes at £3 with the main dish prices from £17- £23 was quite pricey
Table for 2 was too close to the next table. There was just enough space to get through (maybe 30cm) Not ideal if you want a private romantic dinner. However the food was superb and the service was friendly and professional.
Fantastic service, friendly and couldn't do enough to make our time their perfect. Thank you.
Great Restaurant. We enjoyed very much the experience.
