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.
Bar manager very knowledgeable about his stock and willing to give advice. Waiting staff attentive and polite. Looking forward to visiting again.
Great food & service
Food was absolutely first class delicious, staff were very attentive and delightful.
Outstanding food served by friendly, efficient staff. Thank you.. Long may you offer Sunday lunches!
A perfect experience! Thank you
Amazing food and atmosphere!
Amazing staff, food was incredible! Overall was lovely and just above expectations
Staff were very attentive but not watching us like hawks however portions were slightly smaller than we would have liked for the price. Everything did taste fantastic though!
excellent food although the menu was the same each day we were there except Sunday.
Hard to fault. One of the best Sunday roasts. Very good Espresso Martini.
The most friendly and helpful staff we have ever come across in our years of traveling. Can highly recommend Merchants Manor as a venue to eat and stay.
The service we received from the restaurant staff was outstanding. They were really friendly and we felt thoroughly spoilt by the little touches, like talking to us about where the food had been foraged, and carrying our drinks from lounge area to restaurant. The food was absolutely delicious. A very unique menu, packed with flavour. However, portions were quite small (and I'm not a big eater!) Even after all 3 courses, I wasn't full - and my husband certainly wasn't. I would also comment that although I live not far from the hotel, the branding of Rastella does not at all represent the high quality experience it provides. I had always assumed it to be similar to that of a pizza chain-type restaurant. So was very pleasantly surprised with our visit. Now that I know what to expect I would recommend to friends.
Interesting menu, good quality ingredients cooked with skill and served with charm
Excellent service and food looking forward to coming again
We had the most delicious dinner. Thank you!!
A superb dining experience, very pleasant waiting staff & it was great to meet the amazing chef at the end of our meal. Excellent.
The service, food and wine were exceptional. Staff were knowledgeable about the menu, nothing was too much and we even had a visit from the chef who freely answered questions about our delicious food. A fantastic experience, we will most definitely be returning.
We had a fabulous three course meal here on Saturday. The service was great throughout the meal, the staff were attentive and nothing was too much trouble. All the food was beautifully presented and tasted great. The duck main course was my favourite. The chef came and spoke to us at the end of the meal which was a nice touch. We will be back !!
Delicious food - presented perfectly with staff who were very knowledgeable on the cooking and ingredients. Very enjoyable evening
It's been a very long time since I've encountered such exceptional customer service. Merchants Manor your team are just the best! Will, Jack, Lewis and Alice- you all made our visit very special. The food- wow! Locally sourced, imaginative,inventive and a chef that obviously has a passion for his craft. Our meals have been memorable. Lewis gave a description of each dish that had us wanting to order more than one meal! Everything we ordered surpassed our expectations. These are the things that make a difference . Thank you
A super Easter Sunday, made memorable by the lovely staff, service and food.
Everything was great 👍🏻 But an hour to wait for our main course was too long. £3 for a green leaf salad that arrives with no dressing is too much.
We were made really welcome. Thanks so much!
My sisters and I had the most wonderful time at Merchants Manor. We were very impressed with the excellent service, wonderful food and superb Spa treatments. We are planning our next visit already.
Jacuzzi could do with being separated from pool so could be warmer. Would be helpful to have a door handle on outside of room doors so they do not need to be slammed to shut them. Lewis is an asset to the hotel. Nothing is ever too much trouble. Thank you for a lovely relaxing stay.
