Sandwiches- bread cut far too thick- fillings poor and tasteless and too little for the amount of bread . The whole tea was very badly presented - I do not expect to find savoury items on the same tier as sweet. I would expect to find more than two teabags in the large teapot, which resulted in very weak tea. Although the staff were pleasant they were not to be seen when they were needed. Overall we found the experience extremely disappointing. You’re system is forcing me to give stars for food & drink, service and value for money. However I do not consider they warrant any stars

We attended the excellent 4 chef, 8 Michelin ⭐ dinner on 15th July. The food was sublime, the wines perfectly matched and the service first class. A memorable evening.

I took my mum and dad for afternoon tea as part of an early Father's Day present. The staff were absolutely superb - the best example of good service. The food was faultless and the range of teas was the best I have seen. It was a lovely afternoon, and just a shame the weather wasn't better as the manor has superb gardens.

I took two friends to Whatley Manor for the full afternoon tea at the weekend. We sat in the drawing room with a welcome fire roaring away and finally emerged about two and half hours later having enjoyed a superb tea. The food was beautifully presented with a delectable choice of sandwiches and we all agreed that the doughnuts filled with lemon curd were to die for . Our only dilemma was that we couldn't finish it all! This was no problen though as we were offered goody boxes to take away the remaining scones. The staff were extremely attentive and served us copious amounts of coffee!!!! My friends had never been to Whatley before and were very impressed with the beautiful hotel, the delightful gardens and of course the food! Would definitely recommend our experience to everyone.

We had a lovely evening, and found our visit to the kitchen for the chefs tasters very interesting. Although hesitant at first we were glad we did, we met Niall who was a very humble and pleasant young man and took the time to explain some of his tasters, I’m still surprised how calm the atmosphere was in the kitchen. The dining room was busier than expected but the staff were excellent and all very pleasant warm Characters which created a comfortable atmosphere. The food was of course, excellent.

Whatley Manor never disappoints. This time, my sister and I visited for Afternoon Tea. It was an absolute delight - relaxed, gentle, restorative. We enjoyed the sandwiches and cakes enormously; the staff, as always, were friendly, welcoming and helpful. The afternoon was made perfect by a walk around the beautiful gardens as Whatley snoozed in the late September sunshine. I still bask in the glow! Thank you everyone.
