About The Dining Room
The Dining Room Dinner:
The Dining Room delights all senses and serves dinner Wednesday to Sunday.
Executive chef Niall Keating draws inspiration from many different cuisines, including Korean, Japanese and classic French. Resulting in menus that balance contemporary and classic styles in terms of ingredients and presentation.
Our Sommelier Dan Davies will expertly match wines to accompany each course should you wish.
Afternoon Tea in the Lounge:
Afternoon Tea is served daily 15.00 - 17.00
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.
Everything was perfect, thank you to all involved.
Wonderful place with perfect service I had a fantastic afternoon tea
Lovely place with plenty of room to relax.
A very big thank you to everyone that contributed to us have an absolutely amazing day, we had our Festive family Christmas meal yesterday and everyone had a wonderful time, all the staff were so friendly and helpful, the Christmas trees and decorations were fabulous, it all added to us having a very special day, thank you. Happy Christmas to you all. Best wishes, Carole Lenehan.

We all thoroughly enjoyed our family get together for afternoon tea. The staff could not have been more helpful and remembered it was a birthday celebration which made it really special.The food was fresh and delicious and a perfect balance of choice between savoury and sweet . We could not fault the experience and would definitely recommend to family and friends. Thank you .
What a beautiful place! My friend and I had a fantastic afternoon tea one of the best we have had!( afternoon tea is our hobby!😊) A truly magnificent manor house and gardens.Lovely atmosphere and friendly staff .We will certainly be returning again for afternoon tea and a visit to the spa.Thankyou for a memorable afternoon.
Service was exceptional and staff very helpful, would not hesitate to recommend to others.
What a fantadtic afternoon. The perfect setting for a relaxing afternoon with goid friends. The staff were attentive and made us feel very welcome. Afternoon tea was lovely..plenty of beautiful treats and indulgent. Definitely planning a return visit..next time wrather may be more forgiving to take advantage for exploring the stunning grounds.
We were absolutely delighted at the immaculate service, delicious tea and very friendly, helpful staff. Everyone enjoyed themselves very much. A big thank you from the group.
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.
Excellent as always..
Relaxing and enjoyable afternoon tea, in lovely surroundings with great service.
Very enjoyable - food and service excellent
We visited Whatley Spa for afternoon tea so this is no reflection on Niall. The food was nice but nothing really stood out. We booked afternoon tea as it was a Mitchelin restaurant and thought something would wow us but nothing did. There was no atmosphere in the dining room and would have been better served in the lounge, bar or outside on the patio.
Delightful setting and delicious afternoon tea. A real treat.
Lovely time celebrating a friends 40th. Although I asked for candles in her cakes and that didn’t happen which was a shame as we’d planned to play happy birthday. I thought the bottle of prosecco was very over priced as I didn’t think £40 for a bottle is reasonable. I’ve been to other spas where they ask £30 a bottle which is more reasonable at roughly £7.50 per glass. It wasn’t very easy to find the right entrance though so signage could be better. Other than that we had a nice time.
Setting idyllic Rooms; comfort, style, clean with gorgeous views What makes Whatley special & standout from top Hotel/Spas? Staff Everyone from managers to cleaners are friendly, happy, relaxed, willing to go the extra mile to ensure one has everything to make your stay perfect in every way My dream place for the gardens & staff But don't all rush there I want to return soon & need a room!
The service for food was slow, in fact the people on the table next to us walked out as they had been waiting over an hour for food- the staff were lovely however they weren’t enough of them . Food was delicious
A must, amazing and imaginative food, welcoming, professional and friendly staff and a relaxing and beautiful traditional country atmosphere- all that is wonderful about Wiltshire and England!
MARK EDWARDS An anniversary experience for my wife and I. I have travelled all over the world eating in some amazing places, but few match the experience of eating at Whatley Manor. Form start to finish the experience was totally amazing, the staff were incredible and the food was the most exquisite I have eaten anywhere. The best dining experience ever - thank you!
Overall a very disappointing experience. The food was ok but nothing was truly outstanding, serving a course of bread is a bit of a joke given the price of the tasting menu and I've never, ever had a tasting menu that some courses were basically poor e.g. The lamb was not good, poorly seasoned with dull accompaniments, and the baba was inedible - sickly sweet with gravel! The staff tried hard but were clearly lacking in knowledge and handled both the dissatisfied American customers and the lady with an allergic reaction to garlic very poorly. Why when the Americans asked for a wine recommendation was the sommelier not called for instead of an East European waitress offering her, v unconvincing, personal preference? The ambience of such an austere room is also very disappointing - overall not worth the cost, not a patch on Hospital Road, The Ledbury or La Trompette.
My daughter and I has afternoon tea, what can I say, it was superb. The whole experience could not be faulted and the food was excellent. We shall be back.
Beautiful hotel. Afternoon tea did not match expectations. Sandwiches were unimaginative. Tea arrived a good 20minutes before food therefore was cold when food arrived. Did not feel value for money.
