Given our committed Chef de Cuisine has a near-obsessive passion for cooking outdoors, it seems unfair to keep him cooped up in the kitchen all year round, so we have a purpose built new feasting ‘The Manor Shelter BBQ’ a vibrant and unique oasis in the secret garden of Westone Manor Hotel, to provide the ultimate relaxing setting.

Working in harmony with nature, our menus change frequently in line with the seasons as our chefs work with local produce from local suppliers to create delicious dishes, mixing modern techniques and trends with traditional recipes, all prepared in front of your naked eyes. You can be assured that your al fresco dining experience will be both memorable and flavoursome.

Our outside dining has extended beyond the typical summer months, with our terrace along with the new BBQ shelter being used as early as March and through to sun-filled late October it can accommodate in excess of 150 diners.

It offers a great al-fresco

    Lovely quiet surroundings food was very good and great access for disabled customers, just shocked at the lack of customers feel like I’m missing something can’t believe more people from the lovely surrounding estate don’t use this place unless the owners have upset people.

    Outdoor dining was pleasant, grounds well kept. Menu a little pricey, restrictive offers in dietary needs. Disappointingly you were unable to accommodate brown bread for a sandwich.! As unable to eat white bread. So ordered chicken Caesar salad, was nice but came with “white” croutons (doh!) and too much sauce. I did ask if this could be feedback.

    We have dined here several times and it's the same experience every time. The food is really great, the building is beautiful but the staff don't seem to know what they're doing. It's a shame because it's quite expensive and you do get very nice meals. The management and the service staff however are quite unprofessional. With a bit of tweaking and maybe extra training this hotel could easily be a 5 star rating.

    Ordered popadoms as a starter at 2.25. Arrived 45 minutes later with the main course. Consisted of 1 greasy popadom and mango chutney. Not great. My curry arrived in the smallest pot with a quarter of an inch of grease floating on top. 5 small pieces of meat all for nearly £16. My wife’s lamb shank came nestled on top of a small portion on vegetables and mashed potatoes and at close on £18 was not up to scratch. We have dined here before and was impressed but won’t be going back after this visit.

    Food took ages to come out and when it finally did the portion sizes were extremely small. Then when one of the waiters asked us how everything was I told him the portions were tiny and he replied “they are normal portions” and walked off (not helpful). The food didn’t taste great and it is extremely overpriced for the small amount you get. The place is not suitable for children, it was my sons birthday but it is not a child friendly hotel. Such a shame as it’s a nice place but the staff let it down.

    Food was over cooked, I had ribs but they were so over cooked you couldn’t actually get any meat of the bone, husband had fish and the batter was difficult to cut through. Beautiful gardens, lovely area to eat in but the food just wasn’t up to standard

    Dining as a table of 7 Food and drinks were slow at getting out, all our food arrived at different times which means we didn’t actually eat together our sides arrived 10 minuets before mains arrived. Food was not great, Pizza was like a cold bit of cardboard and the mash potato was powdered. We also asked for a cloth to wipe the table down 3 or 4 times and never got it. The waitress’s were lovely however inexperienced. We understand delays due to table service/covid however it was not really busy so would expect our food to arrive all together. We did ask for refund on the pizza however there was real apology.

    Lovely venue, grounds secluded and quiet, staff lovely and helpful. Service not helped by the app ordering. Can understand some comments on slow service and some customers aren't aware it is primarily order by phone not attended - communication and attention needs improvement Reserving by phone appalling rang and was on hold for 15 minutes lost my custom that weekend Food average, at the moment, limited and appeared not much actual cuisine and scope for the chef. Haven't tried the BBQ menu Could be great. Would recommend again but hope it improves as we come out of lock down

    The menu & decor needs modernising, very 80’s in presentation and choice. Lack of allergen information, the order at table function was woeful, and the guest wifi unconnectable! The service was friendly, yet basic, was asked to pay when the drinks arrived (and the drinks order was wrong) ahead of the food arriving. The food itself was acceptable. If you want a cheap drink & bar snack in the bar garden, this is probably the place for you! Given the current covid restrictions it was disappointing that there wasn’t an obvious place to check in and be seated. Face coverings appeared to be optional for the staff. All in, some key standards not in place, maybe if we visit for a meal in the future the management will have taken note.

    The garden is lovely. The food is nice enough. The service is atrocious. If I hadn't been before and known to order via the app, I think we might still be sitting there. There is so much potential in this venue but clearly nothing spent on staff training and atrocious management.

    Apart from there being no-one there to seat us when we first arrived, we had a fantastic afternoon with lovely food & great service. It was a birthday meal & they were happy to oblige when I dropped cake off the day before & brought it out when asked. Food was delicious, although had a bit of a wait, but it was Sunday lunch & quite busy and we weren't in a rush, so wasn't a problem.

    Nice garden, friendly, efficient staff. The only vegan main option has no spuds/rice or side veg with it, only a basically lettuce leaf salad...why do so may chefs think all vegetarians/vegans are on a diet?
