I have had a lot of afternoon tea in my time and this was without doubt one of the best I have EVER had. As it was the weekend (when extra items are served) we started with warm canapés – the beetroot and goat’s cheese macaroon was amazing. Then came the cake stand – beautifully arranged with eye catching cakes, 3 types of scones (plain,cheese and fruit) and tasty savouries (far more interesting than your standard finger sandwiches). As if that wasn’t enough – scrummy vanilla milkshakes and homemade custard creams were added to the delicious spread. The scones were ten out of ten – crisp on the outside and light and fluffy within. The highlights for me were the coronation chicken vol au vent and the little passion fruit cornet. Staff were top class too – as two of us had birthdays they decorated two plates with ‘Happy Birthday’ and added a couple of divine chocs. All first class!

Peel’s restaurant is located within Hampton Manor Hotel, and it’s three rosettes does not do justice to both the service and food on offer. The knowledgeable enthusiasm of the staff, the quality of the food and the service is simply outstanding. Without doubt, the combination makes this restaurant the best place I have ever had the privilege to dine in. Even top restaurants in London would be hard pushed to match either the service or food, but none could match the combination. Add to that the desire to have relaxed guests – there is nothing formal or stuffy about this place – you will be equally welcome in DJ or jeans. The tasting menu (seven course personally recommended, and the four course, not yet tried) takes the diner on a journey of wondrous tastes and textures. The quality of even the amuse bouches leaves one wondering why some of them have not made it onto the main menu. You simply cannot do better than this restaurant for a relaxing evening with the best of service and food. Where is their Michelin star? Surely cannot be too far away now.

From the beautiful setting, warm welcome and great menu and wine choice to the fabulous food, every part of the dining experience was faultless.
I eat out a lot and am very fussy, but this meal and the service was faultless. The restaurant is a must for anyone who likes Michelan-style food (comparable to Purnels/Edmunds) and excellent service in a relaxed country house setting (the restaurant itself is beautiful).
