What an absolutely beautiful building! I've been here quite a few times and the food was fantastic.
They have a huge outdoors garden which is great in the summer time, and the bar is separated from the main restaurant which is nice. If going here for a Sunday dinner, I'd definitely recommend booking or coming early in the day. If you prefer an evening roast, the majority of meats have gone by 6/7.00pm which is a shame!
Really friendly and welcoming staff.
Hangleton Manor is an impressive looking, grade two listed building which is a breath of fresh air when the majority of other establishments in the area look a little......well dangerous.
Built in the mid 16th Century, the place is extremely popular for wedding receptions which is fine if you're getting married or attending the wedding but not if you happen to pop in for a nice quiet bite to eat and are swamped by 200 people in their posh frocks. Might be worth phoning ahead if you are going with a group to make sure you don't clash.
Food wise, the menu is huge and has pretty much the same content as a pub where the menu is laminated but is twice the price here. I'm sure its all better produce etc but it still is a bit pricey. £9 for a Sunday Roast is too much for me. That said, you won't find a better atmosphere for miles around to enjoy your meal so I guess its worth the extra couple of pounds. The garden in the summer is out of this world and once in there, you won't want to leave!
A very popular family destination, Hangleton Manor is one of the oldest buildings around and benefits from a large, well taken care of beer garden that draws the crowds in larger months. It's come a long way in the last couple of years, with a lovely fresh refurb that is in keeping the original charm, a new food menu, and staff that seem a lot friendlier and accomodating than in the past.
Amongst the choices on tap are Hofbrau, Peroni, Guinness and Blackthorn Cider. Real ales include Hall & Woodhouse Tanglefoot / Badgers First Gold real ales and seasonal changes. If you really like the Tanglefoot then you should also try their award winning Tanglefoot Ale pie. Sunday lunch with Turkey or Beef and all the trimmings is very popular so I'd make an early appearance!
Having not been in this place for over ten years when , to be honest, it was quite a grotty boozer I couldn't believe how this place has changed.
The pub has been completely refurbished and is now a bar and restaurant. I went there with a large group for a set menu Christmas meal - and have to say that it was delicious ! Really impressed with the quality of the food. Place was packed (not sure what it would be like if it wasn's Christmas) and so service was a little on the slow side but no worse than any other restaurant at this time of year. I'm sure at quieter times it would be better.
Definitely one to recommend.
The food has really really gone down hill. The restaurant has changed hands numerous times during the last few years, and each time there is a small hope the food will go back to its excellent standards of 2007/2008. However, this is yet to materialize. The service is lack-lustre in the restaurant. I had a Christmas meal there at Christmas 2011 and it had clearly been microwaved. The meat reminded me of primary school dinner. Awful.
The bar is nice to sit in, but the service is blunt and the drinks desperately over-priced. Just avoid it.
We went here for the first time this week. It is a lovely building and the atmosphere is excellent, staff friendly and efficient. I enjoyed my meal as did my companions but as another reviewer has mentioned it is a bit pricey, particularly for the size of the portions. I have been wavering between the 3 star rating and the four star and I have come down on the lower rating only because of the pudding. I ordered the Apple and Blackberry Crumble from the specials board and was advised by the waitress that actually it was only Apple Crumble as "It arrived with no blackberries in it" Arrived from where? I felt a bit let down that something on the specials board appeared to have been bought in from an outside source but chose to have it anyway. It wasn't all that! Not very special at all! I would definitely go again however there is a great deal to recommend it.
Essentially good(ish) pub food set in a surprisingly historic and 'sympathetically' renovated manor house set in a modern housing estate. The food isn't spectacular but it's acceptable, and the menu of the usual pastas, salads, and meat dishes suits a group of varied palates. Open fires in most dining areas and a pleasant dark wood panelled bar make it a bit more special.
I visited this restaurant a couple of years ago and the food was fantastic, however i visited on 14/11/09 and it has obviously changed hands. The food was cold and bland the service was appalling and this restaurant just does NOT offer value for money. Its is so dissapointing as the restaurant is in such a lovely tudor building. We did have a nice bottle of red wine this is the reason i have given it 1 star. As a patron of many restaurants i would strongly advise not visiting this one.
Very good English pub food. Excellent roasts. Reasonably good service. Good choice of ales and lagers. Open log fire. Generally nice selection of specials. Make sure you book if visiting on the weekend as it gets very busy.
