Lords of the Manor Hotel

Posted on: November 11, 2010     |     2 comments

Lords of the Manor is situated in the Cotswold countryside, in Upper Slaughter and has been awarded 4AA red stars and 3AA Rosettes for its cuisine. 

Driving through the gates to the front door was picturesque.  When arriving at reception the staff made us feel so welcome, giving us details about the surrounding areas and activities we could do and see around the hotel. 

We stayed in the luxurious Lords bedroom, which was 1 of 5 different styles that the hotel had to offer.  This was the largest room provided but with garden view and a separate suite it was well worth the extra cost.

We visited the cocktail lounge for pre-dinner drinks and the staff detailed every product they had on the menus, it was obvious that the staff had had extensive training on wines, with an impressive wine list of over 200 bottles.

The food was just as impressive as the service, we decided to choose from the A la carte menu, for starters I had Terrine of Lobster, set in Tomato with Baby Leeks, Cornish Mids and Tarragon Mayonnaise. For the main course I chose the Sirloin of Cotswold Longhorn Beef, Fricassee of Hereford Snails and Broad Beans, Cep Puree, Red wine Sauce and to finish such a splendid dining experience I ordered a selection of local & British Cheeses with grape chutney & homemade biscuits

For wines we had Chateau Teyssier Clos Nardian Bordeaux and Petaluma Shiraz which were highly recommended by our head waiter and both perfect for the choice of food. 

The service was second to none, our glasses were never empty and the atmosphere was very relaxed.  One of the countless exceptional points about the dining experience was at the end of service the Executive Head Chef, Matt Weedon, visited each table and introduced himself, speaking about his career and the dishes he and his team prepared for us.  He talked about the Michelin star that the restaurant received in 2009 and how it is the greatest achievement of his and his teams’ career, I couldn’t agree more.   

Staying in the hotel was one of the best night’s sleep due to the peaceful and relaxing location.  After breakfast the following morning we walked around the grounds, which was a perfect ending to a wonderful weekend staying at the Lords of the Manor. 

This was my first visit to the hotel and certainly won’t be the last.
