I had heard magnificent reviews about Hayfield manner over the past couple of months and finally an opportunity came up to stay here last week. It's stunning with a pleasant ambiance and very mannerly staff however, the only let down was the food. I'm not one to complain but this has to be mentioned. When i order a Caesar salad... More

First class from the moment we entered the reception area. Attentive and friendly staff and visit finished off with an excellent lunch in a cosy restaurant.

Wonderful meal and friendly staff who were more than happy to help with drink suggestions to round off the meal. The menu choice was good. Food served was first class and the staff attentive without being intrusive. Would recommend for a special occassion.

The most tasteful lamb I have ever had. Was told it was from a farm only 15 miles away and never frozen! Staff was very attentive to our every need.

So, breakfasts are really good, no complaints there. And service at both breakfast and dinner is excellent. But the food at dinner is really terrible. They make a big deal about "silver service" but what that means is that your food comes to you absolutely "nuked." My husband's "rare" steak was atrociously overcooked. My vegetarian meal was crusty and grey... More

I am surprised and baffled as to how your dining experience... More

My husband and I came here for dinner. I have a dietary restriction that was identified to the wait staff. Our food was brought out incorrectly. When asked, one waiter informed us that we had the correct food even after our concern was mentioned. Later on after dinner, we went to look at the menu for dessert and come to... More
