On our second night staying at the Fancourt Hotel we had dinner at Henry White which is located on the estate. Henry White is housed in the original manor house which is steeped in history. The experience starts when entering the manor house. Our waitress Amore was nothing short of phenomenal in her knowledge of the menu, wines etc. My... More

I left my choice of starter and main course to the chef and was not disappointed. A seafood risotto as a starter proved to be tasty and well presented as was the main course, medallions of beef. Attentive service rounded up a very positive picture!

Rather limited choices, but that is usually a good sign of quality... our dinner evoked some mixed feelings: the food was quite good but we sensed a lack of 'soul' in the preparation ... too much routine in the kitchen, perhaps. Staff was very professional, but did not seem to carry a sincere interest in what they were doing. The... More

Booked for my wife's birthday dinner, asking for something special as dessert for her; they asked for her name. All good so far. Warm welcome, nice ambiance and our order was taken promptly by a charming waitress. My scallop starter was a disgrace, taste-wise and visually. Tough, tasteless scallops, anaemic mushrooms and a bland, floury sauce smeared on the plate.... More

So often hotel fine dining disappoints but Henry White's did not. The setting in the separate historical manor house from the main Fancourt Hotel is lovely and creates a very different atmosphere.

This is more formal dining in The Manor House. The menu is rather short so you may struggle for your personal choice for more than 2 visits during a stay, but the food and service are excellent.
