Along with your relaxing one-night getaway, you’ll also be treated to a delightful dining experience in Esseborne’s Courtyard restaurant.

Pre-dinner drinks and canapés will be served in the bar or on the patio, followed by a marvellous meal, accompanied by delicious home-made bread and a selection of wines in the dining room. Coffee and petit fours in the lounge will finish off this wonderful evening. Dining al fresco will also be an option in the summer, so you can soak up the sun whilst indulging in your meal.

Esseborne Manor, Andover, Hampshire

Alex from Purchasing, August 2019

There was nothing to fault with our stay at Esseborne Manor – the staff were friendly, the food was amazing and the room was lovely. Upon arrival we were informed that we had been upgraded to the Honeymoon Suite, free of charge, which was a nice touch to start our stay. The room had everything you would need for a comfortable stay and even had a Jacuzzi Bath! Tea and Scones were served between 3pm and 5.30pm, we walked down to reception at 3.30pm and were shown to the lounge area. The tea and scones were then brought through for us to enjoy. After this, we explored the grounds and then got ready for our seven course taster dinner. We booked this in for 7.30pm and were welcomed in the bar area with some nibbles and a member of staff took our drink order. All seven courses were delicious and we were able to experience dishes we would not normally order, this ranged from grilled hispi cabbage and bacon to crispy pigs head. Not to worry if you are vegetarian as they have an alternative menu that also looked very appetising. After dinner, we retreated back to our room and tested out the Jacuzzi bath before bed. This was a great addition to the room and made the stay stand out from any other short break. The next morning we had a wonderful full English breakfast before heading home. All in all a great experience and I would definitely recommend it to anyone that wants a relaxing stay in the countryside.

Top Tip
You can add specially selected wines to accompany the tasting dinner menu if you want to add to the experience further.

We had a blast! Went with my partner and firstly we were received with scones and tea in the beautiful garden. The room had lovely views and was really nice decorated. 7 course dinner was absolutely delicious (more than we expected) and we ordered the wine tasting which was really good too! Just a point to change would probably be the decoration from the dining room, which was a bit old.

WOW! My wife and I experienced the 1 night Gourmet Escape to Esseborne Manor on Saturday 11th May. First impression: what a lovely little manor house tucked away in a pretty part of the country. Lovely clean and comfortable rooms. Prosecco, tea and gorgeous baby scones (with jam and cream) on the patio when we arrived. My wife thoroughly enjoyed her hot stone massage with Joanna before our 7-course, taster evening meal. The meal. Wow. What an experience. We loved every course. Stand-out memory for me was the pig’s head (not the whole thing thank goodness!) with a cold mustard sorbet - a fab combination! We really appreciated the thought and effort that went into the meal planning, preparation and presentation. Very attentive and friendly service throughout. Thank you Ian and Dennis and your Teams for a delightful experience. We booked via an Activity Superstore gift, although you can book direct with the hotel for the same price. Eric & Fran

We had a fantastic time. The room was clean and bed very comfortable. The scone tea on our arrival was very good and the evening 7 course tasting was superb. Just the right amount of food and not to feel full. Each course was delicious the flavours exceptional. It was good to try different food that you wouldn’t normally try. Opens you up to experience different tastes. The wine was also an experience in its self trying different countries and regions which we wouldn’t normally have done. A lovely night away

I was given the gourmet stay as a birthday present from family members and I visited in late November.The Manor is a very old building so more oldie worldie than the more modern mirrors and chrome hotels. Checking in went smoothly and I was given the Newbury room which was large and comfortable.The bathroom seemed out of place as it was big and ultra modern with a huge air bubble type bath and equally huge shower. The water was pipping hot at all times. The only downside to the room was the lighting as all lights were either ecofriendly or very low wattage, meaning I had to sit right under one to read. Tea and scones, with a glass of proseco, were served in the bar area and very tasty. My dinner was the 7 course taster menu and it was EXCELLENT!! By the time I finished the last course I was feeling very full. Breakfast had a range of choices but I was still feeling full so had a small meal. I would recommend Esseborne Manor to anyone considering a stay.
