    Dined on 21/6/2014
    The food was excellent, but we felt the menu offered less choice than last time we visited (Sept 2013). Service was adequate, not as polished as enjoyed before. There was a wedding reception in the hotel so perhaps this reflected on service expertise in the restaurant. Much less busy than expected, again perhaps due to the wedding, so many unused tables. We enjoyed the evening, but have enjoyed better there. We will give them another chance to "wow" us.

    unfortunately the food was disappointing. The children ordered the prawn cocktail and found it hard to eat because of all the chili in the sauce. Our party of 6 all found the main to be less than average. The meat was chewy, Yorkshire puds rock hard and vegetables uninspiring. All in all, less than average pub grub.

    The service here is very good , greeted straightaway and given the option to sit in the lounge and have a pre dinner drink or go straight to your table even when you are early . The ambience is calm and you feel you are not rushed . This is the second time I have been here for a special Occasion and I will definitely be returning. I love the pre course appetisers.

    Tipper
    Dined on 12/1/2014
    The pre-lunch drinks, before a roaring fire in the lounge, were excellent. We anticipated a fine Sunday lunch to follow, but were sadly disappointed. Prawn cocktail was far too sour to be pleasant. We then had roast beef or roast pork, but the meat was in both cases over cooked, and covered in tasteless gravy. The sticky toffee pudding had to be sent back because the bottom was burnt, but the replacement was little better. The iced raspberry parfait was so iced that it could hardly be eaten - clearly it had just come out of the freezer - but the chocolate gateau was very tasty. Our overall conclusion was that despite the grand and imposing setting, the standard of food and the standard of service were disappointingly low.

    On arrival we found that seating was already reserved in the lounge near the fire place for our party of eight. This set a good atmosphere for a very enjoyable and relaxing evening. Food orders were taken without any hassle and service at the table was professional and perfectly organised. After meal coffees and drinks were again taken in the lounge and allowed time for reflection on a very thoughtfully and tastefully prepared meal. The decorations were elegantly traditional and the ambiance timeless yet contemporary. Our whole party was impressed by the amount of effort the staff put into the service and the food. We'll certainly be back for more!

    We are a group of 7 ladies that lunch every 3 months and I chose Mary Green Manor for our Christmas get-together. A couple of us had been there previously for afternoon tea (again this was very good). We were given a round table which was great as we could all talk easily. We had a lovely lunch, the food was very good and there was plenty of it. The service was also great. After lunch we went into another room to have coffee. There were a number of people doing the same and the atmosphere was very jovial. We had a great afternoon and didn't leave until just before 5pm.

  • Not our best visit
    Carm
    Dined on 26/10/2013
    We have been several times before, this was our most disappointing visit. Service was the biggest let down. We arrived 15 minutes early and were seated In the bar. The drinks order was not taken for a while and then we were offered no top ups and they forgot the complimentary nibbles until I asked for them. We were then not seated until 8:35 which was far too late considering the table was booked for 7:30. The food was very good but considering the tardiness of being seated and drink service plates were cleared for each course before the whole party had finished. My choice of wine was unavailable and water was forgotten despite being requested several times. Overall not to the standard we would expect especially considering the cost.

    We visited the "Mary Green Manor" for our 22nd wedding anniversary as this was where we stayed the first night of our marriage (which was then called "The Moathouse") - we booked the restuarant through top table and was not dissapointed - the service/ food/ atmosphere was all fantastic and it felt like a real treat. Although it was a bit pricier than we would normally pay for a meal it was fully justified as it felt so special. :)

    You dont have to travel all the way to central London to have a proper 6 course tasting menu. All the right ingredients and perfect mix of dishes that fits the bill. I have been to many Michelin star places and they will charge £90- 100 for the same thing. Here you pay £48 which is very good value for money.Also the pairing of wine is only £27 which has 6 glasses of full sized glass! You can you say !! If you live in Brentwood, dont miss this gem.

  • Marygreen Manor -Good value
    Kash
    Dined on 7/8/2013
    The Marygreen Manor is an impressive looking hotel and the Tudor Restaurant has a lot of character and ambience about it from the Elizabethan era. The menu had some interesting selections , in particular for vegetarians. The quality of the food was mixed - the beef was outstanding but the pre-starter combination of mushroom soup, chicken and octopus a little odd. The wine list was very good and not unreasonably priced. The service was good but a little slow in parts because there was only one waiter on duty.At about £50/head the dinner was not cheap but well priced when compared with other far inferior places in London. We will go again for that special occasion

    Dined on 6/8/2013
    On arrival, we were immediately struck by the beautiful interior which was matched by the tranquillity and beauty of the garden. We then adjourned to the dining hall which is a small Tudor great hall. Wonderful architecture and beautifully laid out, it made you feel that this was going to be special. It did not disappoint. Every mouthful was a delight, I had Diver Scallops and lobster followed by venison, which was delightful and would recommend to all food lovers. The service improved significantly from its initial slowness. We had fantastic time, and that made it worth it but, with drinks (a cocktail a bottle of wine and large brandy each) the bill was £200 including tip, not cheep but worth it for a special occasion.

    Food, service and surroundings was either very good or excellent. The layout is also very good with a lounge area for pre dinner drinks, formal dining room and a further lounge for post dinner drinks. I have been to the Marygreen many, many times over the years but this was my first mid-week and I would not repeat that - my wife and I were the only people in the entire restaurant and one of two couples in the lounge afterwards which was a great shame.

    Had a meal with my girlfriend to celebrate a year together and was left with a bitter taste in my mouth, Food was average at best , fish overcooked and the spaghetti legumes greasy and limp, side vegetables were microwaved and not even seasoned or a trickle of butter was added , beer root Concass were like boulders of undercooked under seasoned disappointments . And the starters took 45 mins to reach us in an empty restaurant. very very poor . on the plus side the pigeon was spot on and the wine list very good , Don't even get me started on the fanned melon and mushroom soup amuse Bouche !

    SEB1807VIP
    Dined on 11/5/2013
    4 of us dined last Saturday and the restaurant was very beautiful. The building and its original features gave the evening a real sense of occasion. They have a good selection of wines and enjoying an aperitif then later on coffees, in the loung, was very good. That said, the bill was more than some Michelin starred establishments we have eaten at and whilst the service was pleasant, it was very 'hit and miss' and the quality of the dishes was not consistently high, which is what I would expect when spending £100 per head on average. Desserts and cheeseboard were both very enjoyable. I would possibly go back to dine but it would be at a push, however, I am very keen to try afternoon tea there as I hear that it is very good indeed.
