The terrace is lovely for dainty cakes and scones during afternoon tea.
Whatever you like, with an apron thrown on top. There are wellies to borrow (as originally sported by the cast of The Apprentice who filmed here).
The restaurant at Eckington Manor has a farm-to-table ethos and is open for dinner on Wednesday to Saturday evenings; the home-grown and locally produced delights are served in the light-filled and laid-back dining room above the reception. If you arrive on a sunny day head to the outdoor terrace for lunch or afternoon tea, available Wednesday to Sunday. Evening meals for groups can be arranged in advance. Breakfast includes home-made, home-grown everything – from muesli, bread, preserves and marmalade to tasty eggs and award-winning breakfast sausages. Much of the meat is from the farm. If you'd like to get more involved and cook yourself, Eckington Manor Cookery School is located above reception. Courses include alfresco dining, Christmas feasts, breads from around the world and authentic Thai dishes, but make sure to reserve before you arrive.
Eckington Manor is fully licensed, and there’s an informal bar area close to the restaurant, which is popular for pre-dinner drinks on Wednesdays to Saturdays. A fully-stocked honesty bar is also on offer.
