“We visited the Tasting Room when we recently stayed at Stanford Hills Estate and we were not disappointed. Although rustic, this added to the ambience of the area. The food was excellent and the local wine was also out of the top drawer. We were served immediately upon arrival and the manageress was in attendance. She gave us her most undivided attention informing us about what’s on the menu and what she could recommend. When our meal came we thoroughly enjoyed it. It was worth the visit.”
“First class food in the most lovely setting. Service was really good. Very family friendly with kiddie play area and boats!” 

“Had a super chilled lunch in an idyllic country setting with a stunning view. Had sundried tomato Aubergine gnocchi which was packed with flavour which is exactly what I was after and hubby had the trio of sliders which was also super tasty and generously sized. The resident dogs took us for a walk past the vineyard afterwards which was a perfect ending to a perfect outing.”
