This wonderful place is situated in a Victorian manor house.
Surrounded by 16 acres of Surrey countryside, Hartsfield Manor is a four-star Victorian property boasting elegant interiors and a garden terrace.
I had a romantic dinner here. The menu was as follows.
Starter: chicken liver pate with toast bread fingers and red onion jam. Well, the toast was nice crispy outside and soft inside, a perfect thing. The pate was a little dull, I would have made it a little spicier with something, for example green peppers. And would have cooked the red onion jam a little longer with a little more honey and balsamic vinegar. The lettuce was flavourless, I would’ve used a little dressing on it.

The main course
Chicken breast supreme wrapped in bacon with red wine jus
You may think that this was a simple chicken breast. But no. It was full of flavours from the bacon and spices like salt and black pepper. It was tender at the same time. The vegetables were cooked with simple spices like salt a black pepper, minimum. Unlike similar dishes in London hotels vegetables were flavourful.
Third course was warm chocolate browney with vanilla ice cream.
I’ve never heard about warm browney, you can have cold and a kind of hard browneys in coffee shops. I always considered them forgettable. But not this one.
I lliked the warm chocolatey flavour with the cold vanilla ice cream splashed over with chocolate sauce.
If I have to summarize the menu, I would say it had an outstanding quality.
