A stunning 18th-century Queen Anne manor house in the lush Worcester countryside, The Elms offers diners AA Rosette-awarded cuisine in a variety of family-friendly settings. Enjoy light breakfasts and simple meals on the terrace or patio, while the Brookes Restaurant offers a more formal setting for modern tasting menus and traditional afternoon teas.
The Elms menu offers versatile all-day options, with rustic sandwiches filled with classic additions like smoked salmon and cream cheese, as well as other home-style dishes like beer battered fish and chips and vegetarian gnocchi. Moving into the Brookes Restaurant, there are modern fine dining treats, starting off with British flavours, seen with the Stowell Park venison tartare with quail's egg and sourdough. The bold, modern flavours continue with the mains, with roast squab pigeon served with potato pavé, red cabbage and chocolate.
Afternoon tea at The Elms in Worcester is a great example of classic British indulgence. Delicate finger sandwiches are served alongside home-baked cakes and sultana scones, with loose leaf teas and even glasses of fine champagne. A diverse wine list and range of fine spirits is also served from the bar.
With dedicated menus for children, The Elms is a a versatile choice at this luxurious countryside retreat. Central Worcester is a 25-minute drive away.

Customer reviews for The Elms
((*** 13 February 2019 by Clive from Droitwich
Slightly confused service with 3 different members of staff attending to us, we were not asked what type of bread we would like for our sandwiches, when we did request brown, we were told the chef had already prepared the sandwiches so we would have to have what was done. Tray of sandwiches poorly presented with cheap ingredients, no proper salad and no salmon at all which was disappointing. Cakes then arrived which were fairly average, tea and coffee provided but no refills which you would expect for the prices charged. Glass of champagne was very nice but expensive at £10. So overall pretty poor and very overpriced for what was provided, decent location but we weren’t given the choice of where to have our afternoon tea so we were stuck near the entrance. Maybe it’s because we had vouchers given to us for Christmas but we would have expected a lot better. The simple fact is that we have had better cream teas in garden centres for a fraction of the price! For me personally this is the second visit I have had to the Elms, the first one was a few years ago and was just as disappointing, I don’t intend to return.

Have been to Elms before - long time ago. Booked a family Christmas lunch for 9 people. The venue is beautiful although felt the driveway let's the first view of the property down - broken, lumpy and rough surface. The service and the food was excellent. We all agreed we would go there again.

Very disappointing. We rang to book afternoon tea at 2pm and were pleased to get a 4.39 appointment,but,when we got there they knew nothing about it. We had to wait a while for the kitchen to get our sandwiches made and another wait for the scones and cakes. As this was a treat from friends we didn't want to make a fuss. The staff were very pleasant.

This is an outstanding restaurant. We ate here on two consecutive nights with slightly different menus. The choice was reasonable but there was something to please everyone. The fillet of beef was melt in your mouth, served imaginatively but not too 'messed about'. The food was served on hot plates, the wait was minimal and portion size good. I cannot recommend this restaurant and the whole hotel strongly enough.

Excellent range of starters, I felt spoilt for choice. I struggled with main courses as I don’t like mushrooms, cheese or rare meat. The cheer was very happy to cook my lamb to my liking and it was a winner! Desserts were all amazing. Service and environment were superb as usual
