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.

    Except for the weather it was a most enjoyable afternoon.My wife and I were given the choice of two tables to sit at.We sat by the window overlooking the lawns to the side of the hotel.After a glass of excellent champagne, finger sandwiches were then consumed.Fillings were delicious and the bread 'fresh as a daisy'. Please note the 'fillings' had been specifically chosen because I am a pescitarian.Then our waitress for the 'Afternoon Tea', so very polite and filled with personality, brought a three tiered cake stand, without a space on it, pilled high with sweet delicacies. Each cake/pastry was made to perfection and tasted even better than that. I had to order a second coffee for my wife and another pot of Earl Grey for myself. Please note I think the service on beverages could be better where drinks are offered on a 'top up' system.And if I were to choose next time I visit , more finger sandwiches and less 'cakes'. Anita and I spent a very enjoyable 90 minutes having our Anniversary Tea' at The Elms. Thank you.

    We went for Mother’s Day, as The Elms was a ‘special’ location for my mum and dad, when he was alive. It was quite a journey to get there but beautiful countryside.

    The welcome was good, but the champagne for the ladies, whilst included, was warm. Not nice. Service generally was whimsical and took a long time. To get drinks, to get noticed, to get menus, to get served. The staff were friendly but we had a succession of different staff serving us who clearly did not communicate with each other, so we were offered some things twice, or forgotten or both. “Would you like some more bread” umm, we haven’t had any yet. “Would you like a dessert menu?” “Would you like the dessert menu?” It may have been because we were located in a side room that created the problem.

    The food was good, without being outstanding, although the main course serving size was small.

    Paying the bill was a trial. Not sure why it wasn’t prepared when we were told that it was waiting for us at reception. Then there was a queue of people checking out, paying for spa treatments and for their meals. It may have been easier for everyone if we had paid at the table, which is more normal.

    We had a nice time, but we were in the mood for celebrating and we weren’t in a rush. With a different group with a more compressed timetable, it may have been different.

    We booked at table with our young son for Mother’s Day.
    We had a lovely meal with attentive but not over the top service, excellent food in beautiful surroundings.
    The venue had a very calming atmosphere and is ran with high standards throughout all areas.
    The bar areas and lounge are really nice places to relax in. The meal itself was excellent and the children’s menu was very well thought out too.
    We will certainly be booking again for another special occasion.

    There were a couple matters that we found irritating eg the maitre d tutoring a new member of staff on how to recognise fake ten and fifty pound notes. This should not have done when we were waiting to pay. We were also phoned that evening to see if we'd taken a blue coat away with us!! This really was unacceptable.

    Lovely Christmas feel to the hotel. Staff friendly and helpful. Bar a bit dark and dining room a bit bright and chilly. Food very good.

    Restaurant looks lovely after its makeover. Three of us went for the beef which was outstanding and I went for the cod, absolutely lovely. Would also recommend all the puddings, in particular the Banana cake, jam and ice cream, and the whiskey cake. Service was second to none as has always been the norm for us. Great place to have lunch.

    Willing, attentive but clearly nervous and inexperienced waitress. An excellent meal enjoyed by all.
    We're looking forward to the hotel being restored to its former glory with far less emphasis on children! The bar was more like a nursery with toddlers running around under the adoring gaze of parents! The seating was far to low, tired and worn. The ladies lavatory floor was covered in actual clods of mud (attributed to children) and looked appalling. A kind receptionist apologised and immediately swept it but it left a very poor impression. Roll on the revamp - in which case, we should be delighted to return!

    We didn't dine in the usual restaurant as it was being refurbished, but was put in a similar room which was just as nice. The food was amazing, very tasty and beautifully plated. The service was excellent, very friendly and curteous. An excellent experience.
