Harden's says

A second restaurant overseen by Cliveden House executive chef André Garrett arrives at the impossibly grand Thames-view country house, named after the Astor family, who owned the house from the early 1900s.

Owner's description

The Astor Grill at Cliveden is located in the charming old stable block, which once housed Lord Astor’s most prized fillies. Adopting an equestrian theme in its décor, The Astor Grill is full of character offering a simple and informal approach to dining at Cliveden.

The menu is overseen by Executive Chef André Garrett and it focusses on a mixture of classic American and British dishes, many reminiscent of Cliveden’s diverse owners and residents. The name – The Astor Grill – recalls the Astor family, who owned the house from the early 1900s. William Waldorf Astor, America’s richest citizen, then gave the house to his son and daughter in-law, Nancy Astor, in 1906, and Cliveden became a vibrant social hub for guests as diverse as Charlie Chaplin, George Bernard Shaw and Winston Churchill.

The Astor Grill today is a cosmopolitan venue which is steeped in history, its romantic setting offers all the style and legendary hospitality that Cliveden is famous for, and it is the perfect place to escape and enjoy a late brunch, early lunch or relaxed supper. 

We look forward to welcoming you.

Pretty standard fare for a ‘grill’ base...

"Pretty standard fare for a ‘grill’ based cafe/restaurant and probably overwhelmed by the surrounding gardens and buildings which are spectacular. Not a destination place but nice enough for lunch - although the outside space was more inviting than that inside."

Very Good
* Based on a three course dinner, half a bottle of wine, coffee, cover charge, service and VAT.

Limited and mixed feedback on Cliveden’s one-year-old ‘dressed down’ option in the Stable Block. For fans it’s “a hidden gem”, tipped for either a “family lunch” or “business meal just off the M4”, but for foes “overpriced with rubbish service”.

For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
