I just want to say thank you so much to the amazing staff for making my sons surprise family lunch truly a special day.
Everything from the organisation to the food was exceptional. The staff could not have been any more helpful and attentive. They certainly made it a day to remember cannot thank you all enough and we will certainly be back.

Had family Sunday lunch for 14 for our Golden Wedding Anniversary. It was absolutely delicious. The food was piping hot as were the plates - no chance of the meal going cold while the vegetables were being served, which were cooked to perfection. The sweet trolley was to die for! It wasn’t fair having to walk past it to reach our table because by the time we got to the dessert I could only manage the fruit salad and there was so much more on offer. Richard, our waiter, was very attentive, amusing and nothing was too much trouble for him.

After the meal was over, he then proceeded to give our eldest grandson a lesson on wine pouring - much to his delight and everyone else’s amusement. The only disappointment on the day was the awful weather, but we had no control over that!
Thanks to everyone at the Cranleigh for a memorable afternoon.

We chose The Cranleigh to host our wedding reception after seeing several other venues and we are so glad we did. The function room is really impressive but not as impressive as Christine, Lisa and the staff who worked with us on the day.

Christine was so helpful in the run up to our day, and the staff on the day were so helpful and polite and aided our celebration to be a great evening. The food was great and the team set up the room with my decorations so the room looked fantastic.

Our special thanks go to Lisa, who was in charge on the day of our wedding - when my wedding cake still hadn't been delivered in time for the start of the reception, Lisa literally got in her car, sped around to the cake supplier and got my cake for us. "Above and Beyond" does not even begin to explain how much Lisa stands for, in terms of great service.

Thank you so much. 5 STARS to The Cranleigh

Your comments: I just wanted to thank everyone for the service, the food and for bringing mum's birthday cake out and singing happy birthday! The look on her face was priceless! She had never had this happen to her before, but secretly had wanted it to be her one day, so thank you!

Mum sends her thanks as well and we hope to see you soon

As per norm, all the Cranleigh staff were most helpful, courteous and friendly. They made all my party guests welcome and nothing was too much trouble. Excellent food and service. Would definitely recommend to anyone who wants a great night out. Thanks to one and all concerned.

Your comments: Ate here last night with good friends picked this day as Robert Craig was singing and he is fab. The food was absolutely delicious everyone's meal was served hot and portion size so filling! The staff are excellent and very attentive. Have eaten here before with no entertainment which obviously was a lot quieter but for me having entertainment was the icing on the cake! Will definitely be back!

Hi, my young children and extended family ate lunch there last Sunday 14/2 for a 70th birthday. Just wanted to say how well trained and attentive your waiting staff were. The waiters and waitresses were so polite, friendly and professional. I was very impressed. Dining with young children can often be stressful but the relaxed and friendly service meant we enjoyed our three courses. Please pass on my thanks to the team who are clearly well trained. They are a credit to the restaurant.

I don't know why but we've tried all the restaurants in Hornchurch and surrounding area but never tried The Cranleigh. My wife and I decided to give it a go and we're so pleased we did.
The restaurant does have an old fashioned quality feel about it with immaculate service and great waiter and waitresses who were really friendly.
The food was delicious, good portion size and served very hot. The dessert trolley was full of delicious sweets.
We have already booked to go back. My wife and I had a thoroughly lovely evening and would recommend it to anyone.
