Had I not driven for five hours to reach this establishment, and arrived at 7.45pm, I would have walked out. On arrival I enquired as to the availability of food. Food was available but only on the basis of room service. When questioned why, I was informed that the restaurant had to be booked in advance. The first time of... More

The experience is one not to be missed when it comes to being totally looked after from arrival to departure. This was our second visit and it was even better than the last time. The very warm welcome we received and the constant attention to detail in meeting our needs was first class. The room was very clean and as... More

Lloyds food is simply stunning, always excellent and often a few surprises along the way, Jules always has a... More

From arrival to departure you will be assured of a warm welcome and very high service. Our room was spotlessly clean, warm and very comfortable. Dinner is an absolute treat with fantastic food served nice and hot and with a seamless service. We can hardly wait to return, already booked!

We hadn't stayed for over six years......but will not leave it so long before we return! Our room had recently been redone, and was very beautifully decorated..(not that it wasn't before!). We also had a peek at some of the other rooms and would have been more than happy to be in any of them, all very tastefully thought out... More

Had a meal for my Husband's Birthday in November. All I can say is praise be for somewhere local where the food is exceptional, the Service warm, friendly and efficient and a good time was had by all - well, both of us! The diningroom is a bit dark and the meal and wine are expensive but a real treat... More

Nine of us (six adults, two young people and a child) had a fantastic meal for my in-laws 50th wedding anniversary. The food was creative and frankly excellent. The "narration" of the sweets by the chef was a highlight! Can't comment on the accommodation as we went for an evening meal only but it was genuinely fabulous!
