My boyfriend and I went to this restaurant on recommendation for a special occasion and were extremely excited by the lovely appearance and good reviews. Everything was fine until we were served our main courses - we both had the same chicken dish - which was completely raw. We sent it back and then received the same chicken we were... More

We drove 21 miles to this restaurant which was recommended by a friend and it was well worth it. A classy interior with superb service and very authentic traditional Italian food. A great and varied menu with good wines to accompany. This is the best Italian restaurant we have eaten at in England. Grazie Molto.

It was a business lunch and the restaurant was quiet mid-week. With several staff, not surprising the service was pretty good. Food quality was very good - would have expected a lunchtime menu. Setting is quite good and I suspect very popular on summer evenings.

Amazing views over the lake but was expecting a bit more authentic Italian food. We were there for daughters 21st meal, 6 of us altogether. We arranged our own balloons and table decs as they would not organise them. I ordered the Duchessa Chicken which was cooked in a white wine and cream sauce and other half had lasagne which... More

We ate here some time ago when it was called the Kingfisher and I vowed never to return! Some friends said give it a try new owners have transformed it. They certainly have and in every department. The lady who met us was cheerful and accommodating, she showed us to our table and the waitresses arrived to take our drink... More

My wife and I ate here to celebrate our Wedding Anniversary and we were stunned just how nice it was. The setting overlooking Sheepy Lake is beautiful. From the moment we were seated to the moment we left we felt extremely welcome and the food was amazing ! A great deal of choice for both meat eaters (me) and Vegetarians... More
