We have dined with them twice and both times we had great food and a great experience. The food is excellent and they have different specials on the board as well. This is a perfect place to have a romantic dinner with that special someone - especially in the winter since they have a fireplace - or to catch up... More

Been there many times, small family lunches, big dinner parties, friends getting together for a meal and a chat!! Has never been disappointed with the food. Good and attentive service! Always prepared to make little changes to a dish if you so require! To sit outside with that view.....what more can a person ask for?

We have dined at The Mount several times over the past 5-6 years, and I am sad to say that this lovely venue seems to be looking really neglected on the inside. That being said, the food is always delicious and good value for money, and the big plus is that corkage is free. The service is friendly and the... More

We decided to give this restaurant a try as it had been recommended. I was disappointed in the service and the food. Only after we had ordered, I discovered a menu in the distance that had the specials, out waiter had not bought these to our attention. The food I found average, nothing too exciting. But I am willing to... More

This place is known for it's hearty good food. The chef is well-known and runs a chef school. The venue is very nice in the summer and also in winter. Food is always good and the service not bad.
