A frtrench restaurant with a chef and staff who really know what they are doing, and their lunches served from Tuesday to Saturday are incredible value, but more importantly that that the food is of the highest order. I have eaten at starred Michelin restaurants in the UK, France, in fact through Europe and The Great House compares very favorably.... More

Booked for an evening meal with family friends..The menu was varied with several fish options which are always welcome. My steal tartar starter was wonderful with a perfectly judged egg yolk bringing the whole dish together and the coffee crème brulee was gorgeous. As mentioned in other reviews the cheese board was stunning although my friend would have liked more... More

Chose this restaurent over our hotel restaurent which was quite a brave choice. Very much a french restaurent. Starter choice was limited and one dimensional.I am normally a big fan of starters and was very disapointed. I wish i had skipped starters. Main course was VERY good in a fancy cheffy way. Desert was excellant and wifey says the best... More

We both had 3 courses, coffee & a bottle of wine & it was just over £150 and worth every penny. The staff were very friendly & attentive & we will definitely be... More

Enjoyed a sumptuous meal here today. Lovely variety of flavours and textures in each dish. The pork literally 'melted in the mouth'. All food cooked impeccably, including all the veg. Extensive wine list. Very attentive service. Reasonably priced. Will definitely return.

This is the second time we have visited and the quality remains very high. Excellent tasting food in a lovely setting. The only thing it needs to hit the 5th star is slightly larger portions. I know it is usual for most High quality restaraunts to have small but tasty portions but the quality leaves you wanting just that little... More

Lovely attention to detail in both food and service. The best meal of our stay. The meal went off with a bang when a 70th birthday cake, arranged for me by my son, had a candle on top which exploded as planned, creating fun and interest all round the restaurant. It was a scrumptious chocolate torte with a birthday greeting... More

My wife and I had dinner at the restaurant on a Saturday evening at the end of June. The food was delicious and the service excellent. The portions are not big, so expect to have a three course meal, which is good as you can taste more of the menu! For three courses we paid approx 45 per person for... More
