Recently had afternoon tea here. The cakes and sandwiches were so fresh and delicious it was worth every penny. But I must say its the staff that make this place. From the doorman that greeted us with a smile, to the manager who came over to chat after the meal, we were made to feel so welcome. 5... read more

I had lunch with my family , five in party , the ambience was alright but the dinning room/conservatory was over heated . The service was helpful , Where this restaurant failed to impress was with its food . The tastiest item on the table was the brown bread . I had halibut with mussels and a very meagre quantity...

The food was outstanding. Choice of wines by the glass slightly limited especially one to match the foie gras on the menu. The venison was excellent and cooked to perfection. Staff were super.

The staff here are excellent warm and attentive! The starter of scallops and foie gras were perfectly executed. The lamb main was truly a triumph. Best ever! Venison was good too. Dessert of crumble and bakewell tart were good but didn't have the same wow factor as the starters and mains. We enjoyed them all the same. Maybe add some... More
