Took a spin to see Harvey's Point's famous Sunday carvery and I have to say it was worth the trip, although I needed an expandable waistband on my trousers. The food is superb and I look forward to returning, hopefully as an overnight guest this time

I have never fancied a carvery meal and wouldn't have chosen this option. I think this is the one to judge all others by. The food and service was first class. You can see why they have won so many rewards, when the choice was so wide and all of a very high quality.

Restaurant, the food was very tasty and a good choice on the menu, however it was all enhanced by the wonderful colourful welcome we got from Noel! We missed the view as it was dark, but the situation is spectacular with the panoramic view of the lake. We will be back to see it!

I have been to this hotel quite a few times over the years for their Sunday Carvey (a must book), the food is absolutely out of this world - everything is like buffet style from the starters (everything from deli meats, seafood, salads, bbq ribs, soups etc), to the mains (traditional carvery at very high standards) and the desserts are...
