Loved it-good atmosphere with gentle music, private so that you could enjoy a meal as a couple, brilliant serving staff and the food-complementing flavours and textures, an experience for the taste buds! Good choice, they emphasise local game but there is choice even if that's not to your taste (I had the fish for the main course, my husband had... More

The restaurant is tastefully presented, the waiting staff are very professional and the service is good. There are 2 menus, the 1881 and the Idulgence, both are reasonably priced and offer an enticing selection. Unfortunately, the food was a little disappointing. I had the pheasant salad starter off the 1181 menu and apart from the salad it was bland, so... More

A real treat, local produce, beautifully presented and cooked, even the vegetarian option. Great service, nice choices. Wine a bit pricey, but otherwise loved it. The children's meals were just the same as the adults, and my children ( 11 year olds ) were impressed too. A bit too formal for younger children. Wish I could go more often.

A good choice each evening and cooked individually for you! Top quality - and I like my food. I couldn't find fault with anything, and the wine was excellent and served just at the right temperature.
