This was our first visit and we had the 4 course lunch. It was the best meal we have had in a restaurant for ages. The staff were lovely and the service great.

Last night we visited for dinner with two friends to celebrate our wedding anniversary and one of their birthdays. The whole experience from start to finish was faultless. We arrived to be greeted at the door and shown through the restaurant! We were actually a couple of minutes late but there was no mention of it and we were asked... More

We had the tasting menu and it was most enjoyable. Sometimes when having tasting menus, we find we don't always like every course but in this instance, we enjoyed them all. The service was attentive and the food excellent from start to finish. If I were to criticise I would say the restaurant was a little "hotel-like" and therefore lacking... More

I would wait until this place regains at least one Michelin star before you visit, we were pleased with the presentation of the food but the taste was just not there, when there is so little on the plate I think your taste buds should be tantalized not ignored. Pretty but pretentious The service on the whole was good (near... More

We have been going to the vineyard for 8 years and it's been fantastic every single time. The food is brilliant , the service is second to none and the staff are more then happy to help with whatever it is you need.

"I am a vegetarian". These words strike terror into many chefs as I am sure they would just rather everyone could sample their fine dishes without compromise. I tend to avoid 'fine dining' restaurants for this very reason and prefer a tasty Indian, Thai or Italian meal with lots of taste and flavour. Traditional restaurant food can be very bland... More

Beautiful bedroom and extremely comfortable bed, sumptuous food, amazing wine and excellent service. Nothing to complain about, a bit pricey but perfect for a couples retreat or special occasion. Would definitely go back ....
