most enjoyable food

went with another couple. we all found the menu to be rather off putting, as the description of the food did not match well with the food that arrived. in fact, all four of us were hunting the menu to find things we could eat, as chili and fennel (neither of which any of us were fond of), seemed... read more

Following my less than complimentary review of our lunch in the Hotel Restaurant in July I was contacted through Trip Advisor by Thierry Jung the Hotel Manager. He was concerned that our visit to the restaurant was less than satisfactory and invited us to return for lunch as his guests so that he could show us that our experience was... More

A really well welcoming atmosphere and well presented afternoon tea, classic with a modern twist. Generous portions and a welcome offer of more clotted cream and/or jam if needed. We sat in the courtyard garden and we were able to enjoy the sun and my friend the shade. The only tip I would have is, don't sit by the vent... More

This was not a pre planned visit and I wasn't optimistic we would get a table at short notice but the staff were very accommodating. The choices were from 3 parts of the menu:- taster, bistro and seafood. Bread was brought, this was clearly freshly prepared and more was offered should we wish. This was followed by a cucumber consommé... More

We would not usually choose a seafood restaurant but we found food that was very tasty and we were very happy with out choice. I had the king prawn and clam chowder so tasty and we shared a pannacotta that had homemade honey comb yum!

5 course taster menu was excellent complimented with a comprehensive wine list. A small intimate setting.

They're not far off getting their first Michelin star. Each course was a gastronomic journey accompanied by a wine that complimented each dish as it should. Great thought has gone into the wine selection and as a £20 supplement was worth the addition to a beautiful meal. And at the end, we didn't feel as though we'd eaten too much;... More

The taster menu ( we requested no meat) was beautifully cooked and presented. It was served a a suitable speed by professional and friendly staff. Taster wines with the meal seemed to be eminently suitable.

Very good experience. The starters should be bigger but that's a small niggle. But the quality and attention to detail was very good.
