We had breakfast and dinner at the restaurant as we stayed here. Breakfast was a very well presented buffet and menu items were also available. All the food was excellent but nothing exceptional. The views and the weather were exceptional. On our last night we had dinner. We ordered pre dinner cocktails which they forgot to bring. Then they brought... More

The food was delicious and the service was excellent. We shared a large starter of seafood and we both had the venison which was melt-in-the- mouth. There was a great buzz in the place and still we could have a quiet conversation which is what we like. The waiting staff were brilliant and didn't keep coming up to the table... More

Wineport is the perfect setting for that special dinner. The service was exceptional, the atmosphere was very warm and festive and the dinner was delicious. We were there just in time for the sunset over the lake which was simply magical. A bit expensive but totally worth it. Highly recommended.

Went for Sunday lunch as a family. Staff were very welcoming and we had lovely table overloking the lake. The food was delicious and enjoyed by all. The lunch was served in a relaxing manner and not at all rushed which gave us ample time to enjoy the lovely view over a glass of vino!! Will return.

We went for Sunday dinner and could not fault a thing. The menu was small but had everything at the same time. Staff were friendly and helpful and we were not left wanting. It was a Sunday and we arrived there at around 3pm, avoiding the mainstream 1-2pm dinner time and what a time to go. The staff were not... More

Excellent value for money, would recommend without hesitation to anyone. I had the set menu which was included in our stay - it was just as good as anything you would get off a la carte, really good fun, wine and service.
