Family lunch on Easter Sunday

We had worked up an appetite after following the Easter Egg hunt through the woods and were very pleased that we had booked a table for the six of us for lunch because the Courtyard restaurant was very full.

Went there with a group of colleagues and had a lovely time. I got the chicken with cheddar leeks and it was delicious. A good portion, actually too much for me. I read that some people complained about portions but the dinner one is fine. No one needs to eat a kg of meat with potatoes and veggies! The battered... More

Both meals we had were very overpriced and were not an adult portion. The chicken dish you would have had more meat on a sparrow and this was served on mash and green beans and if it was served on a plate it would have run off. The pasta dish special, lovely taste but barely 4 mouthfuls with some sort... More

Visited on Easter Sunday , very busy but the usual good cheerful service, really good seeing children of all sizes enjoying the Easter Egg hunt. Emma the 'Easter Bunny ' did a great job entertaining the children , or was it a real giant Bunny ? I will never know ! An enjoyable visit again.

We called in as we found ourselves in the area en route to a local establishment. The whole place is very well stocked and the staff seemed contented in their work. We had a light bite for lunch, we were attended to in a prompt manner and the food we chose very nice. Having made a casual enquiry with the... More

we have been here several times and have never been disappointed but our last visit a couple of weeks ago was not as good purely down to the miniscule portion sizes, I thought I had chicken but the meat and wing looked more like sparrow, three less than bite size slices very very poor value for money it was served...

Quite simply one of the best value afternoon teas I have eaten, the desserts were stunning and left us wanting more. Together with the shop it was a fantastic way to spend a couple of hours. Would recommend to anyone, we will be returning very soon

I came with my husband and parents on Sunday for afternoon tea and we were all very impressed. The staff were all friendly and accommodating. The food was yummy, the sandwiches were good, not thin and uninviting as I've experienced elsewhere before, the scones were warm and delicious, then the little cakes were scrummy!!! Also a very good price at... More

I had arranged to meet some friends here for lunch as I was told it was a lovely and friendly place, OH were we disappointed..... Firstly we stood at the entrance to the restaurant (as the sign suggested) for a good 15 min, it was not busy at all so why we're we having to wait to be greater, the... More

I sent you this message privately last week to allow us the chance to discuss what happened, as I am both shocked and disappointed by it. I haven't heard anything, so I am hoping you might see it here. Dear Reviewer, I am greatly concerned to read your review, as this is certainly not the way we wish our customers... More
