We had lunch here with a large group recently. The service was excellent, as were the meals. Dessert was a bit skimpy, but nevertheless delicious. This is a beautiful lodge and grounds, and is is wonderful to enjoy.

The surroundings are lovely, we loved the music playing outside as well as inside, the room was set out nicely, the tables were not too close and a roaring fire kept the temperature... More
