Absolutely love this establishment. I had the Croquettes which were utterly stunning, whilst my husband had the Rhubarb Duck (also gorgeous). The frozen Lemon Meringue however was amazing & sealed the night for us. Loved it so much we're going back before Christmas to have it again. Thank you for a truly lovely evening, filled with old world charm &... More

In a word .... AMAZING. I just loved loved loved this place. First of all the house is just beautiful. A majestic 1800's restoration. It is also in an awesome location nestled into the valley with awesome views. Of course if you come here at night you won't see the surrounding countryside. But then you step,inside to a different era... More

We sat in the bay window overlooking the garden while the full moon rose over the hills. The food was delicious, with local produce and home grown pork. We would love to know the secret of the preserved lemon and potato soup. If you are spending time in New Norfolk, this is one place you should not miss.

It really isn't fair to Gary and Pat to rate their restaurant because we arrived unannounced and their restaurant wasn't open, but they invited us to enjoy their leftovers and a game pie. I had the best turkey I have ever had in my life and will endeavour to reproduce Pat's effort this xmas! Peter raved about his wallaby and... More

Having dinner on our last evening in New Norfolk at Tynwald was the most delightful dining experience for us. It was my birthday and we had the most magnificent meal, the surroundings are stunning and the service excellent. Our hosts made us feel most welcome, even delivering our desert with a birthday candle for me. I could not recommend dining... More
