Once again cannot fault the food

Menus are creative and very tasty. We have enjoyed the wonderful taster menus in the past. On this occasion we attended a tribute night and enjoyed a three course menu but sadly no coffee! although due to slightly cramped conditions the staff would have found it difficult to serve us.

Food served before we had any cutlery. Salt, pepper and basic condiments were not readily available! Inpossible to find a waiter eventhough the restaurant wasn't busy. A bit of... More

fabulous fresh breakfast cooked to order. I agree if you are in the main restaurant it is very dark because of all the wood. Best tables in the extension overlooking lake,,,,very light. service was swift and friendly. Excellent value.
