Really romantic setting. Varied and interesting menu. Good wine list all reasonably priced. Was seated behind a pillar when lakeside view tables were available and had to ask to be moved. 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.

Very slow service but staff friendly and willing to bring more coffee/toast etc.Better atmosphere sitting with a view of the lake - the other area is quite dark.

After eating the taster menu, I was still hungry. On Friday evening, the waiting staff all seemed to disappear between 9pm and 9:30pm. Did not get offered tea or coffee following the meal. The tables are so close together that you cannot hold a private conversation.
