The food is not cheap at £55 per person per meal but as a special treat well worth it. Food is innovative and my wife and daughter's fish and their desserts were excellent. Yorkshire quail and rump of lamb were also top notch, as was my chocolate dessert. Nouvelle cuisine I suppose but beautifully cooked, presented, and served. Excellent wine... More

Brilliant! The food is to die for. The only suggestion we can make is a slightly larger mains or some additional side dishes. The main just was not quite enough to feed a "growing man" lol

Went to celebrate a friend's birthday and was very disappointed with the evening meal. a 3 course meal costing£55 you expect something special. The starter was tasteless. The main course was very small and was not accompanied by any vegetables or potato. When asked about vegetables we were told we didn't order any. Our response was that we hadn't been... More

This is not to be missed. It is fine dining at its best in elegant, stately surroundings. The service was discreet but extremely efficient and friendly. The menu choice offered variety and interest. The duck and foie gras with gingerbread and rhubarb accompaniments was a fusion of flavours, a real treat. The presentation of all dishes was a work of... More

It's hard to find the right words to describe our experience. We were welcomed with a drink in the Morning Room, where the furnishings and decor were superb. We had lunch in the restaurant and the service and food were excellent, the views from the restaurant were magnificent and the dining room was beautiful. We completed our visit with a... More

Had lunch twice here in October 2013, the food is great but a little on the small side. However we did thoroughly enjoy it and would go back again. Nice to be able to take coffee after the meal in the drawing room next to the fire reading the paper. This is my favourite bit.

Last weekend my husband and I brought both mums here for lunch as a mother's day treat. The food was gorgeous with just a slight niggle - my mum had asked for the forced rhubarb dessert and although the plate looked good, there were only a few teeny tiny pieces of raw? rhubarb accompanied by various things, a small sorbet...

The tasting menu was a delightful array of treats. The waiters were mindful of the fact that I was dining alone and offered to bring me something to read. The food came out at a very suitable pace and was delicious and varied. The restaurant itself was a beautiful space. My only criticism is that breakfast in the same space... More
