Lovely Sunday lunch

Had a lovely birthday Sunday lunch with my best friend this week. We had a lamb starter, roast beef dinner and finished with Eton mess. All well presented, the only downside was that the beef was a bit tough although it was extremely tasty!! Staff were helpful and offered to replace the meal but... read more

Both the food and service was excellent, the restaurant was very busy but we were seen too very quickly and the food we ordered was beautifully presented and hot. We shared a tapas starter which was fab, I had surf and turf and the steak was cooked to perfection my husband had the sea bass. Treacle Tart with ice cream... More

Went to this place a couple of years ago and it was rubbish but were told it had improved considerably so decided to give it another try. I wish we hadn't . The grounds are very nice and the atmosphere is quite good, that's as good as it gets as the food is really not very good and the burger... More

A large group of us dined here and it was very hit & miss with the food. The Spanish sharing platters looked good but the bland taste failed to live up to the appearance. I had the chicken supreme for my main which was good and shared a bannoffee dessert which again was good. A few others around the table... More

We arranged a Sunday Lunch for 10 people in the Bistro as part of our Golden Wedding celebration. The staff were most willing and attentive and we were able to decorate the table. We greated our guests outside with a glass of champagne and then had a robust lunch with high quality and quantity. We were not hassled to leave... More

Came here as a family and the atmosphere is good however the food was shocking. We found the menu to have a good range of choice to suit all tastes. We ordered a range of things and then the food arrived. The sharing platters were bland and I had a 'whopper' burger and I can honestly say it is the... More

We came here for a family wedding and were impressed all round. Friendly staff to welcome and look after us. Attractive surroundings, buildings and gardens. The main reception hall is modern but has beautiful wooden roof structure, and pleasant terraces. Tasty nibbles/ canapes, and a beautifully cooked roast beef dinner, moreish desserts and then a great pork pie & mushy... More

We returned for our first wedding Anniversary meal and we were not disappointed. What a beautiful place. Excellent service and excellent food. We were seated quickly and our food came rather quick. Before we knew it we'd been there an hour and a half and had 3 amazing courses and cocktails. My slider was cooked perfectly; the burgers were nice... More

Have been a few times. Generally faultless food. Excellent service. Menu is a little limited, which can be problematic for some, but what you do get is always very good. Beautiful surroundings.

There were four of us in the group and we were welcomed warmly and had attentive service all evening. I had the soup of the day and salmon en papilotte and both were delicious, and the rest of the group were complimentary about their choice of food. We would all highly recommend this restaurant.
