Nice meal, limited menu.

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.

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

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.

Excellent service by friendly staff. Food was good and well presented. Coffees were a little disappointing in that the latte was pretty tasteless and the Americanos and straight up filter were just the same. We are regular visitors and there is always something on the menu to suit. The fresh soup was particularly delicious .

I have come to this bistro for many years but recently found the food and menu disappointing. The selection is poor. I ordered veg lasagne which was very greasy, it was £8.00 and came with nothing not even a bit of salad or garlic bread. I ordered side chips for £3.00 which were not home made. A real let down,...

I have stayed in many places but this is most definitely the best. I got the package which included the spa treatment, bottle of champagne, a 3 course meal and the 'bazare' lodge for the night. The lady at reception was lovely and made me and my partner feel so welcome throughout, showing us around the lodge and letting us... More

We booked when the sun was shining as we know this restaurant had a beautiful terrace. Unfortunately by the evening when we arrived it had clouded over and was just starting to rain. We asked if we could have possibly a table indoors. We received a curt reply of well sit down there and I'll see what I can do.... More

After hearing hit & miss reports from local friends re its food over the last year, opted to give it a go & hope that our British summer would join in for our (former Cleveland Co Council Dev't Control group) monthly lunch venue. Success. Overall, a very nice lunch - only one real ale on - My Generation, but in... More
