My wife and I agree. This was the best food we have eaten for a long time. What a huge treat and right on our doorstep. There is a hotel attached for you poor folk who will have to travel to this excellent restaurant. I could fill a page waxing lyrical about the wonderful food and its artistic (but not over fussy) presentation. My wife was truly in seventh heaven over the pudding. The wine was recommended by a friendly and very helpful maitre. It was superb and in perfect condition. It was less than £20 and matched the food choice very well.
After lunch we had coffee in a gorgeous lounge in the lovingly restored old building. We saw people tucking in to afternoon teas (Yes it took us that long to eat an unhurried lunch). Everyone seemed really happy and there was a lovely sense of occasion generated by the staff.
All the staff should be given commendations for creating a faultless restaurant and given an immediate pay rise! We shall return.
