“Nice setting”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2014

We went here with family for lunch and the location is beautiful. The service was very quick and helpful and they were happy to cater for my Wife's gluten free needs. Unfortunately the quality of the food did not match the service as the meat was dry and bland, the fish drowned in a buttery sauce and just not up to what you would expect. The prices are fair but I think the quality could be improved to make this a worthwhile location to visit.

“Nice gardens”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013

Sitting in the revamped gardens you wouldn't know you were on the edge of the city! The new(ish) owners have modernised the gardens and looks a lot better. I have been here on several occasions on business using one of their 'conference' rooms and it has always been very good. Lunch has improved over the past couple of years.

“Beautiful and relaxing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013

This is a beautiful relaxing place for a meal and entertaining guests, or just relax and have a wine or a coffee and cake, the gardens are just beautiful? Well worth several visits.

“Do not go there unless you like being undervalued and ripped off”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

We went to this restaurant 2 weeks ago with a group for a christmas buffet it was neither cheerful or festive, why they called it a buffett I do not know. Every thing was counted including the slices of meat.
The food that was served was over held and unappetizing. If you have booked in cancel immediately if not choose somewhere else.
They did have other Canterbury wine which was could value

“Worst wine I ever tasted”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

This place had been booked for our function. I've never tasted such horrible watery wine before in my life, to the point that everyone started complaining and they started serving us other stuff. The girls had no idea how to make cocktails...
Cones food time after a long wait, the beef was nice but chicken and salmon, awful. Few of our team members who had Salmon, been very sick that night... That says a lot, right?
The dessert was absolutely appalling. Over all a very bad experience specially if you're booking it for a function
