“Why did I go there?”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

With the pasta dish and meat dishes smothered in a heavy sauce, which tasted like cheap bottled BBQ sauce, and the fried tasteless fish which had potatoes again with this brown sauce and canned or leftover artichokes this was a very bad dining experience. Food was very expensive and equally bad!!

The only good part of the place were the waiters who were most accommodating and polite.

Worth a visit to see the lovely house and grounds but 5 star dining it is not. I suggest going during the spring months where you can enjoy the outside surroundings

“A Perfect 50th Anniversary Celebration”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

My husband and I recently celebrated our 50th Anniversary at the Country House with 40 members of our family. From the beginning to the end, it was the perfect party. The owner, Bob, was a pleasure to work with.We could customize the menu to our taste and the dessert selection knocked everyone's socks off. A wonderful cake plus chocolate covered strawberries, cheesecake, mousse beautifully served. The kids had their own special appetizers and meal. Hor d'ouvres were served on trays by the staff with wine and champagne as our guests arrived. Every detail was thoughtfully worked out. It was the perfect venue and the food was delicious. It was an elegant and memorable day.
