“Excellent Food, Excellent service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

We took relations from America for Lunch. The food was excellent, the service was excellent and in our opinion was very good value for very good food. The setting is lovely. There was a party of 20+ at the same time , this did not affect the service in any way. I would fully recommend it to anybody.

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

I love this place. it takes an hour to get there from my house but it is well worth the trip. I manage to eat here about four times a year.

The restaurant is set in beautiful grounds with a lake which supports a variety of water birds. There is a canal right next to the restaurant with quite a lot of boats travelling by which adds to the interest.

The food is excellent and I have never had any trouble enjoying the vegetarian options which are inventive and interesting.

The service is very good and the staff are helpful and go out of their way to assist with special requests.

Given the setting and quality of food and service I consider the value for money to be excellent.
It is necessary to book ahead for Sunday lunch.

I recommend this place highly

“Lovely birthday meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

It was a pleasure to travel to this lovely restaurant and enjoy a first class meal in a contemporary setting. The staff were efficient and attentive and the food excellent, and having a linchtime meal found the price was very affordable for such fine fare. The only very slight negative comment was that because of some renovation work there was a view of a variety of builders and vehicles in sight of the restaurant, perhaps some temporary blinds might have been appropriate. My wife had taken me out on my 60th birthday and it was a delightful surprise. It was very nice to see the "signature" chef come out to congratulate another birthday party so we knew on the day it was his food we were eating which is not always the case at other high class signature restaurants.

“Lucky find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012

We ate in the conservatory restaurant the other week after going on a day trip, we decided to stop here after searching for places half way on our journey home. we had had a quick look at reviews and it looked nice although the a la carte menu is not cheap we wanted a bit of a treat. we ended up being in time for the early bird menu (which actually runs till 19:30 when we went) opting for a full 3 courses, sorbet and coffee which is excellent value for the quality of food. staff were attentive and easy to talk to the general mood was calm and relaxed (we went mid week). we are definitely going to go back and take friends with us next time. i uploaded a couple of photos of my main and dessert!

“excellent service and value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

We do not live far from this restaurant and for some reason we had never been
We booked a table and the service was excellent, good choice on the menu and food was superb,
This is the closest you will get to a michelin star restaurant, with reasonable prices for the quality of food
We will certainly be going again
