Stayed over last night & dined in the restaurant, the food was beautifully presented, tasted delicious & could not be faulted. I am lucky to have dined in many fine dining restaurants with Michelin stars & they surely deserve one simply stunning!

Beautiful surroundings, fabulous food and delicious wine. The tasting menu enabled us to try so many different but equally amazing courses. Each one outshone the previous one. Would I visit again? Yes in a heartbeat! Would I recommend? Without hesitation.
