We had a marvellous dinner here with friends. We enjoyed a pre dinner drink in the bar which was very nice. Dinner exceeded my expectations - I had the carpaccio and then the rib eye of lamb. So delish and the lamb was cooked to perfection. Service was professional and the wine list excellent. Everyone was happy with their food... More

The rooms here are very nice and quite romantic. Food is always superb. I have been here with just my husband and I have been here with 25 cadets. Always great ! The owners really put their care and love into the business.

I was traveling solo on vacation and saw this restaurant on Trip Advisor so I thought I would give it a try. I had the four course meal and must say every bite was wonderful! The only negative was that it is really not a place for a single, while the staff was lovely and very friendly- they had me... More

There was soup or a Ceasar Salad for starters, the main dish was shrimp served with rice and julliened vegetables in a tomato sauce and a hard to make choice for dessert. The wine... More

Chef Leary has a golden hand in the kitchen, his creative dishes are a tour design force to be reckoned with. A nod to the classics with a healthy dose of nouvelle cuisine. This to go along with a stellar wine cellar and you are sure to experience an epicurean delight.Been 10 times for various dinners and has never disappointed.... More

Beautiful Inn which takes you back in time.... A warm, comfortable and inviting atmosphere. Perfect for celebrating any occasion or just for a relaxed dinner in a charming venue. Great wine selection and the menu, although small, would appeal to most. The salmon was cooked to perfection. I would certainly return on my next trip through Coburg.
