Returned to the walled garden bistro to see any improvements had been made, after our last visit only a month ago the improvement was quite spectacular on both occasions the food as been out of this world but staff were a tiny bit unsure about their role in a top quality food restaurant, but in just such a small amount...

The staff are friendly and professional especially the waiter who took our order who, despite having to change orders several times , kept a smile on his face and really did a great job. Food...

We ate here well staying at the hotel. They were happy to seat 2 adults and 2 children for dinner, a great selection of tasty food, and nice children's menus. The service was exceptionally friendly, and we would eat here again.

We had chicken terrine with asparagus to start, mains of roasted pork belly with crispy crackling and a roasted chicken breast followed by a generous portion of cheese, chutney, gapes and biscuits. Very good, well presented food with service to match.

Visited on Father's Day for the three course set menu at 19.99 a head. Very reasonable prices for the food you get. Beautifully presented and lovely surroundings to sit back and relax. The only downfall the place has was that when we were leaving there were around 3 members of staff near us and not one said bye, or thank... More
