Wanted somewhere new to try and we booked here. booking a table was easy and got the time we wanted. We went there 10 days ago and I'm having difficulty remembering what I actually had to eat which sums up the meal.....totally forgettable!

So after checking out and having a great time in the spa and the spa garden we thought why not lets try the Brasserie - and great it was too - lovely seat outside and excellent food served by polite waitress - wish I could remember her name as she was most helpful and very good at her job!

We arrived for brunch on Sunday not sure what to expect. We were promptly seated and brought a plate of fruit and pastries - well one mini pastry each. It took a while for the coffee to arrive and even longer for the waitress to take our order after she forgot about us.... However as I was with a friend... More

We initially booked the Orangery but changed to the Brasserie for our evening meal and to the Orangery for breakfast. The staff were proficient, pleasant and helpful.

What a fantastic dining experience and it can be as expensive or as reasonably priced as you wish. They have a set meal £20 for 2 courses and £28 for 3. Do try it out .
