The food was excellent, typical high end, not huge portions, but very good, we had a plan that included 3 courses so we did not leave hungry. Staff was limited so service was not fast paced, but for a place like this, that is what I want anyway. Staff was very nice.

My wife and I enjoyed both breakfast and dinner here and Chef Peter Sheedy put his talents to creating delicious presentations and professional wine paring. We enjoyed dining by the fire place (real, not gas) while taking in the decor of the manor Sincerely appreciated was the surprise birthday dessert presented to my wife toward the end of our evening....

Classy, upscale menu with friendly, down to earth service. Great wine suggestions. Very relaxing.Menu is a bit limited but everything is delicious. The pub is a great place to start or finish a dinner.

We live locally but grew up in big cities. When we want a special fine dining experience this is the place we choose. If an expensive restaurant means huge portions and doggie bags then this isn't the place for you. This place is about delicious food prepared expertly and reasonable portion sizes. We've always enjoyed meals here and experienced something... More

The imagination, presentation and flavours provided make this a must for diners. There are alternatives nearby but do not compare to the standard achieved here. Wonderful food.

We recently stayed at the Manor where this restaurant is located. This is the sort of place you would want to go for a quiet, relaxing, leisurely dinner. The dinning room is beautiful with a distinct antique feeling. The breads are homemade and delicious. We shared a salad (they are quite large) and the shrimp appetizer which was excellent. We...

we stayed at the hotel which was fantastic so we had high expectations for the restaurant. but the food was nothing special and not cheap. on the other hand ,the breakfast in the morning was great ,so that made up for it.

We arrived fairly early for dinner and were able to get a table right in front of the roaring fire. Enjoying a couple glasses of wine, we could have easily forgotten about dinner and just enjoyed the warmth of the hearth. Ultimately, we gave in to the temptations found on the menu. Right after ordering, the server brought out a... More

We ate here for my birthday celebration. The food is delicious and presented beautifully. The restaurant is high priced, but, for a special occasion it is very nice. The tornadoes of beef were cooked perfectly and came with potatoes and veggies. They brought me a decorated plate with chocolate covered strawberries and a birthday treat. This is in an old... More
