Beautiful setting and attentive service and it's like being on a luxury picnic. My platter of cheeses, meats, roasted veggies, and breads was enormous and delicious. I had to take half of it home! Oh dear, if only it were closer to home!

Fantastic accommodating staff, a friendly rooster and delicious food can be enjoyed in peace whilst the kids can play to their heart's content. Amazing long tables to accommodate a whole group of people. Definitely worth coming to again and again
