Exceptional lunch for Mother's Day. Been there many times. Food is divine. The triple chocolate mousse today was outstanding. Excellent service - attentive but unobtrusive- not an easy balance to achieve. And reasonable prices, all in lovely spacious surroundings. Very impressed.

Part of a Spa Day. Food was very good, service excellent. It should be noted that only two courses are provided as part of the Spa day. Drinks and dessert are charged on top.

This visit was for a family birthday and having been before there were high expectations however this time was a poor let down. The restaurant was empty and we assumed this was because we were early but it did not change yet most places on a weekend are full. Staff were very nice when they could be found but you... More

Restaurant and staff pleasant but food disappointing. The roast beef was far too thick and difficult to cut, roast potatoes not fresh and beans undercooked ,Yorkshire pudding also not fresh and overcooked!! Also partner not happy to have his meal with a table of ladies from the spa in their dressing gowns!!! Would not return!

Food was quite good but nothing amazing. Service was lacking, attention to detail poor. We had to keep flagging down staff for drinks, bread which surely we should have been given before our starter not between starter & mains. Quite some wait between starter & mains. I had belly pork & mashed potatoes both of which were quite dry. Wouldn't... More
