Stunning surroundings, relaxed atmosphere, great food - it's a must. Staff are all very attentive to the customers, but not over powering - we have been a few times and never have once had a bad meal.

I have no doubt there will be a Xmas menu, this will not be out until November, but if you send them an email they will resolve this for you. If not try the Savoy Resturant
