I had a most enjoyable meal, served by attentive and pleasant staff. My only disappointment was that my main course was so hot (temperature) I couldn't taste it. To my non professional eye it could have been microwaved, however when I mentioned it the plate was immediately replaced, so full marks there. I particularly enjoyed the spearmint panna-cotta with strawberry... More

We went for Sunday lunch and it was clear that the dining room was staffed by inexperienced staff but not enough to undertake a smooth service. When shown to our table the first thing we noticed was everything was sticking to the surfaces, where it had not been cleaned properly ! The food,while very tasty and fairly well presented was...

The whole meal was excellent and the service and staff were extremely polite and helpful etc. The waitress even asked the chef, at my request how the pulled lamb was cooked as it was so tasty. My partner was equally as pleased with his steak meal. Couldn't fault it. It was a shame they didn't take as much care about... More

We had friends staying over and they were impressed with the rooms and the friendliness of the staff. WE all dined there and the food was presented and cooked perfectly. I ordered a fillet steak and I am very particular that it is cooked Blue (ie raw) there was no problem with this and it was a great steak. They... More

I felt rather conned by the photo used on Trip Advisor for the restaurant at the hotel. When we stayed for two nights in june, breakfast and dinner were served in a rather dark wooden clad room – not white with doors that open to the garden. The tables were dark and very sticky at breakfast – I presume it... More

Spoils my husband to an early Father's Day lunch with the children. He had carrot & sweet potato soup followed by chicken dinner and chocolate brownie with ice cream for dessert. Everything was excellent with great friendly service and fabulous surrounding. Love coming here on special occasions for the luxury setting.

Allowed doggies to accompany eating in the conservatory....a great plus for the doggies ! The quality of food was very good and the portions. We just experienced our meat to be more overcooked than to our liking despise asking for pink lamb and rare steak.

The food was variable from delicious to tough and overcooked. The service was very slow. The children's portion was generous but served on a very hot plate. The filet steak was over cooked and tough and had to be recooked - the chef agreed with our comments. The fish (sea bass) was delicious and perfectly cooked. We didn't eat as... More
