Excellent food and service. Very quiet when we visited but it was a Sunday. We had breakfast in the conservatory with a beautiful outlook of the gardens and countryside in the background.

A real treat to eat at this lovely hotel where the service and surroundings are impeccable. Coffee in the lounge afterwards , sitting by the real log fire completed the experience.

Visited today as part of their winter special offer 3 courses for an unbeatable £19.50 (I think it finishes 10th Dec).

We not rushed, spent two an half hours in a lovely relaxed... More
