Lovely food and great service. We were a party of 4 adults and two children (aged 6 and 9). Very reasonable price as we choose from the Summerfest menu at two courses for £12 and the children's menu at £5. Would definitely recommend as a lovely relaxing setting too.

I came here with a small group of friends for some spa treatments. First we had a prawn, avocado and mango salad. Mine was swimming in oil so wasn't that great but my friends looked a lot fresher.

An impromptu visit for Sunday lunch left us pleasantly surprised. Rang at around 1pm and they had a table for us at 3pm. We had mains and desserts. The Sunday dinner was lovely, very tasty and the meat was cooked perfectly. Had to wait about 5 minutes from getting our plates with meat and yorkshires on to getting our veg... More

Very nice food as usual but service very slow. We had to ask to see a menu and after waiting at least 15 minutes we were told that the kitchen was very busy. Both mains and pudding arrived minus some items. However, manager did reflect this in the bill. 2 hours for a 2 course meal for 2 was far... More

I've visited here a few times, and have been satisfied each time. The menu is fairly small but offers a nice selection of meals for reasonable prices. I visited for dinner, which was quite nice but I prefer going for lunch, personally. I ordered the prawn, avocado, and mango salad, which was nice if not a bit sloppy due to... More
