We were taken to lunch here by a friend in July this year. I have to say that we don't normally visit restaurants of this quality, being pensioners on a limited budget. Everything was of first class quality. The members of staff were friendly and helpul and not at all 'pushy'. The set meal looked rather expensive to us, so we opted for the cheaper alternative. Everything was beautifully prepared and presented. I thought my sweet looked a bit small when it arrived, but it was delightful and I was well satisfied. Wine was not cheap, but in surroundings such a these, this was to be expected. After eating, we wandered ariound the beautifully cared for garden which consisted of immaculate lawns, a lake, fountain and many beautiful flowers. A visit to remember.

Excellent lunch and fantastic new chef. Took my 82 year old Mum for a formal birthday lunch here on a Tuesday. Couldn't have been a better experience. Food really delightful. Mackerel "blowtorched" with blackcurrants, pickled beetroot, excellent starter. Mains of turbot and lemon sole also superb. Dessert... to die for; one based around rhubarb (jelly, ice cream, poached) and the other a buttermilk pannacotta. Staff friendly and formal enough without being stuffy. Strolled in gorgeous gardens after lunch. Will definitely return.

The cream teas here are the best we found. BUT when it was far to hot for a dog to be in a car We were not allowed to have him outside on the patio in the shade. The manager was very rude so even though we had ordered we left.
