Visited this restaurant in this beautiful hotel recently and what a wonderful experience. The bar man was very skilled and knew to serve Hendricks Gin with cucumber, not something you see everywhere.

The food was out of this world, the mussels were in a super sauce and as someone who loves mussels I really enjoyed my starter. Fillet steak was cooked to perfection. The head waiter was ever present without being over bearing and it felt as though nothing was too much trouble.

Skipped desert was too full after the meal couldn't even manage cheese but did have a lovely French coffee

To celebrate my grand-daughter's first communion my wife and I, along with 14 other relatives were treated to a really three course sumptuous meal in delightful surroundings. We were warmly greeted and seated at a long table together with other parties celebrating various occasions. Although the restaurant was busy the service we received was second to none.

Beautiful surroundings, decor is really well done. Service is very good, family run. The food is grand, has won awards but wouldn't win any oscars in my mind. Some items in the bar menu are very expensive for what you get. The garden is fantastic and very well looked after. Nice place to take your parents or aunts and uncles.

Had a lovely evening here with special friends and have to say, the food was amazing.

Mark and the staff were excellent and I have already told all my friends about this gem of a restaurant.

The lift in the car park for wheelchair users is a great idea.

This disabled toilet is very good but needs a little adjustment as like hand rails on the wall in front of the toilet.

But I would recommend this place 100% and will be back.

Just spent the evening here for my Mams birthday. The place itself is beautiful and the staff were brilliant couldnt do enough for us any requests were dealt with immediately and very patient with my 2 young children. I have to say I was disapointed with the food. We had a set Menu ( which they kindly personalised for us ) but the choices on it were not great, Taste was ok but have eaten nicer at home, not sure if I would be in a hurry to go back which is such a pity cause it is a beautiful place and the staff are excellent.

Thank you for your valued feedback, it is of great importance to us. Apologies that your experience of the food was not a good one although any of the personalized menus are chosen by the person who made the booking. We always offer a wide range of dishes and you can customize your own menu if required. Regardless, the food let us down and for that I apologise. I would hope that you give us another opportunity to prove ourselves. Please make your presence aware to me and I will try and make your night extra special.
