We had a wonderful lunch here. We arrived early for lunch and there were a few people inside and out and we opted for in as the wind had a chill to it. The atmosphere in and out was very relaxing. Service was quick and friendly and plenty of options.

I had fishcakes which were so tasty and piping hot, my husband finished with a sticky toffee pudding which was as light as a feather. The setting and food means this needs to be a date in the diary.

They have a diary of events but need to check as they have weddings and I can see why it was stunning.

The setting is amazing, the building really beautiful. A wonderful place to spend an afternoon having lunch. We got there late 3ish and they where happy to accommodate the food order. I had the pumpkin soup ( which was really good) my husband had a steak, and my daughter the pizza. The food choices are varied and suitable for all tastes. The wine they make is good, and its a very pleasant thing to eat and drink at leisure. The summer I imagine would be great for eating outside. Have visited now 3 times over the years, it only gets better. Very friendly staff add to the great experience. Thanks.

Dropped in on the off chance as the website wasn't working. We were the only people there at 4.15 on a Friday but rather than feeling empty the staff made us feel like we were in our own private chateau. The food was excellent and the Irish woman who served us was friendly, welcoming and a delight to talk to.

Thanks for really making our afternoon.

his beautiful building has melted into the landscape forming a feast for the eyes. The mulled wine was a great way to start our lunch, which just got better as we shared soup and platters. They were great to deal with over a group booking
