This was an unexpected lunch stop at the end of our tour. We didn't realize it was part of it, but were very happy it was. The house has a lovely outlook over the bay. The food was lovely, only small gripe was the chicken was a little bit tough. But the taste was great! The Ice coffee caramel was super! Nice spot to relax before heading back on the plane.The boys liked the peacock in the enclosure! I could easily have kicked back in a sunlounger had a snooze and stayed for scones!

A really quaint place typically british. It is a hot 10 minute walk up to the tea house but you get welcomed with an ice cold flannel. The food and drinks are very good and the price is reasonable. Well worth a visit.

Firstly, after i sat down for 20 minutes .. I'm still sitting without anybody asking me for order until I walk to the counter and request for it. Good is I do not have to wait long for the food. The Scone doesn't taste like scone (need to improve a lot) but the rest are not bad. Environment is very good even in the afternoon (night dining will be very good).

We had a dinner here with some of the visitors from Taiwan. The environment is well maintained with the nice grass area. The western food tastes great although it is slightly pricey. There's a peacock as well.
The night setting is quite romantic which suits for dating couples.
