My first visit although my wife last dined here 12 years ago. A warm and friendly welcome in an upper crust sort of way, drinks in the bar and plenty of time to choose from a perfectlly Adequate lunch menu and a sensibly priced wine list. Two seafood starters (trio of shellfish and trout) suited us well and they were generous portions and very tasty. Rare beef was assured and it was to perfection, tender with a selection of fresh vegetables including roast and boiled Jersey Royal potatoes. Piece de resistance undoubtedly a wonderfully crowded sweet trolley with a selection of all things creamy, fresh fruit, cheesecake et al. Cheese and biscuits or a hot toffee pud also offered.
The staff, young and old were charming and attentive to match the ambience of the house, grounds and heritage of the place.
A thoroughly enjoyable few hours immersed in the sort of old world charm that hardly exists today - with delicious food of course.
