We had eaten here before last August and having really enjoyed that experience, decided to repeat it. We were not disappointed.
It was the evening of Bank Holiday Monday and the place was very busy, outside all the tables around the lake were taken, but we had no problem getting a table indoors. They told us at the bar, the food would take a bit longer than normal as they were extremely busy. This was fine - it did take a while, but it was worth the wait.
I had a chicken dish which was absolutely delicious, beautifully presented and just the right portion size. My husband had gammon and chips with a duck egg on top - again, this looked rustic but delicious and he enjoyed it. Our son ate pasta with garlic bread from the children's menu which was good too.
Service was excellent, the staff were friendly and attentive, and we enjoyed a quick stroll in the gorgeous grounds afterwards. The setting of this place by the lake is just stunning, especially if the sun is shining. Would definitely recommend eating here, you will not be disappointed.
