We went here to celebrate a wedding anniversary. The food and service were excellent and the dining room nicely furnished and tables set in formal dining settings. The appetizers set the tone for the meal; the heritage tomato salad with a balsamic reduction dressing was tasty and different, the scallops were large and done to perfection. We had pork tenderloin with date stuffing and it was probably one of the best pork meals we have ever had. Done to perfection with wonderful tastes. The bread served before dinner was a homemade molasses mini-loaf, hot and surprisingly light. The service was excellent, the waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu and gave excellent suggestions. The menu is quite varied with an a la carte menu, a prix fixe menu and a sucking pig roast buffet being served on the patio. The only flaw in the entire evening was the background music. For most of the time it was a pretty benign, but pleasant music in the background. However periodically the mix got very strange and at one point a loud Motown tune boomed out drowning out the quiet conversations of the dining room. Then it went back to quiet background music for a while, and then suddenly a 50's song came blasting out. When I mentioned this strange mix to the waiter he said it was usual. Apart from having an outstanding meal interrupted by loud bar music every ten minutes or so, this is an excellent restaurant that offers a fine dining experience.

Outdoor dining was wonderful, surrounded by gardens and trees and the stream. This use to be an old mill. We stopped for lunch, but i imagine the dinner is just as good. the lamb burger was very different and delicious. Nice selection for lunch.

From the time of the check in to the end of our stay, I was totally impressed with the service, the food and beverage and the well appointed rooms. Please consider the Sunday Brunch.
