We had a small family party for Christmas dinner and while the food was amazing, we had to wait an unconscionable amount of time between courses. It is not enough to serve good food. At these prices good service should be expected and that means making sure food arrives within a reasonable amount of time. My elderly parents were our guests and they grew tired and impatient, perhaps more than someone younger might have been, but satisfying them should have been part of the job. We had a lovely evening but it would have been more memorable if the service was more timely.

There is a choice of 3,5, and 8 course pre fixe dinners. The only turkey was the a take of on the tired turdukin theme, But we had one stake and one roast venison meal, and it was about as good as it can get with these cuts - GREAT! Service was friendly, helpful and not intrusive in any sence. Beats the heck out of some other Thanksgiving dinners I've had.

The most important meal of the day! Thank you so much for reminding our guests that a full breakfast (and afternoon tea) is included with each stay. It is a really great way to start the day in Newport as the fog clears off, whether you're in your guest room or our dining room. We hope to see you again soon and thank you again.
