Very slow service but staff friendly and willing to bring more coffee/toast etc.Better atmosphere sitting with a view of the lake - the other area is quite dark.

“Taster Menu left me hungry. Tables really close together.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2013

After eating the taster menu, I was still hungry. On Friday evening, the waiting staff all seemed to disappear between 9pm and 9:30pm. Did not get offered tea or coffee following the meal.

The tables are so close together that you cannot hold a private conversation.

“Great Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2012

We went to this restaurant for two breakfasts and dinners. The breakfast was superb they had a wide range of food: Eggs Benedict/Florentine, Smoked Haddock, Smoked Salmon, Cinnamon French Toast and a full breakfast (no baked beans!) We had the a la carte menu at night which was also superb with quite eloquent food however some courses were a little bit cold maybe due to the fact that our party was quite large. The service was quite good - however the waiter dropped a few items of crockery and our party wasn't all sat at the same table for breakfast. Also the food was very overpriced however we got it on a joint deal with the hotel meaning it was fairly affordable - normally £32.50 for the a la carte and £17.50 for the breakfast!
