The one word, outstanding, says it all for the food and service. A quirky menu that delights with every bite. A whole host of surprise extra courses too. Friendly and professional service all around. Chef should be credited with more rosettes as the cooking here is worthy of 4. Looking forward to returning for the tasting menu with matched wines... More

I was very impressed by the menu, and the food couldn't be faulted. It was delicious, and the presentation was impeccable. The service really let it down, we were given different versions of the menu, staff gave us conflicting information about moving from the bar to the restaurant, and when serving the food they made patronising comments. These included "you... More

Amazing food, very attentive staff, Emily the sommelier is fantastic and unfortunately not that well advertised but hopefully that will change sooner rather than later, intimate setting - a must and will be back.

Visited on a Saturday evening, group of 6. Warm, friendly atmosphere. Staff were exceptional, the male member of staff who looked after our table, Janet and Emily, all deserve special mention. All the food was innovative and tasty, definitely style with substance. My favourite, the perfectly cooked duck and the amazing cheese selection. Great night, great restaurant.

Although we were at a conference weekend with many delegates present the staff coped brilliantly at breakfast and was split over three adjacent rooms which were all full of character in the original manor building - oak paneled walls with interesting objet d'art and paintings. Breakfast was most enjoyable and despite having to be in time for the opening of... More

We celebrated our wedding anniversary with a meal at the Lawns Restaurant and couldn't have asked for a better all round dining experience. The food was exceptional, every course was an experience; exciting, stimulating, delicious flavours and served with so much enthusiasm and passion for what you do. So much more than just a meal out. We'll be back again... More
