Staff were pleasant and helpful but were advising us and all other visitors that there was a wait of 30 minutes for meals and a wait of 30 minutes for desserts.

A bit longer wait between ordering and eating than I was expecting and the (liver & onions) meal... More

We arrived about 17:45 to be informed they did not start serving until 18:00. We ordered our breakfasts and went for a stroll around the pleasant gardens. With the excellent weather today... More
