Lovely surroundings and the staff were very attentive and pleasant. All in all a good experience but marred by the quality of the food which was not up to expectations.

a group of 13, including 1 child had Sunday lunch. Service was attentive without being obtrusive. Birthday cake looked after by staff. Only one small criticism. When putting table together for a larger party, ensure they are the same height.
