The meal was fantastic and not expensive. The tour of the house was postponed which was disappointing. Another visit on the cards.

Turned up without reservation so would have been happy to wait. We asked the server what soup was on menu. She immediately responded by saying tomato and basil but we couldn't serve you we have had a lot of diners arrive. We would have been happy to wait but the look of panic that diners may turn up and actually... More

After a good visit around the House we visited the cafe which was very busy serving lunch and tea, coffee and cakes. We settled for just a scone with jam and clotted cream and a pot of tea as we were eating later, my wife had a cake and latte. Seems to be a very busy meeting place for people... More

Attended for a family wedding and the setting was perfect. From arrival, through ceremony, reception and night time reception everything was perfect. The staff are very attentive and nothing was a problem or too much for them

Had a most enjoyable lunch here recently. I dined from the set menu, really good value at £14.99 for three courses, the others of our party dined from the cafe menu. My lunch from the set menu was a very enjoyable rillette of duck with toast and gooseberry chutney, followed by chicken breast with barley and butternut squash, then chocolate... More

Ate here for lunch today and, once again, had a lovely lunch. The sweet potato, chili and coriander soup was very good as was the hake. Service, once again, was first rate.
