Without doubt one of the best dinners we have eaten in a long time. The service was prompt and efficient and all the staff were pleasant.

We had two breakfasts and one evening meal in the restaurant. All were excellent. The evening waiters were very friendly and helpful - couldn't fault them. Not quite the same high standard at breakfast, but still perfectly acceptable.

Food is very good, well cooked and presented. The menu provides a varied selection to cater for all tastes. Staff are pleasant and friendly but the service could be improved.We were not greeted on arrival and had to wait around for someone to show us to a table. The room itself needs some refurbishment, especially the chairs, very heavy and... More

I had the beef on the first night and fish on the second night. Was really impressed. Service timely. Setting pleasant - old fashioned.

Having been here before standards have slipped would be nice to go back to the old ways with dim lighting a bit more romantic not feel like you are in cattle market.

The restaurant is in a lovely setting, the staff were friendly and helpful shame about the food. It was OK but it could have been so much better. The cheese salad starter that should have come with pea shoots didn't and the cheese was tasteless. The slow cooked salmon starter also had little flavour. The chilli and garlic linguine was...

We ate in this restuarant once during our three night stop. You were able to choose from the a la carte and the bistro menus. The four of us chose from both and all dishes were very good. The waiting staff were very helpful and hard working. I have no hesitation in recommending this restaurant.

Arrived mid afternoon to have tea/scones and prosecco (complimentary when Simon heard what the occasion was).Relaxed in the comfortable lounge before having an excellent dinner(5 of us).Service very good.After a comfortable nights sleep we enjoyed a superb breakfast (served,not buffet!!) and were able to chat and relax without being hurried.
