Excellent venue for a treat, food and service were faultless, the only down side was that it was a bit chilly. It was January so being in a conservatory always had potential.

Well cooked and presented from an imaginative menu with choices to suit most tastes. My wife thought that the soy marinated halibut was the best she had ever eaten.
