This was fine dining, I really can't understand it's position of 62. There were 4 people in our party for lunch and we all had different food over 3 courses. However nothing was left on any of the plates and we were all in agreement that the food was exceptional.

We had the "Mothers day afternoon tea" this afternoon. The food was lovely but was just a little disappointed by the service and set up. We were in the main hall which was lovely and the table was laid out ready for us. Our table was booked for 12 and there was only us and one other table of people... More

When we arrived there was nobody to greet us but soon a young lady took us to our table and made us very welcome.This was a family meal and the ambience was very good. A lovely barn with lots of nice beams. The service was good and a nice choice on the menue. There was a good range of wines.

We were a party of 14 and were seated at 2 tables pushed together. It was a little odd as there was a round table which was higher than the rectangular table so it was like paupers at the banquet if you were on the low table, lol. We had drinks in the bar pre-dinner and the restaurant manager took... More

We visited here earlier in the week and we won't be returning. The service was slow waiting an hour for starters to arrive. When starters arrived the soup of the day wasn't what the waitress had said it was meaning that my mother in law didn't even eat it. The beef fillet medallion main was small and the sauce was...

The location of this restaurant is excellent - peaceful area and lovely gardens. The restaurant itself is a converted barn with a very high ceiling and exposed beams. The tables are placed a reasonable distance apart so other tables' conversations are not a distraction. Each table is simply and attractively decorated with fresh white linen tablecloths and napkins. So overall... More
