Lovely dinner and friendly service. We originally booked for 830 but managed to change to 730 with no problem. Waitresses all friendly and food amazing. I recommend the duck starter and steak for main!

However what really had... More

Fabulous food and lovely friendly staff. Had dinner, breakfast and lunch (over 2 days) and was not disappointed with any meal. Highly recommended and can't wait to go back and sample the chocolate mousse again!

On being seated we were greeted by a member of staff who had no idea what the sandwiches were. We were only given a choice of loose leaf tea when... More
