Went here to celebrate our wedding with some friends. The food was amazing, as was the service. Nothing was too much trouble. When they heard it was our wedding (and my wife's birthday) they brought complimentary champagne and a beautiful hand made, personalised dessert. We definitely recommend and visit again. Thank you

Greeting was fab and we were shown straight to our table. Loved the ambience and the feel of the place. Service was very efficient and attentive but not too intrusive. Food was divine, we had three courses. Presentation of food was lovely and cost was not too pricey considering the quality and service. Will definitely return and look forward to... More

Visited here for dinner couple of years ago and enjoyed it so decided to try it again. Was not disappointed. We went for my birthday with family. All of the courses for 4 adults and 1 toddler were superb - could not fault them. My grandson loved his meal of sausage and dauphinois. Average cost - not cheap but not... More

Having only been into the winery for drinks/cocktails we decided to eat there for our anniversary. The food was outstanding and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience there. The only negative was the amount of food as we were both still hungry after the meal and for the price you would expect a little bit more. I would recommend visiting the... More

I've been several times over the years and always thought it was excellent, but the last 2 times i've been the food has been very average. Nothing wrong with the food just not very tasty or exciting. On one occasion the service was so slow we complained and in their defence they didn't charge for the food we had ordered.... More

The winery was a good place to meet and enjoy a good meal, a hiccup in the hygiene gave it a low rating, as a result we stayed away for a while.
