Treated to an afternoon tea with Prosecco for my 60th birthday - cannot express how great it was - luxurious surroundings, fantastic food and service that was amazing. Had a fantastic time and would thoroughly recommend this.

My wife and I had a lovely evening 3 course meal at the bistro. We had an Itison voucher so had to choose from a set menu but the choice was more than acceptable and the quality of the food was very nice

Courtesy of Itison voucher - brilliant two-course lunch with glass of prosecco. Superb pate starter, baked brie in filo pastry followed by two beautifully cooked fish and chips. Great setting, ambience and very good service. Desk staff and serving staff were excellent. We'll be back
