“Slow service”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

Beautiful setting, good food options and for those of you who have special dietary requests not a problem, children also catered for, all good so far and thats unfortunatley where it ends as for the service what service? upon arrival we were seated in the beautiful garden whilst we waited for our guests to arrive we were told that a waiter would follow shortly and take our order hmm and in what year might that be? eventually my Husband trotted off to the bar and ordered our drinks,it started to promise rain so on hearing thunder we decided to go back into the restaurant to find our own table and took our own drinks!!
Our guests arrived not asked if they would like a drink so we asked, we ordered food, the place wasnt very busy and as we had two small children we asked if we could be served quickly big mistake the food took forever so much so that we cancelled deserts. Would we go back if we wanted a 3 hour dinner yes.

“High quality food with attention to detail”
Reviewed 20 July 2014

Liked the starter and main course here. Really good quality food, main course of steak was brilliant, cooked to perfection! If I was being picky the peppercorn sauce could have been thicker. On the whole god quality food for all of those who ate there in our party.

“Huge portions and variety”

Lots to choose from, and good portions. Prosecco is lovely. Yorkshire puddings were a bit weird! Friendly staff and amazing puddings!
