Went here in the late summer for a family lunch to celebrate my Father's birthday and I have to say we were all hugely disappointed and I was very embarrassed at having suggested it as a venue. It's a lovely place and so we had high expectations when we arrived, but every aspect of the food was awful - bland and extremely over-priced for what you received. Starters were ok, but only ok, and none of the salad garnish was dressed and had obviously just been taken out of a bag. My main course of pan fried salmon consisted of an extremely small piece of salmon which was under seasoned, salad leaves (again undressed and dry) and lots of new potatoes which were all under cooked. Everybody elses main courses were exactly the same and I think they hoped that serving you lots of potatoes would fill you up. My father chose a desert which came with a toffee ice-cream as he likes to have ice-cream for dessert. However, it turned up (after a long wait and the place was almost empty) without any ice-cream - without a word or an apology. So disappointing for such a beautiful place but they really need to up their game on the food side. I don't intend to visit this place again any time soon.
