We arrived for lunch without having prebooked. The waitress said it was not a problem and we were shown to a table overlooking the lake. We had 2 courses from the table d'hôte menu. Aidan the head waiter had only been working at the hotel for a short while, he dealt with our requests with such finesse which enhanced our dining experience. Whilst we waited for our main course we were served with a basket of 3 beautiful varieties of bread made on the premises which, with the lovely butter were a meal in themselves. We both made good choices for our main course, my salmon fricassee was an explosion of tastes and textures, the bisque like sauce was so good I asked for a soup spoon so I didn't waste a drop! My husbands escalope of veal was nicely cooked and served on a bed of pomme purée which he loved. We then each had the most beautiful dessert, a superb dark chocolate mousse and creme brûlée. We were so full we didn't even have room for a coffee. It's a shame that the dining room was so quiet, this hotel is so lovely and the staff genuinely attentive. We were delighted that the owner, Terry, came over to have a chat with us, that made my day. All in all another delightful visit, we've been for lunch here about 3 times and had at least 2 afternoon teas which are equally scrumptious!
