“Nice food, vastly overpriced”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

It was a Friday lunchtime and we were the only customers there. We asked for two teas and ordered our food, we wanted to order an item from the specials board and was told the specials were not available on Friday because they were still awaiting deliveries. The tea came in a small stainless steel flip lid pot (usually used for coffee or hot water), this was for two, it was so weak it was more like hot water. We managed to just get one small cup each and drank this before any food arrived and ordered another, stronger pot.

The food arrived, very small portions and, believe it or not, half a warm roll each! Perhaps the rolls hadn't been delivered either?????

The food was cooked well but, as I say, very small portions and far too expensive for what we got.

To top it all, when the bill arrived we found we had been charged £8.40 for 4 small cups of weak tea and even then we'd had to ask for extra milk!

Would we go there again? Only if someone else was paying.

We are sorry the tea was not to your liking and you found it expensive. However, we are a restaurant and do not think that £14.75 for a main course is "vastly overpriced", but thank you for your comments.

“Great location.”
Reviewed 20 March 2014

This place was suggested on a beautiful Sunday where everywhere else was overly busy.
A rarity. Its a fabulously peaceful location and there were only a few people around. We sat out by the lake under the trees and had our drink before eating indoors.The staff were friendly and helpful.The food was a little overpriced for the quality and presentation, but it was well cooked.There are plenty of cheaper options and menu was simple. The location, charming lodge-like building, and house wine were excellent and I would definatley return. Great find.

“Don't bother”
Reviewed 6 December 2013

We went on a Friday night and there was a large party who had arrived at 7.30 and a few other tables, by 8.00 we had our starter and main course and by 8.30 we asked for the bill and ready to leave. As we were leaving We couldn't help notice that the party hadn't even been serve any food, obviously this place has issues.
All the above aside, I wonder if maybe this could of been a one off for the restaurant because they had a large table in, though, as we thought the food was really poor. Quality bad, frozen tiger prawns cooked badly had raw garlic on the prawns and very dry, no butter. I had the duck salad which was just okay.
We both had the fillet steak which was tiny cut of meat and which you pay a supplement of £6.00 each for. We both were very disappointed, just not good quality and was dry and overlooked as if they were finished cooking in the microwave, the sauce had no body to it and certainly never tasted as if it had any cheese in the sauce. Would never go back to thus place.

“Dreadful customer service”
Reviewed 21 August 2013

Positives- setting around beautiful lake lovely.
Negatives- Customer service and greeting when we arrived awful, they had a large group and where not in the least interested in serving us, we had booked this meal for our anniversary four weeks prior we were told to order our meal in the next 3 minutes as they had to deal with a large group. Food mediocre have had alot better for the price.
Such a shame we will not be returning.
