Very disappointing lunch. We were not offered dessert had to summons the waiter to order coffee.
An enjoyable meal and experience.
Lovely environment, great service and delicious food.
Our meal was superb. Excellent flavours. Succulent, tender lamb and chicken mains were perfectly cooked and well presented with good colour balance.
Excellent food definitely come back again
We hadn't been for awhile as the standard of food had dropped from its usual 5 star standard but we heard the chef had changed and things were back on track. We were not disappointed as the food was excellent and the service was as good as ever.
Absolutely amazing food, thoroughly enjoyed every course definitely worth the money 😋
Got very hot sitting in window and was quite bright, needed to wear sunglasses at table, need some type of blinds on windows
Great food & excellent service!
Great food 😊
Staff really nice. Food a delight to eat. A pleasure to dine here.
4 of us dined under first table so it was good value but your prices are going up generally. 2 Of us ordered your mussel entree (chef's special) In fact we received oysters. Entree prices were $17-18 but our "Chef's Special" was $20 - not really a special to me ? and certainly not mussels I ordered your lamb main course because it stated on your menu that it was slow cooked for 5 hours. Dish came out with the meat quite rare and red in the middle. and coupled with the "special" entree price I found the whole evening very disappointing
We dined early as a First Table - booking, greeted & seated like honoured guests. Food delicious & ample servings, especially vegetables. Good wine selection. Special occasion fine dining!
Lovely lunch time meal. Good atmosphere. Staff were attentive.
We were impressed with the service which was of a high standard. The food was presented well and was delicious. We weren’t staying in the hotel, we live local and wanted to try the restaurant as it had been recommended as a place to dine by friends .
Money well spent, enjoyed the variety of food, , the English tea was better, great customer service. Would definitely go back again.
The English Breakfast was very weak - needed more than one teabag
Superb service, friendly, accommodating staff, quick meals,in perfect condition
Bread was not cooked in the middle, potatoes were not cooked in the middle, steak ordered medium rare was served well done. Our waitress was lovely and very apologetic, however kitchen staff kept on giving our table filthy looks which made for an uncomfortable time .The rest of the food ordered was lovely however the Chefs need to realise customers have a right to complain especially when you are paying a lot for a dish and it is not up to scratch. We wont be coming back.
The entire party of 16 enjoyed the evening. Would return anytime
Awesome stay and lovely food and staff
Probably a little too much enquiry about our meal and maybe more communication needed with kitchen team about who was taking the orders. Beautiful meals and desserts!!
All staff very friendly and helpful 😀
Very bland food. Cooked well but lacking in flavour.
