Absolutely outstanding food and excellent service. The atmosphere was slightly reduced by a couple who felt it was acceptable to use the restaurant and grounds as an unsupervised playground for their young children. Keep up the fantastic work Tantalus!!

We had a lovely lunch thank you. The food was divine, some of the best I’ve ever had. So glad we went for the wine pairings as well, all the wine we had was delicious. Our server was lovely. Not sure of her name unfortunately. Only thing that could be improved was the serving of the meals, often some of the male servers didn’t know who was eating what. I’m sure you’re aware of having systems In place to know who is having what. All in all a delightful experience for a special occasion.

A large and boisterous group dining close by were very noisy and made conversation with my partner difficult. It would have been great if they had been seated in a private room. Otherwise the setting is lovely.

Stunning surroundings. Amazing service, friendly yet professional. Food was delicious and well presented. I like the set menu idea as it stops people taking up tables all day when only ordering a bowl of fries. We will be back 👌
