What a treat. Circumstances meant that we didn't have as much time as we would have liked to linger over our afternoon tea but that didn't stop us enjoying a delicious feast, beautifully served in a lovely Christmas setting. Many thanks to all involved.

Lovely afternoon tea. Brilliant service from Mina and the Garden Room was a perfect setting. The food was outstanding, both savoury and sweet with exquisite pastries. Will definitely be recommending and returning!

Food was thoughtfully put together, starters more interesting than mains which all needed more seasoning & taste.

Beautiful food, gorgeous dining room and lounge area. Brilliant atmosphere. Service could not be better. Our waitress was professional, efficient, engaging, welcoming. Great views of the gardens and lake. Idyllic, we will be returning. Thank you to all. Christmas decorations and log burners, what more could anyone want.

The room was just a little cold. However we couldn't fault the decorations, the friendliness of the staff and the food was excellent.

I’m afraid the restaurant was freezing and the marble tables didn’t help. The table setting was poor and the general decor needs attention. The food was acceptable. There was no flavour in the Venison tartare and the Turkey was just ok. The potatoes and vegetables were cooked well but sadly cold. We did inform the waitress. Overall very disappointing

Lovely food & surroundings & delightful staff. Shame about the parking! I arrived to be told there were no spaces available & sent back down to the main (very busy) car park where I eventually found a space. I then had to walk up the hill, in pouring rain & very unsuitable shoes.

We had a lovely lunch with your two young children on a very wet Saturday! The service was fabulous as I was worried we might not fit in with it being a ‘nicer’ type restaurant, however no such worries, we were made so welcome and enjoyed a relaxed but very special meal. Despite lockdown it was a lovely atmosphere and we will definitely eat there again. The only thing I would change would be flatter plates for the kids as they had slightly raised plates that made cutting up fish and sausages a little bit of a challenge, but everything else was prefect.

Excellent service, it would be better if you could leave a tip on the card machine as we didn’t bring any cash. Really high standard of food.
