Limited menu and on the expensive side. It’s a shame as the venue is great.

I had the scallops which were served with creamed avocado. Perfectly cooked and delicious. Followed by the best sirloin steak I have had in a long while. Very tender and great flavour. I liked the mini onion tart served with it. Food was amazing and we'll presented. Very efficient service and staff were friendly and helpful. The only slightly negative comment would be the steak was served on a wooden block. Would have preferred a plate

An absolutely wonderful dinner for my Fiancé’s birthday. Even went to the effort of bringing her a free desert with happy birthday written on it. Will be returning soon as food is out of this world and team service is exquisite!

Great service in a lovely comfortable setting. We were made to feel really welcome and the afternoon tea was delicious. The scones are very very good and there was more than enough choice of cakes. My only concern was that the choice of sandwich fillings could have been greater - one of our party doesn't eat fish or ham. However, this was soon remedied with specially made cream cheese and cucumber filling. beautiful hotel building.

Service was a little bit slow and slightly chaotic, but staff were lovely, so it really didn’t matter. The food was excellent - local ingredients, well cooked. A great bread and butter pudding.

Amazing food & service can’t fault that! The only thing to note is if you are bringing a dog, I would suggest adding it to the booking form when booking your table. Even tho the site says dog friendly we had to sit in a separate room (still very lovely) but we were questioned to why we didn’t say that we were bringing a dog!
