We decided to visit this beautiful property to celebrate a birthday/anniversary meal with friends. The hotel is set in beautiful surroundings and has interesting decorations; the numerous sitting rooms were inviting and comfortable with friendly staff. Unfortunately the dining room was very cold and less welcoming. However, our main disappointment was the incredibly overpriced menu and its limited choice. The... More

While staying in the hotel over the festive period, we did experience the resturaunt surroundings. Unfortunately, due to spending our stay with a four legged friend we couldn't use the resturaunt for every meal time. The hotel did accommodate and made meal times comfortable for us in the bar area.

Great favours and well cooked, but the service is not up to a high enough standard. Would be an ok, 1 rosette restaurant, but not really a 2 rosette restaurant to me.

The food was amazing!! Well priced and perfect portions. Dinner was my favourite and the breakfast was cooked to order. Was completely satisfied with everything that was put in front of me. I would recommend this even if you are not staying as it's worth the drive

Considering there's meant to be a top chef in the kitchen we were disappointed with the food overall - trying to hard to be something it's not - needs to get back to basics with some hearty fare instead of fancy measly morsels with fancy swirls.

Very average. Dining room lacks atmosphere it has a cold feel about it. Tables looking a bit tired, cloths would help at breakfast, staff need some leadership and training, they are keen and look like they want to do a good job. Food is average needs better delivery.

Had scallops as starter, followed by steak, pepper sauce and vegetables and a lovely cheese board. Perfecto! All included in DB&B rate.

We chose to eat in the restaurant for the two nights we were there. The wine list was extensive and not overpriced and the meal was expensive; but creative, beautifully presented and well cooked. However on the second evening I ordered a sirloin steak, which involved a six pound surcharge, and was supposed to be served with French beans. When... More

We were staying at the hotel during May 2016. The hotel had recently changed hands so were wondering how things would go. No worries, seamless and professional service. The menu is very entertaining, good element of local produce. The portions are designed to entice the taste buds but not overfill. The lamb wa particularly good. We enjoyed some excellent wines...
