We were staying at the hotel which was lovely. As it was weekend we could only have a meal there on the Saturday. It was excellent and beautifully served in the elegant dining room. Well recommended and we will be staying there again.

We were staying at the hotel and had originally booked to eat there just one night. However it was so good that we booked for our remaining second night. The usual chef being on holiday, the hotel owner had stepped in - and was brilliant.

Five of us had gone for a pre-ordered lunch which can sometimes be disappointing. The restaurant was beautifully decorated, service (despite them being totally full) was excellent and the food was also excellent. A very good experience, and a restaurant we would recommend. Well done.
