Excellent food and service once again at the orangery... Tender joints off meat accompanied with a great selection of vegetables, giant yorkshire puddings and rich gravy. The desserts were tasty and looked a picture. We look forward to our next visit in the near future

We were staying at a near by bed and breakfast who had recommended this bistro. Very nice place - the last orders are at 19.30 though so it's not a place to eat late. Friendly service, nice food and in very pretty surroundings.
