So my first visit here for my youngest brothers wedding. A lovely setting with incredible views, extremely courteous and friendly staff who could not do enough for you and a three course meal where each course was superb(very rare these days, 1 course is usually not so good) but I and everyone who attended thoroughly enjoyed all three courses. It's... More

The restaurant was very warm and welcoming as were... More

I was here for the 3 course lunch with a family group of 14. To start I had the Tomato and Mozzarella salad with strange yellow heart of lettuce! Plenty of mozzarella but two small cherry tomatoes seemed a bit mean. No flavour to the small amount of dressing so I tried adding salt. None of the salt grinders worked!... More

It was blooming awful, I wouldn't recommend going here again, if my life depended on it. Which was more upsetting is that, I emailed my issues and queries to be instantly dismissed and my comments would be taken on board. At no point has the Owner or the Chef attempted to resolve any of my queries, or to say that... More

Had a really lovely and relaxed lunch here. The staff were attentive and the food was really lovely. It has a lovely feel about it. I will certainly go again. I thought it was great value for money,despite the fact I was treated to lunch. Highly recommended.

Booked high tea for a casual hen do. Lovely food and settings but felt very rushed and didn't seem too happy that we wanted to enjoy the sunshine outside. Such a lovely place for afternoon tea will definitely return for cream tea but probably not high tea. Friendly staff apart from that.
