We ate in the restaurant twice during our short stay in the hotel. The menu is a little limited but the quality of the food was very good. The staff were attentive without being over bearing and the general atmosphere was also good. We’d have...no hesitation eating here again if we were staying at the hotel or staying elsewhere in the area as it’s open to none residents.More

We had a wonderful time yesterday for my brother’s 40th birthday. The food was really excellent and the marquee was beautiful. All the staff who assisted us were incredible. It really is a beautiful location. I don’t think it could’ve gone better!

Ate here as part of our stay at South Lawn Hotel. Menu choice and quality of the food for our evening meals were amazing. We stayed in the hotel for 2 nights but frankly could have stayed a week and chosen a different main course...every night such was the variety of dishes. Service was excellent - the staff are all so friendly and accommodating. Dined in the dedicated area for dog owners and our four-legged friends were also made to feel very much at home.More

The Cedar Tree Restaurant is excellent, offering a menu that suits all tastes and reasonably priced. All the Covid restrictions are in place and are followed by the staff to the letter. This led to the guests treating one another respectfully and observing the common...niceties. The food was first class, we particularly enjoyed the fish and seafood dishes which were very creative and tasty! Service was friendly and effective, the breakfast was hot, cooked too order and very filling. Can’t wait to return.More
