I felt compelled to write about this restaurant as everything about it was impeccable. The service, the food, the attention to detail and the lovely atmosphere and decor. As I’m currently pregnant I’m obviously having to be careful with certain dishes but this wasn’t a...More

Booked for part of a treat for my wife's 60th birthday, we had already decided to have the taster menu in advance. It was the first time we'd had a taster menu without knowing what it comprised. After checking whether we had any allergies or...More

Our second visit - always a treat. Fresh bread, clear jelly and berry soup in between courses add interest. Coffee by the fire and petite fours finished a lovely evening. Staff are welcoming. The food is delicious and always beautifully presented.

A last minute lunch opportunity with friends was elevated with unusually good food. Classics well executed and good less common options. Service very friendly if occasionally a bit bossy. It’s almost worth it for the drive to get there through beautiful countryside.

We wanted a special celebratory Sunday lunch and certainly got that! The meal was delicious and the staff were professional, friendly and efficient. The service was exceptional. After our starter we were served an appetiser of tomato and chive jelly and between the main and...More

Really not sure what happened here with his Sunday afternoon . We arrived and sat down in a living room type environment. Then offered a menu with some eclectic food choices. Then bread came and then some rather odd jelly in a glass. Food ordered...More

Fantastic service by friendly staff with brilliant food that changes with the seasons to ensure fresh tastes to suit everyone. Lovely little tray of sample cakes to go with the coffee afterwards to, probably better than afternoon teas we’d paid for in other places, and...More
