    Very disappointing. Not up to high standards that we've experienced on previous visits.

    I went there for afternoon tea. Glad food, very good service and lovely views of the castle. Will recomend it.

    Like others comment, the restaurant is about the experience, not the food. If you want a fun night out with a nice view of the castle, go. If you want top-class food, try somewhere else.

    I took a friend for a special occasion. the atmosphere was good , the staff very attentive and we had a great time. Tthe food was excellent and we were not rushed at all. Lots of choice from a la carte or set menus. The duck was tender and the red wine jus amazing, the desserts were beautifully presented on the plates but also tasted excellent. I had mentioned in the passing it was a special occasion for my friend and they surprised her ,and me, with a slate beautifully inscribed, and containing a few sweet treats. All very low key but high on quality. it made our day special and we will not forget it. i will most certainly be back. The ambience was slightly spoiled by a noisy party but there is little anyone can do about that.
