    The staff were very friendly, and our food was delicious, we had the chicken shish which was new to the menu and it was very good
    Couldn’t fault it

    Both the service and the food were outstanding, 3 courses all absolutely delicious. Wouldn't hesitate to book again when we visit next time.

    Afternoon tea for a friend's birthday. It just didn't feel special. Difficult to attract the attention of staff on arrival. Nice orangery where it was served, but the table was tatty and it felt cold. Food was attractively served, but let down by the rest of it. The waitress looked blankly when I asked what teas were available, and my friend was told to help herself to coffee from the urn. Really disappointed.

    Stone bass was really tasty and well cooked

    The choice available on the spa menu is very limited. It seems they offer the cheapest possible food for customers that are on spa days.

    The portion that arrived was disappointingly small and was incredibly salty.

    We ended up ordering extra food. Having already spent £140 on a spa we were disappointed to have to order £20 more on lunch.

    There is no table service and the food and drink were both slow to arrive.
