Hi. Our family of 4 went to your hotel for a combination of my retirement, and my son's 24th birthday. We had a great evening enjoying the fine dining experience.

    Taste menu a true delight, 6 coarse with wine selection a must
    There was an 8 course
    From 1 - 6 a taste extraviganza, my favourite being the beetroot and lime and the Tia desert. But this would divert the fact the beef was so delicious a course. I cannot recommend the whole ambiance, of resturant and hotel enough

    Food was delicious and the staff were lovely, the dining room was beautiful and the atmosphere was relaxed with a touch of luxury. However, I have a couple small criticisms - the portion size was very small and although the main event on the plate was beautiful some proper side vegetables dishes would've been welcome - (I don't class one slice of potato on the plate as a side dish). Our starters went cold very quickly as the plates were cold. The dark chocolate mousse was amazing but the passionfruit soufflé did not taste of passionfruit (there certainly was none present in the dish) however the accompanying sorbet was gorgeous. Service was friendly and attentive but a bit slow......

    We went here as a surprise for my mum's 70th birthday. She has always wondered what it would be like to try food at a restaurant like this. We were not disappointed. We were made to feel relaxed and welcome from the start and sat in the comfy lounge with some nibbles and a drink. The amuse bouche was salmon with caviar which melted in the mouth. My lobster starter was stunning. I had the cod which was also divine. All flavours were so fresh, intense and delicious using incredible produce. Each plate tasted as good as it looked. The pudding, coconut panna cotta was creamy and well balanced with fruit. As a surprise they did a birthday plate of petit fours with hand piped birthday message which was such a special touch. My mum's face was priceless. An incredible and memorable memory to share with my special mum. Thank you.

    Comfortable surroundings, nice atmosphere, chatty and personable staff. Food exceptional, small but perfectly presented portions, great flavours. Lobster, Cod, lamb all beautifully cooked. Home made breads delicious. Petit fours even came with a happy anniversary written on the plate a nice touch
