    Absolutely stunning. Cooking that delights all the senses, service and ambience to match. We booked a three course lunch and received 6! I particularly loved the crab soup aperitif accompaniment. The sweetbread/mushroom dish was sublime, the duck, the chocolate tart - all the best I’ve ever enjoyed. Service professional yet friendly. I can’t imagine a better lunch.

    Excellent meal. Amuse bouche and pre dessert were superb. Very good quality gluten free bread and the first stage butter was amazing, a real revelation.

    We went on the special Summer Treats menu of five courses and a glass of Champagne for only £49 per person. This was phenomenal value. Superb food and discrete , unobtrusive and skillful service. The madame serveuse and sommelier were particularly impressive. We started with the champagne on the terrace overlooking a lovely garden and had a table inside the restaurant with a similar view. We finished off with a refreshing walk through the grounds by the tingling river.

    Loved everything, particularly the sauces - so smooth and velvety. I loved trying to detect all the various flavours in the dishes. Enjoyed every mouthful.
