Beautiful setting! Wonderful day for it so we had lunch outside in the garden. The Sunday lunch sharer is such a great idea, trying all the different starters and the main was amazing! Lots of gravy which is important!!! Service was spot on.

    Dining room and table nicely set and a good choice of food on the menu. The food was well presented and cooked and first class. Thoroughly enjoyed the brisket (but would have liked more gravy, despite asking for more) and our friends thought the fish was first class. Need more attention to service - no side plate offered for the bread and even though we asked for a soup spoon, it never came and no one around to ask for one again.

    The staff were lovely throughout from greeting through table service to the end. Meals were beautifully presented, ample and delicious. The menu is varied and great value for money, but particularly good for fish..the sea bass was excellent, as was the salmon. The vegetarian selection could be a little more imaginative..goats cheese tart and the vegetable bolognese on the early bird. The desserts were scrumptious and with great portion size! Overall, we had such a lovely evening. This is relaxed fine dining restaurant that we would certainly recommend and will be back in the near future, thank you!

    Went for afternoon tea with my wife and mum. Had the room to ourselves, which was a bonus. Afternoon tea was really good and more sizeable than many others we've had. Service was pleasant.

    We did not like ur system of small sharing portions. We would rather choose the dishes we like. We also felt it was wasteful.

  • ((*** 14 November 2017 by Deborah from Darlington

    I am sorry to say we found the sharing Sunday lunch very disappointing. Diners really need to be made aware that there is only 1of everything each ie 1 slice of parsnip 1 battered cauliflower, 1 piece of potatoe. The meat is served on a wooden tray and it was impossible to distinguish between the lamb and the pork. The beef was ok, and the chicken arrived later.

    Desserts were fine. Staff were excellent, no complaints, they are put in a very difficult situation be having to serve such tiny portions. I realise that more vegetables may be requested but why not just serve them with meal.
