    Staff very attentive and polite, manager also kindly found us a table at short notice. Cuisine here is above average and was o f good quality and sufficient in portion sizes. We had the Chateaubreaund platter for 2 and it was amazing.. cooked to perfection. All served in calm nicely lit surroundings.

    Staff were very welcoming and we were shown to our table quickly. Food choice was very good as were the wines. Qulity of both was excellent. We were allowed to eat at our pace with no intrusive questions about the food etc. After dinner drinks arrived quickly.

    Interesting location. Limited food choice. Beef and vegetables undercooked. Disappointing and unlikely to return.

    I was disappointed with our Saturday lunch and annoyed that I didn’t check the , very average at best, menu. The pavlova was largely some uncooked Italian meringue slop and the second pot of coffee was limp despite the fact that we had sent back the first pot that tasted of dishwater. Lovely staff food needs a major re think. We watched wonderful afternoon teas being delivered and wondered why the massive mid match !

    The meals we had were of a standard we would expect from this hotel, the service we received from staff was excellent and the food taste and presentation was very good. Unfortunately my wife suffered very bad sickness during the night and we suspect it was the desert she had( lemmon posset) at our evening meal , we had the same food throughout our stay apart from the desert. We informed the management and they noted the issue. Of course we cannot say for certain that the desert was the cause of the sickness.

    The environment was delightful , as were the staff, however the service was slightly slow considering the simplicity of the menu. I think the kitchen is capable of a better quality of lunchtime experience but was probably catering to families with younger children as it is the summer school holidays . Overall it was a successful outing for our family of four , ranging in age from !8 up to 88 years . The garden was a delight and we finished off our lunch by having tea amongst the bees and flowers . My best suggestion would be to add a simple but sophisticated fish dish to the list of main courses.

    We enjoyed the afternoon very much ,visiting the house was amazing...the cream tea was lovely especially the little touch of Happy birthday written in icing on a plate .
