    We booked for our Easter lunch and we had the carvery. The food was acceptable, but I believe it should be specified that the restaurant is part of a Retirement Home!
    That is not exactly the most exciting place for a couple...

    The food on the afternoon tea was very nice although mint and cucumber sandwiches bit different! Didn't get our complementary Prosecco. Lots of jam and proper clotted cream but scones too small to use it all. Staff nice but no check back or offer of more tea (pot small)

    It was a wonderful afternoon tea. Beautiful dining area. The food was lovely but perhaps we could have been offered more sandwiches before we started the cakes. Otherwise the food, tea and service were fabulous.
