I went here for a meal with a large group of friends from a club, so the social aspect was really more important than the menu. The location is lovely, particularly on a warm summer's day, with a view over the Solent from the grounds, where we assembled for pre-lunch drinks, and parkland behind. We ate in the marquee, which was attractively set out. The food was OK, and probably reasonable for the price we paid, but I'm not very keen on al dente potatoes, or summer pudding where the juice hasn't had time to soak into the bread. And terrible coffee. But on the plus side, the staff were charming, and it was nice to see the helpful work-experience youngsters from Bay House School being well trained. Would I go back? Possibly, if it were for a group function.
