If you are looking for an outstanding scenic experience while you eat a Sunday roast, this is the place. My only concerns were the children's portions were larger than the adult portions for food, not that the food was lacking in taste, just those looking for a hearty Sunday roast will need to lower their expectations. Also staff were not...

The staff were very welcoming on arrival. In general they were very smart, professional and friendly. Unlike some places you visit, the staff here were very approachable and helpful. The food was first-class, views were amazing and the whole break was made very welcome.
