Four of us had lunch on the decking today in glorious sunshine. Pizza , wraps and steak sandwiches were ordered. Food very good but service a bit hit and miss. Would try again as the food was good

Beautiful setting, the building and gardens are stunning. The Sunday set menu is very good value and the food really lovely. We'll definitely be back.

As a party of eight we came here for a pre Christmas meal. Some of us had the set Christmas meal and the others choice from the others menus. Well it may have been busy, on this Saturday everning, so that could be reason food was poor. Vegetarians can get food, but not a good meal.

Booked an afternoon tea for my mum and myself. The whole occasion was dreadful from start to finish.

The food itself was terrible, tasteless sandwiches, cheap margarine spread thickly so you could not distinguish... More
