The setting of this stylish restaurant is especially impressive in summer as it overlooks our enclosed gardens and you can enjoy the long, bright evenings while sampling Head Chef's fantastic creations. The menu is extremely versatile including the freshest seafood and locally sourced meat dishes. The restaurant is set within a dramatic & glamorous backdrop, inspired by the eponymous flower.
