So incredible to see the amazing views and gardens. The brunch is wonderful with everything you need and even things you don't like mimosas!

We had 2 appetizers and two mains. Of the four 2 were very good and 2 poor. Should have returned my overlooked stuffed lobster. For that much money go to either Kimberleys (excellent) or winfields (very good).

Heard that this place had great breakfast! Was really disappointed - pricey, no bacon!!! Scrambled eggs had seen better days and the pancakes ran out - staff didn't restock. Save your money & go someplace else
