Sunday lunch. It was ok not as nice as we had hoped. Meat was a little bland, veg was lacking seasoning, cauliflower cheese was nice, gravy was granules. Really disappointed as not worth the money.

The food here was great! Staff were friendly and attentive. We had a lovely relaxing meal, didn't feel rushed at all. The view from the front is beautiful, especially at sunset when we were eating.
