We stayed at Rosedale Manor for two nights and our meals were served at Philip’s. They were delicious - especially the raisin bread. Lovely couple to chat with. Turns out Linda was from Vancouver Island, same as us.

The food is excellent. Linda and Philip give it personality. Only open in the summer and only until 3 p.m. Limited menu but all food is really good. Small but nicely appointed.
