Beautiful setting with excellent service throughout. We had the seven course tasting menu. All the courses were to our liking, sensible sizes, perfectly cooked and well spaced out - well done! The wine was splendid too!.

The restaurant is delightful and country style. The food is superb and the taster menu very interesting and gives you a flavour of many dishes. You can have drinks first in the lounge and relax before going into dinner, a wonderful experience with superb staff.
