A definite gourmet experience for both dinner and breakfast. Everything was very fresh, creatively plated and delicious.

We stayed here for 2 nights (our room was beautiful) but it was the restaurant that made the stay extra special. Between us we sampled 6 dishes plus the amuse-bouche and we also indulged in the recommended wines for each course. These were meals to remember with dishes so innovative and flavoursome, expertly complimented by the wine. On both nights, all those dining seemed very happy, in a relaxed atmosphere, free from pretentiousness and eating excellent food. Chef Phil Corrie is an absolute star!

It came as a pleasant surprise when we stayed for dinner, the quality of the food and attention to detail was first class, we can honestly say measures up to any Michelin star restaurant we have eaten at.
Highly recommended!!

We decided to treat and challenge ourselves a little by coming here which is different to our usual meals. We were slightly apprehensive but the staff were extremely helpful, professional and good at putting you at ease. It's true that the portions are not huge but that makes you savour and appreciate them more. The staff recommend that you have all 3 courses which we did and we were certainly satisfied and full. All the food was delicious and interesting, the bread was lovely and service really good. It's good to go out of your comfort zone and this is definitely a good place to do it so recommended!

My friend and I stayed two nights and experienced this fine dining experience both evenings. Wow....an absolute delight. We sat comfortably by the fire for pre dinner drinks. The dining area is smart and modern and overlooks a charming little garden with outdoor seating. The food is beautifully presented and flavours are amazing. Not for the huge appetites but it was wonderful to enjoy something different and memorable. The recommended wines complemented each dish and are certainly worth having. Lovely.
