Had lunch here today and it was a delight. Setting is stunning, sun was shining so thankfully we got to eat outside and take advantage of the view. Food was of a good standard and there was a varied choice. Not a bad price either....More

We were really disappointed with the carvery. There was taste to it, limited selection of vegetable on a small plate and only 2 small slices of meat. Expected more for the price. Setting was beautiful but the food needs improving .

I have read your review and feel completely at a loss as to why you feel any of this is fair or reasonable?! You did come to the Bar to explain the situation about the lost dog and that it had bitten your daughter. Whilst...More
