I've been here several times over the last 3 or 4 years and it never fails to deliver, rapidly becoming my favourite restaurant, last time was just the 3 course lunch menu which came in at about £30 each, lovely flavours throughout, service excellent, can't wait to go again.

We had a classic room which was fabulous. A wonderful room in the castle walls with an amazing view. The bed, bedlinen and bathroom were first class and service was superlative. I cannot wait to go again.
