Our family had a wonderful evening meal here, the team catered to our children's dietary requirements absolutely magnificently, producing their own special menu for them. Hosting and service were flawless and the food a delight all round. This a lesson in the very best customer service.

We had a party of eight with three different diets, including two children who MUST have a fat free diet. The restaurant not only produced a choice of two items for all three courses for them but printed the children their menu, like the rest of us. The freshly baked bread included fat free bread for them and we all... More

Staying in Beer and out for the day with friends, when we decided to try and find a tea room so that we could enjoy a cream tea, we drove around the local area and decided to drive into a town, whilst on route my husband saw the sign for cream teas and pulled in to the car park. We... More

We were looking for an afternoon tea and stumbled onto this amazing place. It is beautiful the owners were extremely friendly. Our partners were shown around the rooms it offers to be amazed. The pricing is very good for the very high standard. We stayed in Beer and this was 20 minutes away.

My husband booked us in for my 40th. We were taken to our seats in a small but cosy restaurant by a lovely host. The portions are small but you can have several, however the food is perfect,beautifully presented and so tasty. However very expensive ( hence four stars) drinks very pricy, and bottles of wine a bit steep. However... More

We visited here as a foursome. No room in the pre dinning areas so we went straight to our table in the restaurant. The pricing is simple, £45 per head for three courses with an entree. The food was good but not that remarkable. I do agree that the food is of a higher quality that most of the surrounding... More

We booked a Friday night meal, as we were staying nearby that week. I had heard that the food was good, but that doesn't go half way to explaining the whole dining experience. The food was second to none, and deserves a Michelin star. The decor was beautiful and very tasteful. Lovely furniture to sit on, cosy and warm lounge... More

We live locally and have often thought about eating here. Wish we had tried it before. We were given a lovely warm welcome and seated in the lounge where we chose our meal options. Then we were taken through to a lovely contemporary dining room. Service was friendly and relaxed, food was absolutely delicious. We were pretty full after two... More
