Dinner was in a different league to the other local restaurants - worth the extra! The little pre- courses added to the experience. And a nice touch - ladies are given a little stool to push their handbag on - sweet!!

The restaurant offers mostly dishes with fish caught in the lake, but if you prefer meat, you won't miss a thing. Very fine dining and a very friendly staff. They immediately defect if you prefer a formal diner or if they can threat you a bit more informal and make a joke.
