Had a really lovely and relaxed lunch here. The staff were attentive and the food was really lovely. It has a lovely feel about it. I will certainly go again. I thought it was great value for money,despite the fact I was treated to lunch. Highly recommended.

Booked high tea for a casual hen do. Lovely food and settings but felt very rushed and didn't seem too happy that we wanted to enjoy the sunshine outside. Such a lovely place for afternoon tea will definitely return for cream tea but probably not high tea. Friendly staff apart from that.

family gathering, opted for the fan of melon to start with apricot coolie. Couldn't taste any apricots, this sauce was tasteless although fruit nice and fresh the actual melon had several hard places. Also had the salmon, which was fresh again, and so were the vegetables.

We absolutely loved our wedding menus and the food quality and service. Nicely presented, tasty and the chef spent time going through options to choose what was best for us. Our guests still talk of the lemon posset and the giant crème teas, all organic and locally sourced. We'd love to come back for a nice romantic dinner - their... More
