We were disappointed that we were asked to sit outside and wait for around 40 minutes to be able to eat. It wasn't the warmest place to have to sit or eat and the staff were busy and not what we would call helpful

We had a very nice meal and wine to celebrate our 54th anniversary. The food was excellent, the staff attentive but unobtrusive. All in all a lovely place overlooking the beautiful lake. A great place to spend an evening.
