The food was stunning however the service was patchy, especially when it got busy. Decor was nice, but far too loud. Overall, they really need some more staff and training.

We stopped in for a light evening meal of tapas- service was friendly and efficient. We both had a cocktail each followed by tapas and a mini cheeseboard. All delicious. Bar is on waterfront with great view over lake. Great location and food!

visited 3 separate times for breakfast and each time the food and service was fantastic. my favourites were the hot salmon and the apple porridge and such a lovely environment with the open fire and smaller dinning area.

We chose to have breakfast here and it was lovely. Good coffee. Fabulous decore and free range bacon which I appreciated as it allowed me to have bacon and eggs! Would definitely recommend.
