Beautiful building, great menu, fantastic service. We had our son birthday last week end and had a great time with a fantastic dinner and wine. Excellent service for families and kids. Stay clear from the bruschetta though... seriously overpriced... everything else is great.

We stayed in the lovely Hermitage Lodge. The restaurant overlooks the garden and vineyard. This vineyard produces the grapes that are used to make the wine sold in the restaurant. The food was good. Pasta was yum. Service was great too.
