Beautiful setting and exceptional food. The evening started with the owner introducing us to the five course dinner ahead - very entertaining. The dinner and presentation were absolutely excellent and served by a very helpful and knowledgable team.

The menu has a lot of variety and the food is presented beautifully. A little bit pricey but you will have a lovely evening . If you venture into the garden watch the steps they can be slippery.
