We visited the Seaton Lane Inn for a family celebration the restaurant remains beautifully maintained though the service was a little hit and miss it may have been due to training however the food did not disappoint it was artistcally presented to tempt the tastebuds and delightful to consume down to the last crumb if a little overpriced
