Admittedly we were staying at Mont Rochelle anyway so was very easy to get to, but the food was excellent and great service.

Attentive staff and a most enjoyable light lunch. Has had a general upgrade especially inside, although we always sit outside for the views. Menu varied and very well priced.

We called in to country kitchen for wine tasting and lunch. Having sat at our table for 15 minutes and watched waiters coming and going to other tables , but without acknowledging us, I went and requested service. The service was reluctantly polite and unwelcoming. The food was very good and the wine was pleasant. The location is great and... More

Booked lunch here whilst on a few wine tastings around the area. Wonderful location and views across the valley. Food was fresh and tasty. The deserts are great too. Derek, our waiter was lovely, chatty and very enthusiastic. Couldn't fault anything.

We had some great food, well cooked and served with very pleasant style. The restaurant was very quiet the evening in question. However, this allowed for quiet meal with views of the valley.
