Lovely setting, with very attentive service, sometimes a little intense. Good choice of starters, but if you like a roast, not great options with small choice of vegetables. Wonderful choice of sweets. Not the place if you want to be waited on. You are paying for a wonderful setting.

My expectations were low when told it was a buffet but I was very wrong. The choice was very diverse & abundant. I'm a vegetarian & I did not feel robbed or limited in my choices compared to my meat eater husband. Staff very attentive. Decor & furniture well used & dated. Word of advice - pace yourself. Good place... More

I booked for a large family group for an 18th Birthday. I did try to book for lunch but they wouldn't accommodate our group but they could for evening meal which doesn't make sense. A bit annoying as my guests travelled quite a distance. The service was very good, the food was lovely and perfectly cooked. Everyone enjoyed the variety... More
