Spectacular location. Absolutely beautiful building. I had Sunday lunch, which I'm afraid was a little disappointing. Beef was a little 'chewy' and served quite cold. Nice veg and Yorkshire. Staff were very nice indeed, and the table layout, and room itself were exceptionally good. Perhaps...More

Attended a conference here and the first impressions are of a building with unusual architecture. The dome in particular is a fine building with ecclesiastical undertones. There are beautiful grounds and I would quit happily spend a day here just taking everything in.More
