Excellent, quick service. Food was good but not perfect. Each dish lacking one element but dessert was flawless. Panacotta: not too sweet and wonderfully bandaged with the sharp passion fruit
Best Fathers Day Brunch ever. Friendly staff. Peaceful surroundings. Perfect.

The manager was attentive and looked after us from the word go. We asked to sit outside as was a beautiful day and this was no issue. He asked the chef if we could have a cream tea and that was honoured for us which was a lovely treat. The little brulee pies were devine. Would have preferred clotted cream with the scone but this is down to preference really. A nice selection of sandwiches cakes pies and scones. A lovely country house with lovely surroundings. Thank you x More...

We had a brilliant 3 course dinner for a very reasonable £25 per head. Breakfast was equally as good with a wide selection of cereals nuts, fruit etc. Mine was a full English breakfast cooked exactly as requested. My good lady had eggs benedict described as "perfect". The evening meal menu changes daily a big plus. Slight down side, there had been a wedding the day before and most of the beers and lagers had been drained. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. The bar man was knowledgeable and informative about thd latest gin craze. More...
