We had cream tea with Prosecco and the 4 course meal with canapés. All of the food was delicious, not just... More

We were so impressed, during our previous experience, that we were a little concerned it wouldn't be repeated. We had no need to worry as the high standards were exactly as we had remembered. The hotel is in a lovely, peaceful location, within... More
