Have visited many times in the past but not for 4 years. Omg it has gone down hill since then. Food was bland and poorly presented., such a shame as it has the best views and could be so much better. Won't be visiting again.

The view from the garden was panoramic today with stunning views. However lunch was disappointing and expensive for what I had. For such a stunning view it is a shame the food does not reflect it. Service was good.
