We really enjoyed our dinner here - the food was very good. And reading the reviews everyone said what a peaceful and relaxing place this is. But I'm afraid I found it like sitting in a library everyone talking in whispers and to me there was no atmosphere at all. But I reiterate we enjoyed the food.

We stopped here hoping for a spot of lunch only to be told we could only have a pot of tea and a biscuit so that was disappointing from a place that looked so promising, we did see a red squirrel tho. Staff were pleasant but the place was a bit old fashioned inside for my liking

The service here is second to none.....formal but friendly and smart.The menu is excellent as is the extensive wine list. All our dishes were very good and if there was a slight criticism it would be that some of the accompaniments to my main course were not as good as the amuse bouche, starter, fish course or dessert.....but it was...

I have been coming to this hotel for the last 16 years or so and I can safely say that it is getting better and better as the years roll on. The service is superb; attentive without being overbearing and discreet without being too stand-offish. I particularly value the fact that they take great pride in sourcing all their ingredients...

If you want excellence on every level then this is the place! From entering the grounds, to being received like royalty, the welcome was just perfect. Beautiful rooms, fabulous ambience, everything as it should be, very high standards. Nice pre dinner drinks and food just wonderful. A real dining experience. Can't wait to come again. Thank you for keeping standards... More
