Very nice quality Sunday lunch, fast and efficient service, great atmosphere. Choice for the Sunday menu and the weekday menu is great. Choice and size of puddings or cakes outweighs everywhere else.
Brilliant yet again food was good staff were very helpful restaurant very busy - friends came with us We had Lasagne soup cake coffee and coca cola
The food was excellent, we had the Tartiflette. The atmosphere and service is great. A great range of cakes and pudding if you have room for it too!
A great meal in warm surroundings. Three choices of roast dinner. All food was hot. Staff are polite and helpful. Looking forward to our next visit
A lovely meal and friendly staff in lovely atmosphere. Although my sister's husband got the wrong meal (regular not festive) they were most apologetic and gave him a free drink. We love going here and look forward to going again. The food is fantastic and its nice to look around the garden centre and shop before and after.
The food as always was wonderful but the service was slower than usual. I was surprised that on such a busy day there were so few waiting staff on duty, which meant inefficiencies in service, such as people who arrived after us getting their orders taken first. It just seemed a little disorganised. Some beautiful gifts in the shop, and again, we can never resist buying something from there!
Interesting and unusual atmosphere and decor. Very enjoyable meal, freshly cooked. Service good, not hurried. Had a slight problem with the bill, but it was amended without a problem. Friends said it was one of the best Sunday Lunches they had eaten out for a long time. Intend to return in the future.
An amazing scone experience! We ordered coffee and scones and got beautiful warm scones - my daughter had waffles which were a little dry do they helped her by making a sausage con - perfect! There was no pressure to rush - thank you!
A great setting and décor, however I was somewhat disappointed with the Sunday lunch. The plate was swimming with gravy that was very thin - it made the meal very sloppy. The pudding - Apple Crumble was OK but not as good as I would have expected having read the glowing reviews.
Lovely little restaurant. Wide varierty of food on the menu to choose from. Staff were friendly and were quick with their service. Would visit again, they do a lovely looking afternoon tea!!
