From the atmosphere to the food it is deliciously relaxing and a very enjoyable experience. The staff are friendly and nothing is too much trouble.
Really enjoyed breakfast this morning for Mothers day. Good service and well cooked food. Make sure you book on busy day's as it was fully booked.
Always enjoy coming here! Had afternoon tea and came away absolutely stuffed!!! Fab staff, lovely surroundings and amazing food! Looking for ages to the next visit.
Was a lovely dinner today and was very quick to bring the food ! Staff are all so friendly and the cakes are just so yummy !
Excellent venue, friendly staff and great food. I can't rate this place highly enough. Greeted by a huge roaring fire, we were slightly early, but our table was ready for us. We were made very welcome as soon as we arrived and were updated on the menu straight away, so that we could make informed choices on our varied requirements. We will definitely return.
Lovely Sunday lunch and nice service. Only criticism was we were told that one person out of our group of 6 would have to go without a Yorkshire pudding as they had ran out! We were compensated with some cauliflower cheese but still found it hard to understand why more yorkies could not be made. Will definitely return.
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.
We came to this restaurant for the first time and had a thoroughly excellent meal. A super relaxed atmosphere and the staff are so helpful. Great selection of food. We had a small child and a baby with us. We will certainly be booking to come back.
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!
Bought one adult fish and chips and one kids meal of sausage and chips. The fish was delicious and very nicely and freshly cooked. The chips were economy oven chips and not that pleasant. My son was a bit disappointed with his meal which, although much cheaper than the adult one, was pricey for the size compared to many local pubs and restaurants. Mushy peas a bit cold.
