    Food was exceptional in a perfect location...just a shame wasn't busy as the restaurant and bar lacked a little atmosphere. Staff were great and very attentive. Only downside was the following mornings breakfast arrangements were being setup and didn't make it feel very relaxing while we enjoyed our last drinks. Will definitely be back and tie up an overnight stay to explore the grounds and Spa.

    Beautiful setting on this peaceful intisland, with well-kept grounds and a fast-flowing river. It would have been nice to get a welcome on arrival, but you have to guess where to go, once inside the main building. Bit of trial and error. We had afternoon tea in the dining area, adjacent to the drinks bar. The china used was very pretty and decorative. The tea itself was served on a traditional triple cake stand. The sandwiches were excellent, with a substantial amount of filling (egg, cucumber, Coronation chicken, and soft smoked salmon mousse). The fruit scone was delicious, with cream and tasty jam. The plain scones were from a different recipe, and less nice, we thought, as more like a crisp bread roll. The cakes were good (didn't have room to eat the lemon posset, but it looked very tasty. Service was friendly and attentive. Very few people, so nice and quiet, and nice view of the gardens and river.
