Lovely from start to finish the greeting was excellent being shown to our table and being seated we were made to feel welcome. The service was excellent by all and a big thank you from us. Food was well presented and cooked as required as we both had Steaks. We have marked the place as noisy but we was warned about this and also contacted on the Evening that`s good Customer Service not everyone likes noise when dining out.
Once again thank you for a nice Evening out and please pass on our remarks to everyone involved that made that possible
We will return

Restaurant is in a private retirement home, open table bookings go to management office not the restaurant so no booking and restaurant was full with residents. Had to sit in the bat area.
It was a Sunday carvery as booked but not as we thought a carvery would be.

Very misleading on open table.

On arrival we were served drinks on the terrace overlooking the croquet lawn surrounded by gorgeous gardens. Beautiful relaxed setting,friendly staff(without being intrusive )We had afternoon tea that was presented beautifully with an amazing selection of dainty sandwiches and cakes ,endless pots of tea served on lovely white china,highly recommend it.

Great menu with a wide variety of dishes from light bites through to fabulous main dishes. I had the Brie wedges with sweet chilli dip followed by the duck breast . Great wine list too.. also noted a wide gin selection which will be great for drinks out with the girls .. recommend this hidden gem. Will be back with friends and family
