    Interesting first time meal at this restaurant. The hotel has an interesting history that doesn’t seem to be overplayed. One kind of expects Jack Nicholson to turn up at some point with an axe in his hand but he must have been having a nap upstairs! An enjoyable experience and very pleasant staff.

    I enjoyed an early evening meal at 6.00pm seated by the window with the stunning view. No wine with meal (2 course) for £27.50 which includedCatch of The Day (pan fried bass) with leeks and potatoes. A very nicely presented Cheesecake with fruit and Ice Cream to follow. The traditional dining room experience at Knoll House is always a good experience for us locals and visitors to beautiful Studland.
