I had a family and friends celebration held here for 30 people. The food was superb, champagne free flowing, the setting was beautiful and the staff impeccable.
Nothing was too much trouble and they did their utmost to ensure we had a wonderful day.
I have visited the restaurant on several occasions and always been impressed with the quality of the food and the level of service.
I can’t recommend it highly enough and hopefully will return many more times.
