Me and my wife went here for the lunch with jazz. The food was very good although the jazz was mediocre. Not sure it was value for what we paid but it was a good day out as we were celebrating our forthcoming anniversary.

Beautiful hotel in a lovely countryside setting. We came to the hotel for a spa visit, meal and overnight stay. The staff are extremely helpful, hotel is beautifully presented with an amazing spa. The only thing I would suggest for the spa is a swimming pool, even if small it would add to the experience and give people something else...
