I highly recommend Lilys - we have eaten here many times and have never been disappointed - the food is reliably good and the servers are friendly. An excellent experience from start to finish in a perfectly beautiful setting on Lily Lake.

Excellent breakfast. Brilliant service. Great coffee. Crispy poached eggs are a nice twist. Perfect morning for a walk around the lake.

Five of us had lunch there. The food was very good but the service seemed a bit disorganized. If you have time for a very leisurely lunch, the service would not be an issue.
