It only takes about 5 minutes to cross but if you just miss it you may have to wait around 15 minutes for it to come back and go again. The food in the restaurant is top quality and comes... More

Waiting staff were excellent and appropriately attentive. The Munster Room has a lovely dining room experience. Food was gorgeous, sourcing local foods. The menu was different with a selection of complimentary foods on the same plate. A real experience.

I decided to take our vising guest to afternoon tea as I felt the setting and hopefully the meal would impress. It certainly did. We were served with a selection of home cured meats which were really good. We then had the selection of sandwiches, scones and cream and various pastries (photo attached). Presentation was very good and the quality... More

My only complaint is the half a pak choi with my monkfish but otherwise the food from appetiser to amuse bouche to my after dinner hot chocolate was sublime. And the eggs benedict for breakfast is highly recommended.

From the amuse-busche to the entre'.. I was disappointed. The amuse-busche tasted of weak tomato water, my lamb starter gamey, and the veal entree tough and difficult to eat. The service was OK, silverware not replaced when used and a little distant. On the other hand the smoked trout was very nice and the cod was perfectly prepared. Creme Carmel... More
