We came for lunch and looked forward to spending a pleasant afternoon at this lovely place.
The menu was disappointing with its lack of choice. The prices were right up there so we thought , this is going to be good regardless. The servings were stingy in size and incredibly disappointing. The lack of flavour was sad. I ordered mussels that were described with chilli. There was no chilli to be found, cooked perfectly, but with absolutely no flavour. My main course was the portion of an entree size. Not a problem for me, but I would imagine someone who was hungry or a man ordering would have been extremely disappointed with the portion size.
I believe a careful rethink from management would go a long way. Having a concise menu is not a problem if everything on the menu is simply stunning in every way. This is an exceptional historical home, the location, the history, the gardens, all create a magnificent day out. If the food can be improved, I believe this place would be packed to the rafters. I hope that management would take these thoughts on board, as we would love to return and see some well thought out changes having been made, and experience the difference.
