What some of our guests are saying about our food...
10/10 for the lemon flan alone!
Food superlative and sustained us after being out and about all day. Amazingly I did not put any weight on after 2 delicious puds per night!
Thoroughly enjoyed the food & with great variety & choice every evening. Thankyou
What can i say about the food.....I have never ever been so well fed outside of my family home...Gail's cooking is second to none...i might of had one or two seconds....
Every meal delicious and being able to serve our own vegetables etc allowed you to take just what you needed better than an overfilled plate arriving at the table. Quality of produce very good.
Food was First Class thanks Gail.
