Initially visited here in June 2015 when on holiday down the road, had a couple of lunch visits, one of which was in the beautiful secret garden bathed in glorious sunshine. Just returned from another visit for drinks only on Easter Sunday evening. The building and decor is wonderful, makes you want to linger a long while as it's so beautifully decorated and cosy. The food we had on our summer visits was delicious, made all the better for the luxurious ambience. Unfortunately we've not stayed here before, so can't comment on the hotel aspects, but generally a very special place.
