No detail left to chance, no worry left unresolved, just a simple yet professional combination of excellent service, award-winning menus and a venue fit for memorable moments. Why not come along and sample the combination of professionalism and expertly crafted tranquillity for yourself. A dinner and a stay over will be all you need for that complete peace of mind.

A massive thank you to Lynsey and her team for taking the stress out of a surprise party for my husband’s 50th! It was a day to remember, and we couldn’t have done it without your help. The food was delicious, and our whole family looked after so well. Thanks for making such a difference.
