Absolutely fabulous!!
We dined here last night and thoroughly enjoyed not only our meals but the surroundings, views and wines aswell. The food was superb, You couldn’t fault it if you tried! Our waiter was very friendly and knew what he was talking about. I’d give this 10 stars if I could!

I dont know what to say about this place other than it’s great. We stayed at the Hilton for a long weekend (that’s another review of a different kind!) and decided to splash out on dinner for our last night. We booked ahead and asked for a table by the fire (one of) and got it.
The service was impecable and unfortunately we didnt get his name but he was fantastic.
I ordered the cheese soufle to start – it should have come with a “to share” warning – it was huge and it was devine.
I ordered the pork belly – wonderful as it was and committed the cardinal chef sin by asking for the crackling to be crackled a tad more – this was not a problem – I think I felt worse about it than the chef would have.
Our wine was perfect – Wild Earth pinot, great temperature, food was great, service wonderful – overall experience – fantastic.

Had a great lunch here. We had the set menu of three courses which were all delicious. We thought this was very good value for money. Great service and delicious food. Gluten free was no problem even for the bread and Dukkah. Lovely setting looking out over the lake. We will be back.

I had a great meal here recently, as a local from kelvin heights it’s great to have somewhere to head along the lake to.
Had some banter with the two chefs before we sat down to a great dinner. Pork terrine to start was fantastic along with it’s watercress salad, and breads came along with it when requested, great flavours, the scallops to were of a great size. Mains were generous and with a side dish thrown in nearly filled us up. I had the sole with clams ,nice and delicate flavour but very nice.
We manage to squeeze in some desserts which were amazing, so much fun, I had the liquid centre chocolate mousse which popped in the mouth and the brûlée was to die for, service was ok, not as sharp as expected…… Loved it all, here’s go my new local :)
