Service good but you should have a system for remembering who ordered what. Marked down for asking who ordered a dish. Suggest numbering the seats? Noting which seat belongs to which order. My guest ordered a rice dessert and it was very disappointing not enough rhubarb and glugg - not finishes. Prawn bisque delicious but needed a finger bowl of water to rinse fingers. Other dishes first class.

Food service was incredibly slow. It was 1.5hrs before our mains arrived. With no explanation for the delay. Tables that arrived after us were well into their mains before we were served. Simply unacceptable. And the best they could do to compensate us was one free dessert for a party of three. Simply unacceptable.

Was fabulous, my only suggestion would be that it is more segregated from the cafe section of the building. A line of plants between the fine dining and the cafe doesn’t really cut it, there needs to be something more substantial in place. There were cafe patrons wandering in with their muffins that had to be asked to move to the cafe section as the two areas look much alike. The food was fabulous, the staff were fabulous, the views were fabulous, but I feel the space itself let’s down the experience slightly.

Delicious food, and the three course lunch is very good value. The service was outstanding - far superior to most places. The views are spectacular. Well worth the visit.

Excellent place to bring visitors for a very special breakfast. We were surprised at how small the Son-In-Law eggs was in comparison to the other five dishes ordered.

The food was delicious and beautifully presented but the meal service was very slow. Two and a half hours to have a three course meal. That needs to improve. The dining room staff were well presented and very helpful. No problems there; just the kitchen needs more staff?
