The setting is idyllic, the rooms are comfortable, homely and warm, the staff attend to every single detail and the food is exceptional. The chef's introduction is clever and informative, the wine pairing introduced us to new and creative wines, and the service at the table is inconspicuously attentive. All credit to the management - it's a brilliantly run venue.
Thank you to all who went so far out of their way to make this a memorable occasion. We could have asked for nothing more. I hope that we get the chance to visit again - it would be an immense privilege.
And the birthday cake was a properly thoughtful touch!
