“Food was great”

Reviewed on 10/05/2021

Our pumpkin soup was tasty and such a big serve, could not eat it all. The orange and poppyseed cake was also pretty moorish. Cannot complain about the view either, over the lake and beyond.

“View is great but quality”

Reviewed on 20/12/2020

View is great but quality is lacking.
Coffee was so so definitely had better
Service was ok. Ordered 3 breakfasts but was only served 2. Had to follow up on the third which they had obviously...
