Summary

Set in a “glorious” country location, this landmark restaurant-with-rooms boasts nearly three decades in business. Following a brief handover to other management in 2016, longtime owners Gunna and Chris Chown have resumed control of the property to ensure a continuation of the impeccable standards that have carved its reputation.

Summary

The Chowns’ “elegant” restaurant-with-rooms is “set in beautiful grounds” with a “lovely veranda”, and – with its “delicious” food and “unobtrusive” service – has offered a “dining experience to remember” for nearly 30 years now.

The Chowns’ “serene” and “tastefully-appointed”, Georgian restaurant-with-rooms enjoys a “perfect location with lovely garden”, and offers up some “superb cooking” in “silver service” style (which the odd critic finds “on the verge of being pretentious”).
