The à la carte menu is available at £55 for three courses whilst a seven course tasting menu priced at £68.50 is also available, which can also be accompanied by a series of wines specially chosen by the sommelier to accompany each dish.
The restaurant's light interior makes it a lovely setting, particularly when combined with a pre-luncheon or dinner aperitif on the terrace or a stroll around the hotel's beautiful gardens.
