Even the crest on the menu pays homage to the illustrations that once decorated the walls of this critically acclaimed restaurant.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon tea service. The setting was beautiful and the service was wonderful.
We went with a community style dinner as part of a business event, and all the food right from the appetizers like the wagyu beef to the sumptuous lamb shank and variety of delicious salads, was amazing!
