The staff were very friendly and the food was nice. I had the mutton bird main which you've got to do once in your life. I will say even thou it was ok it wouldn't be something alot of people would like.

Had a really lovely few days at church hill, in very comfortable and new accommodation. Highlight was the restaurant with a quirky wine list and an interesting mix of beers. I have never been on a holiday where I have been fed so handsomely. The...More
