It is a state of mind.”

“Fabulous time”

We spent three nights over Xmas at the Grange. The owners and staff worked incredibly hard and nothing was ever too much trouble. Everyone went out of their way to make sure that the guests had a fabulous time.

“Like clockwork”

A group of just over 20 ladies, were seated in a beautifully decorated room, of just the right size.. The lunch went like clockwork. There was no waiting for certain meals to arrive and the staff were very efficient. For me, this must have been the best Christmas lunch (in a restaurant) that I have had in years.

Food absolutely perfect

Superb Boxing Day family lunch, even better than last year. Smooth efficient service, good atmosphere and ambiance, food absolutely perfect. A most pleasurable 3 hours spent in comfortable surroundings. We’ve already booked for next year!
