Food and service of the century!

Visited with my girlfriend recently after local recommendations. It’s a beautiful place with breathtaking views. The staff are very attentive (Sara in particular) and happy in their jobs. The food is the best either of us have EVER had. It was a pleasure to dine here. The dishes are well thought out, spectacular in their presentation and taste like heaven.

The Horn of Plenty is a beautiful venue with gorgeous views across the valley. The house has lots of charm and character and all of the rooms are beautifully decorated with individual character. It doesn’t matter what time of year you visit, it’s a fabulous venue.

We held a celebration lunch here in 2016 for a family birthday and fell in love with the place. The food is incredible, the staff are always friendly and helpful. Nothing is ever too much trouble.

We had our wedding on 4th June this year and the team did not let us down. Leading up to the big day, Julie and the weddings team guided us through the build up and were always on hand to answer any questions and give advice without hesitation. On the day, Shirna and the front of house team delivered a perfect day for us from start to finish.

Another selling point was the fact that we were able to sit down with Chef Ashley and create our own personalised menu. From the reception canapes right the way through to our evening set up, the food was impeccable! All of our guests commented on how amazing it all was.

We cannot recommend the Horn of Plenty enough. It’s become our favourite place!
