The champagne was poured straight away and we were told to help ourselves to the food on offer. The great thing about a dining at a buffet with kids is that there is no waiting around to order or waiting ages for the food to arrive so little people have no time to get restless.

A selection of starters is available which includes soup, prawns, salads, and cold meats.

Next up was the carvery. There is always the choice of two types of meat, with our visit taking place during December the buffet was Christmas themed so the choice was Turkey and Ham. There is also plenty of vegetable choices and usually a curry and pasta dish.

Then came the best bit …dessert! There is a huge chocolate fountain accompanied with fruit, marshmallows, rocky road and profiteroles.

If that is enough there is another table garnished with an incredible choice of desserts including pavlova, mini tarts, fruit, pannacotta, trifle, custard and jelly. Make sure you save some room to fit it all in! Tea and coffee are also available to complete the meal.

After coffee, we had a stroll around the beautiful grounds. On the opposite side of the pool area from the restaurant is a pond packed full of huge Koi Carp. The girls loved watching them and it was a lovely end to lunch.
