grove of trees. As you enter it feels warm and inviting as though you are entering a private home for an intimate dinner party. Open year round the intimate setting is perfect in winter to sit by the fireplace but in the summer the small deck behind the house leads out to a lovely back garden on the edge of the lake> The al fresco dining has seen The Rectory voted “Best Lakeside Patio” by Now Magazine.  The fresh and flavourful menus by Chef Richard Chambers are beautiful, simple and delicious.  This special location is the perfect location to take a break from strolling the islands and linger over a great meal and a glass of wine*.
