An unforgettable and unique dining experience on an extraordinary island

Named after the hotel’s founder, theatre producer Archie Nettlefold, his eponymous island restaurant offers a less formal dining experience than The Grand Ballroom but nevertheless retains an air of Art Deco elegance and exclusivity.

What a fabulous hotel. It was like walking back in time: the decor was amazing. The staff were fabulous and the food and drinks were out of this world. Nothing was too much trouble, the staff were attentive without being invasive. Would definitely go back again.
