Stunning - absolutely stunning. I was at Castle Hill Restaurant a couple of weeks ago to celebrate my husband's birthday.

The weather was not that good so no nice pictures like yours.

I hope you got a chance to enjoy the restaurant and have dinner and a cocktail.

Best of luck

This is truly a winner.

Hi Janice,

Unfortunately they had a wedding reception going on this day. The place sure does look beautiful! We planned for a nice, albeit pricey dinner up in Newport before I set up.

Anyone interested in prints, heres the link to my online store. #9625176
