Oh NO!! I have our last night of our 10 day vacation booked there in December. Did the CG staff indicate when it would close?

From what I've seen and heard it sounds like they are just updating, but not changing. I hope that is true.

Yea it's pretty much just a change of some things and some new paint on the walls it's not supposed to be a total overhaul.

That's unfortunate. As good as any restaurant may be, it's good to keep things fresh and updated. The could use a general overhaul.

I'm surprised at the duration of the closure if it's just for a fresh coat of paint.

I believe they are changing the furniture, and possibly the layout. We were lucky enough to get window seats last year, but I was surprised how many seats did not provide a decent view if the castle.

They've got scaffolding around the outside of the restaraunt, don't think its just an interior refurb.
