Food is excellent . Sometimes it's difficult to eat as they don't always have availability ( this has happened a lot ) this is frustrating as they have another floor above that could be opened . I have never ever had a bad meal & I eat here approx once per week .

Helpful staff, amazing food, generous proportions and some of the tastiest vegetarian pies I've eaten. My family got the curry and rated it over our local indian restaurant. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

Very comfortable stay, room immaculately clean and handy restaurant next door providing a hearty breakfast each morning. Also great and convenient for an evening meal - no need to search the area for a suitable restaurant. Staff very pleasant and helpful. All in... More

Shown to room by one of the barstaff, and given the usual spiel with breakfast between 7 and 9am. Decided to eat in restaurant/bar, shown to a table by the fire exit. Messed up the order for starters with... More

I used to eat here on a regular basis but the last occasion was not good. We went for Sunday lunch and waited for a table, not a problem as we are used to this but it does become very cramped in the small bar area, the Sunday lunch arrived quickly but the meat was cold, we couldn't get the...

Ate here last night and was impressed with the food. We were served by a girl called Amy who was nice enough. Only disappointing part was we waited 40 mins for our food so plan plenty of time if you eat here. Food was worth the wait and I would most certainly come back. Price of the meal was good... More

Bathroom was ample in size and very clean, there was all the necessary toiletries and towels. The room was reasonable value for money. Views from the property were excellent over the surrounding areas. The evening... More
