What a wonderful event the Bruce Arms put together for Le Grand Depart. The marquee completely covered the car park making space for up to 100 diners to eat in comfort. The oyster and champagne bar attached was a great draw on the day as well. Our lunch was a relaxed affair, with four courses over the afternoon. A Royal... More

Had the room been of the same standard as the food - would definately been a 5 rating. We were in the blue room at the front of the property which was clean and tidy although shower had some black mould. Just hand wash provided with no shampoo etc. Basic tea/coffee facilities provided but no milk. We were staying on... More

We arrived quite late and were shown to our room which was small and pretty. We quickly got ready and had a wonderful meal made interesting by the wood burner not burning. This was soon rectified. The starters and the wine were great, the fillet steaks were the best we had had in a long time so tender, juicy and... More

Our room was very clean, nicely decorated and each room had a theme, this I will let you find out for yourself but a lovely touch, a kettle... More

I took my husband for a surprise birthday meal last night. We're a busy family and don't manage to eat out very often so when we do it needs to be perfect and we weren't disappointed. We ordered the lemon chicken Caesar salad and the gem lettuce peas and Beetroot to start. Expertly seasoned and very tasty. Then the fillet... More

We visited the Bruce again last Sunday for lunch (see my previous review) I love this place and consider it my favourite restaurant in the UK! There is a fabulous new menu and it was very difficult to decide. I chose the lemon chicken Caesar salad to start followed by Calves liver, which were both absolutely delicious. My husband enjoyed...

It may have been a cold snow filled time to travel, however the reception and staff provided us with the warmest of welcomes. I don't have a bad thing to stay about this wonderful place, and would highly recommend it to anyone. The food was exceptional, and perfectly balanced with a list of lovely wines. The staff were friendly and... More
