We stayed here on 26.7.14 for a local family party. The room was perfectly fine (although the toilet did make very loud noises, like a saniflow, and pumped out a lovely sewage smell) but on returning at 3am we found the keys wouldn't work in the door - and not because we had been out for the night or were...

We called in on our way home for something to eat, on Father's Day. Thought the prices weren't too bad when looking at the menu. We ordered 2 roast beef dinners expecting a hot scrumptious meal, when what we were actually greeted with was vegetables that weren't even blanched, let alone cooked, the roast potatoes were undercooked and cold ,...

All of the staff were so kind, friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble. The rooms were very clean and comfortable and the whole place had a... More

Food was first class and service excellent. Prices of drinks too expensive and will quickly inflate your bill and leave a sting in an otherwise fabulous evening. The restaurant had a lovely atmosphere.

I went for dinner with my partner and it was beyond awful. We walked in and was ignored for a good 10 minutes whilst the bar staff were playing on their phones and talking amongst themselves. I order a garlic bread basket for the table, it was warm bread buttered.....NOT garlic bread. We let it go as we were hungry... More

We waited for 40 minutes for our food to come- there was only one other couple in the place so way to long to wait.... More
