It is a five roohotel above a pub restaurant, so expect some noise until just after closing time. The food downstairs is good and... More

Had a family meal here and i didnt realise id ordered a plate of grease with a side of mixed grill, the chips were good quality and my partners scampi was good and the kids meal was a particularly good portion (i didnt try it.). Food is quite expensive and the drinks can be a bit eye popping.

When we arrived the staff were wonderful and this was how it stayed for the whole weekend. I am a Pernod drinker so when they only had enough for one drink on our arrival, they sent out a staff member to buy another.

We all opted for different options and I had the vegetarian enchiladas with chips and salad. The meal was lovely, however... More
