Came for the weekend and have to say one of our best weekends away.. The Fort will bend over backwards to make you happy, the owners work non stop and always stops to speak to you. I strongly recommend coming here.

I have eaten here several times and am always impressed with the quality and quantity of food on offer. Nothing is too much trouble for the staff and you always get a warm welcome, as well as a cheerful goodbye. The portions are huge. I normally opt for the half portion menu at lunch time and would highly recommend the... More

7 very happy customers (including a very fussy 5 year old) the food was excellent! The meal was for a special occasion and the staff could not have been anymore friendly and accommodating. We will definitely be coming back again and look forward to trying more off the menu!

I visited this restaurant with my friend on Friday 17th April at 5 o'clock for dinner. We had starters and a main dish each. I had the pate which was ok except it arrived with 4 of the smallest oatcakes I have ever seen. A portion of toast would have been a much better option if I had know. My... More

Stayed here for one night on sat 11/4/15. Lovely clean room , really friendly staff, (especially the old lady at breakfast). The late bar was a bonus also! Breakfast was just what was needed after a heavy night, loved the fact there was no pressure to check out unlike some other hotels. Will def visit again!

Really good pub and pub grub. They also do half portions on main courses at a reduced price. The premises have been refurbished and this is one of the best pubs which provide good food. The management / owners are very experienced and the staff are first class
