Attended a wedding recently at this hotel and have to say it seemed to go like clockwork. The staff were helpful and dealt with the changes from setting up the ceremony to setting up the tables for the meal and ultimately turning it into a dance floor for the evening really efficiently and with minimum fuss. While catering for about... More

Always loved the eccentricity of this place, i mean the staff , not the building. The staff are a delight, from the Portuguese with their almost, dare i say it, Germanic efficiency to the wonderful young stout Scottish chap, who plays master of ceremonies with such aplomb and would not be out of place in a Dickens novel.They are a...

We use the Garvock for our weekly business breakfast meeting on a Tuesday. The service is great, facilities are excellent and the butchers sausages on a roll rock :-) Would definitely recommend to anyone needing a good well presented space for business.

Love going here, have been many times and always had a good meal at worse and sublime at best. Quiet different from going into a normal restaurant as when you go in, you wait in the parlour area when you arrive and have a drink and munch on some nibbles while your table is made ready (doesn't matter if you...
