Got there at 1pm and the restaurant was busier than on previous occasions which was nice and we were greeted by smiling staff who showed us to our table. The thing I liked... More

We got a good all inclusive rate at 190.00 pounds for two people inclusive of Dinner, Bed & Breakfast which we thought was great value. Service was excellent. Accommodation was good.... More

We recently held our wedding reception at this lovely hotel and have to say the staff could not have been any better. A massive thank you to Joe and the catering staff for laying on an afternoon tea plus an evening buffet of fish and chips. All of our guests were full of praise at how much effort was put... More

We are quite local and so have been many times. Have stayed once over night for a wedding- room was lovely. Have been countless times for afternoon tea- which is very very good. Also have had a few wonderful evening meals, at nearly £30 per head it's not cheap but you will leave stuffed and happy. Lots of food, and... More
