I often come here as it is so child friendly. The food is quite pricey but to us it's worth every penny, the play area keep the kids safe and happy before and after eating, so rare to find a venue that is fully enclosed and secure for children. The staff are so friendly and nice to the kids too!... More

Loads of staff on duty but appear to be very lazy and just stand round talking to each other. Asked for mustard and tomatoe sauce and it... More

I booked a room here as we were attending a wedding.. Neither my partner or I had been here before & were very impressed with every aspect of our stay. We arrived early for the wedding & had a drink in the hotel bar whilst we waited for proceedings to begin.. The decor is lovely, plenty of room to mingle,... More
