We live locally and often visit here for lunch or just a drink (I also use the health suite on occasion). We have had the excellent Sunday lunch on a few occasions as well as 'normal' lunch.

I have just come back from an excellent 'Lazy Day for Locals' pamper day with three of my friends. The whole day was excellent value for money with the £20 fee including use of the swimming pool, sauna, steam room and gym, tea or coffee on arrival and £8 off the lunch bill. The staff were very attentive, the facilities... More
