My wife and I stayed for a couple of nights. The room (in a block of motel style rooms detached from the Restaurant and Bars) was spacious clean and warm. It had as you came into a small entry area a toilet to one side and shower room to the other. The bed was a standard size double, with a... More

We stopped here on spec, after visiting Cothele NT. We were warmly welcomed by staff, the lunch menu was comprehensive, the restaurant was clean and tidy. Service was prompt, food very good, and we felt the staff really cared about visit. Thank you, we will return.

Stayed for 2 nights. The room cost JUST £40 a night. This is not a hotel as you expect it to be. Instead of a large tall building the hotel accommodation is chalets at the back of the restaurant/bar. The parking is directly outside you chalet. You have your own front door! On entry we had a bathroom on the... More

Had a one night stay to attend a family party in the attached restaurant. (Separate review) The accommodation is all chalet style in the grounds, parking is possible close at hand. At this price range I did not expect five star but the chalet was adequate. The beds were comfortable with clean linen and good towels were priovided. Heating was... More

Recently refurbished and under new name wasn't sure what to expect. Pleasantly surprised by modern, fresh interior of restaurant. Staff friendly and attentive. Food excellent value on special set lunchtime menu and absolutely delicious. Herby plaice fillet served with crushed new potatoes in pesto followed by chocolate brownie and icecream. Fresh, tasty and well portioned. £12. Will definitely eat here... More

We visited this place for my wife's birthday treat. We found the menu over priced un imaginative . The cost of basically fish and chips about £15. The atmosphere was cold staff unhelpful. The selection of food was limited although the bar has been updated in recent time. Toilets good tables needed clearing bar untidy.

Took my girlfriend here last night for a steak and it was top notch. Very clean restaurant with a warm and friendly atmosphere. The staff couldn't do enough for us both, will definitely be going back. Went to the bar after our meal, sat back and relaxed, was a great night out

I had a beautiful seafood dish akin to my South of France experience. Lovely and fresh with a decent amount served. My partner chose the steak and it was perfectly medium rare (like medium rare used to be served). Really enjoyed it. Am not sure about the atmosphere with the revamped interior (personally I find it a little too bright).... More

Called here on spec last week! For what we ordered very expensive - pub grub trying to be a restaurant & charging accordingly! Coffee arrived, plonked down & no offer of sugar, luckily the recipient had a sachet in her bag..... Won't be returning in a hurry - a bit like the service....
