Lovely meal and restaurant and Templars house very atmospheric. Service was friendly and good but lacked some touches. No lemon in G & T or soft drinks. The portions were good and well prepared. Very good food but minute steak presented more like pub grub. Would go back again.

I don’t usually write reviews on sites like this. Not because I don’t believe in them. On the contrary I think that up to a point they make our lives easier. Maybe it’s because I write for a living. Usually I say my opinion straight away. So if it’s a good comment I can see people’s joy on their faces... More

This is a very historic hotel based on the monestry housing the returning Knights. The atmosphere in the giant Knights hall with the huge fireplace is historic!! Rooms are large with heavy furnitures supporting the place atmosphere. Food is great and solid!! Excellent place for a nice retriet.
