We went as a party of 14 for a golden wedding anniversary meal and a 70th birthday meal combined. We all previously had pre-ordered our food with the hotel. Unfortunately, one person was unable to attend so we cancelled that order but it was still served. One steak and was missing and my lamb meal was also missing, the missing... More

The service was pleasing, and the staff were helpful, the environment was bubbly with a full bar area. Having been recently refurbed, it was nice to go in and see what they had done - they'd done a good job, it's much more welcoming that it was before. However the food was only OK, and it was a little cramped,... More

Despite having a very noisy grumpy 2year old with us the waitress was brilliant and the service was excellent! It's a... More

I booked this hotel not knowing what to expect. I had not previously done any homework on trip advisor as to what it was like. I was very impressed when I arrived. The hotel is on the A6 on the right hand side as you head north. It is well advertised in this direction. All the staff I dealt with... More

On arrival, there is a private car park which is free and large. When checking in the staff were very knowledgable and informative about the meal times and where to go. The room was larger than expected, clean and thankfully there was a fan (we stayed the hottest day of July so far!) Plenty of clean towels and complimentary shampoo/bath... More

Good pizza made by friendly staff, good value for money Side salad was small and had very little or no dressing and none was offered. My recommendation would be the pizza topped with walnuts and gorgonzola cheese. My wife had one topped with Parma ham freshly shaved parmesan cheese and rocket delicious. It was lovely relaxed meal eaten outside in... More

The food here, once again did not disappoint. Excellent staff provided us with great service, from the time I booked the table, till the time we left. If you've not eaten here yet, I strongly recommend you do :-)
