Stayed here one night in January for business reasons. Charming welcome. Room adequate but very cold on arrival. The young receptionist offered the unasked for explanation that 'it's easier to heat up a room rather than lower the temperature.' The shower room was pitifully small ..the loo roll holder hung out over the seat itself making it rather uncomfortable for... More

Recommended by friends and having waited a couple of weeks to get a reservation, expectations were high. Food was good but not exceptional and quite highly priced for both location and food experience. I presume the inflated prices are in line with catering for weddings and parties and on reflection the fish and chip menu looked more appealing than that... More

Good evening and thank you for taking the time to write your review, we were sorry to read that you were not as impressed as you were hoping to be. We generally have great feedback on both food and service but we cannot please everyone. Our pricing is based on fresh local ingredients which are then cooked fresh to order... More

This venue was recommended by two different friends and since we were looking for somewhere for a special birthday celebration without having to travel into the city centre, it was an ideal choice. We were very pleasantly surprised, both at the initial welcome and the very attentive service throughout. The menu was wide enough to cater for a vegetarian in... More

We wanted to meet friends, have lunch, play bridge, have some tea and sandwiches a beer or two and leave about 21.00. Everything was organised perfectly. Mild amusement at the old fogies round the bridge table. Menu cleverly restricted so that things could be done to order, great beers. Generally just as we asked.

Evening meal for a party of 6, not a huge choice on the menu but all freshly prepared so understandable and acceptable very good food at a reasonable price. Staff attentive without being overbearing, great atmosphere and ambiance. Would definitely return. Thanks

My new husband & I spent our honeymoon night here in the Thomas Gerrard Suite .... The room, the service, the cleanliness, the staff were all absolutely faultless .... A dream end to a perfect day. We didn't eat at evening time but the restaurant seemed very popular. The breakfast next morning was scrumptious & certainly hit the spot. If... More

We did not stay in the rooms but we ate here. The bar is lovely and greeting friendly. The food choice we thought was somewhat limited but put that down to the fact that everything was freshly cooked. Slightly on the expensive side but the quality was good so we accept good food is expensive. We are pleased we went... More
