We booked for lunch 22/4 and were excited by the "Seafood Festival" during April. I selected the Smoked Salmon Bubble and Squeak as a starter - the restaurant was quiet but even though there are only two starters on that menu the Bubble and squeak was sold out (!!) - we had instead the prawn and mango Tian. It was... More

When I arrived there was no-one to check in as receptionist was serving meals in restaurant, so had to wait a while. The room had frosted glass windows so no view, there were no toileteries in the bathroom, plus the heating was broken.

I knew from other reviews when booking The White Rabbit that it was either going to be okay or awful. I emailed ahead and requested not to have room 4 or 5 (as I had read these were the worst) and was given room 10. It was okay. That's the best I can say really. The bathroom was very small... More
