A great experience

Food hard to fault. Service even harder to criticise. Not cheap, but the quality and attention to detail makes it worthwhile. Plenty of local produce too.

I was a tad hesitant leaving this review in the light of all the good responses from other people.. I have never stayed at the hotel, my only experience is evening dining and each visit has been several weeks/months apart. However, this does give me a genuine insight into the quality and standard of their dining which I am happy... More

We had friends visiting from Merseyside and wanted to book a special meal. Started with a drink in the bar and then moved through to the restaurant . Lots of staff but exceptionally poor service! Our friends ordered white wine and it was put in a cooler bucket away from the table and staff failed to keep glasses topped up.... More

Yet again another beautiful meal served by excellent staff. Nothing is too much trouble, both tast and presentation takes some beating. One of my favourite restaurants.

My wife and I had dinner here. We had read the reviews and were hoping that the management were taking on board the comments particularly as they were posting replies. Clearly this is not the case.We are not strangers to "fine dining" but we can only emphasise the bad points previously raised. The dining room has no atmosphere what so... More

Dear HfromMK, We are most grateful for your constructive feedback, however it is disappointing to read that you were not fully impressed by our restaurant. Sorry if we are a bit slow in introducing change, however TripAdvisor is not the only one tool used in measuring our service delivery and yes when we have negative feedback we do carry further...

Great food,the staff were excellent and made you feel very welcome. The gap between courses was just right a really good place to eat. A large car park behind the hotel was a big addvantage.

Good food, the staff were wonderful and so helpful couldn't do enough for you. Made you feel very welcome. We also learnt some spanish as the waiting staff were spanish. The starters were not to our liking but that was just our taste.

The restaurant have a new menu Generally good food, small portions We received a very pleasant greeting The ambiance is ideal for a civilised meal. All staff were helpful but need better knowledge of the menu. First wine choice wasn't available. Duck rillette is too dense & dry it needs more sauce. Beef filet is sumptuous, the sauce is rich,...
