Stayed at this hotel for a couple of nights and decided to eat in one evening. It was better than my expectations, which were high anyway. The highlight of my meal was the duck breast and fondant potatoe. The duck was beautifully cooked and melted in the mouth. The fondant potato was excellently cooked and very smooth. The whole experience... More

My family and I visited for lunch to celebrate their anniversary. We weren't overly hungry so decided to have a simple salad, we chose the ceaser salad and some chips - the salad was very tatsy, as where the chunky chips! Friendly staff, nice welcoming atmosphere with pretty decor. Seemed rather quiet? Perhaps because it was a Monday. The only... More

The restaurant was written up as "award" winning but steak was sinewy and chewy. Spouse ordered the duck which she described as excellent.

We had a very pleasant Sunday lunch here - the food was delicious and very well prepared. The service was also superb - friendly, professional and efficient. We enjoyed our meal so much that I think we shall be returning for dinner at some point.

Had dinner here. Bookings are essential since they were packed. The menu does change constantly depending on local ingredients available (apparently). Excellent food menu with extensive wine menu since they are supplied by Tanners wine merchant (which is incidentally across the road from here.) Obviously there is a triple mark up in price for wine since it is a restaurant.... More

We had Carrot and coriander soup to start which we both enjoyed, it was served with white and walnut bread which was delicious with butter. When our mains came we thought the portions were small, however both of us were to full for a desert so instead we enjoyed a pot of tea. The staff are all young and very... More

We didn't eat this time but came for a drink of a Friday night. Nice ales on tap and quite a fun atmosphere. But it was far, far too loud. There isn't a shred of soft furnishing in sight. Which maybe conforms to the look they're going for, but there's a reason restaurants/pubs have traditionally had the odd bit of... More

Thank you for your review. We appreciate all feedback we get from our customers whether it is on trip advisor, facebook or twitter. However our restaurant is situated mainly on the first floor with a few tables available downstairs. We do on occasions have a live acoustic musician as was the case when you visited. This does not effect the... More
