Functional room, neatly laid out and flexible.

On the first night the restaurant was reasonably quiet but a wedding party seemed to confuse the receptionist who thought we were in the wrong room. Nonetheless this certainly seemed a busy little venue. The seabass was generous and well presented as well as duck two ways with the breast soft and... read more

We booked through Open Table and when we got there for our 1.00pm booking they had no record of our booking. Our table for 4 was VERY close to the table behind us. The staff were very polite and helpful. 3 of us had smoked salmon salad for a starter which was enjoyable and I had vegetable kebab with a... More

Dining room okay looks wise, but does not reflect the amazing food that we were served, nor the service, chef clearly knows his food, this was two rosette standard, superbly executed, well presented and worthy of accolades.

I ate here twice while on a business stay over in different weeks and i have to say that the food is out of this world. Your taste buds will be all over the place, they will want to carry on eating such great food even after you have finished. The portions are not big but you are full once... More

Visited as a group of 9 for Mothers Day Feels a bit cold and miserable inside with bad paintwork. Took 25 mins for drinks and had to prompt to ask for food. It was a carvery, and as they go, food wasn't bad. However, it was not remotely hot, they need serious investment into proper food containers if they want... More

Stayed at the hotel that this restaurant is within and, having had a poor meal locally the night before, I thought I'd try out the restaurant. To be honest, the food was ok. Limited menu, but the food was hot and tasty. I think the waitress was new, as she asked if I wanted desert or coffee once I'd finished... More

Booked in at the restaurant of The Parkmore Hotel as non residents for my mums birthday. Food was of excellent quality and presented beautifully with portions sizes not over facing but big enough to leave you not feeling hungry. The a la carte menu served a wide variety of dishes all at excellent price for the high standard expected. The... More

Booked Parkmore again for our 2013 Christmas party with friends...
