Good food but v slow service

I have often given this 5 stars in the past but the service was slow and they kept forgetting about us so I suspect a management problem. Come on guys - an improvement here will get you back to 5 stars. Also change your colouring - it's a bit boring and your pencils/crayons need changing.

Service was good and the welcome friendly at this recently refurbished restaurant. We probably would have given it four stars if the food had been more consistent good value. One of us had crispy battered prawns followed by beef bourgignon, both of which were delicious; the beef especially was a very generous portion, richly flavoured with superbly creamy mash. The...

We visited as a group of 5, plus our 18 month year old son, for Sunday lunch. The food is good - especially the roast beef which was really well cooked - but the service is average at best. We had to wait forever to have our order taken, and then an absolute age between each course. Some of our... More

Limited choice of seafood on menu bearing in mind that they advertise the use of fish shed produce opposite. Main course was very salty (I like salt) and came without allocated sauce. The watery veg meant my fish fillet sat in a pool. Very average for a special meal/trip based on the website claims. Not encouraged to eat here again.

Nice hotel, i have eaten here 3 times now and unfortunately the service, and lack of management is shocking. Waited 50 minutes for our mains courses. The staff were overwhelmed and very disorganised. Great location, £15.50 for a roast dinner does not live up the expectation.

Visited the restaurant on a two for one offer with friends, not expecting too much, but was really pleased to find that the food was really good. The hotel is very stylish with really good staff and a nice bar area adjoining the restaurant. The food was a real treat with the fish I had cooked properly(so rare these days).... More

This is a hotel restaurant with a difference - its light and modern, good ambiance, good food and helpful staff. How many of the diners were staying at the hotel I don't know but we did need to book and given the good reviews on this site I'm guessing that many of the diners were not residents. The restaurant has... More

Enjoyed our meals, but menu was limited and repetitive so not great for extended stays. Attentive service.
