About the only good thing to say about this restaurant is its location. The staff did not seem interested in giving us a table and they seemed less interested in wanting to serve us. The food was average - nothing special. Not recommended.

We ate here with a Groupon Voucher and contrary to some other reviews we were delighted with the menu choice and quality of the food. We were greeted pleasantly and the service we received could not be faulted.

We went here with a Groupon voucher. We experienced the same as previous reviewers, not getting a booking and having to phone to book. The bubbly we were given was nice, but the food was very poor, we described it as Tesco value, with Tesco being nearby. The waitress in charge seemed a bit snobby and the place seemed rather...

After a lot of hassle trying to get a reservation (no reply to emails, phone ringing out) my friend and I eventually managed to make a telephone booking. When we arrived we were asked for confirmation of our reservation. Unfortunately we did not have this as it had been booked over the telephone. The host did not seem to believe... More

This review is for the afternoon tea only as I did not experience other aspects of the hotel.
