Went in for lunch with a friend. Staff very attentive but not intrusive. Food was cooked and presented at a high standard and good value for money.

Had been away for the weekend and was a bit lazy on my return so we decided to go out for Tea. However, it was Father's Day and the first Restaurant we went to was very busy and off course we hadn't booked. Was actually glad as we decided to try our luck at the Dining Room. Fortunately, we did... More

We were so looking forward to our meal,but were very disapointed to say the least. My wife had the pate starter which ended up being the best part of the meal. I had the fish for my main course with side salad which was wilted and warm the fish and chips was just normal battered fish and chunky chips and... More

Visited the Dining Rooms a couple of times over the past few weeks . I can't fault the food or service. I was especially impressed with the smoked haddock,very tasty and well cooked. I can also recommend the vegetable and venison sausage soup. Apparently the soup is the chef's granny's recipe. I wish she was my granny!

Main meals were Battered Haddock with Chips served on the plate with brown paper underneath the fish, a... More

My daughter treated me to lunch here for Father's Day. Was a wee bit apprehensive as I had been before and it wasn't that good however I think it looks like it has been taken over by new owners. Lovely friendly welcome from Colin who took our drinks order and explained the specials. Really nice menu and a few different... More

Quality of the food was excellent with absolutely no complaints from anyone in our party and we... More

Food was ok and waitress was friendly. But the music, oh the music. Was musical-ish. Not good. When you're by yourself, these things matter
