This is part of the Forster Hotel and so we booked for our first night which was so convenient. It was a lovely relaxed, quiet atmosphere and the food was good however my friend's custard on her dessert was cold so she didn't finish it. Service was attentive and it was good value.

We stopped in here for lunch and got the seafood chowder. It was served with brown bread and butter and was chock full of salmon and smoked salmon and potatoes. The broth was creamy and flavorful with just the right consistency. We split an order of chips and this became a very satisfying lunch. They have a nice selection of... More

Food was okay. Good starters and very good mains. The desserts were not great, but the service was very good so all in all we go for a 4.

Dropped in here for lunch with my wife and toddler in January. Few minutes walk from shop Street but bright and open. Relaxed, had nice dinner and chatted with some other customers. Food was good and service from kitchen was quick. Two barmen (brendan and paul I think) were polite and entertained our 1yr old who was busy exploring.

Elwoods Bar & Grill is part of the Foster Court Hotel. It is fabulous! The food was great, very hot! Brendan the Bar Man was just amazing! He was there when we got up and was there when we went to bed in the early hours of the following morning! Thanks Brendan for a great weekend. Maddy X

I had a very tasty chicken curry, which was a gourmet meal. Great ingredients and very up scale. The dessert was presented beautifully. The chef did a great job.

A nice small bar/restaurant with a modern clean fresh look. It was a quiet Tuesday night and I cannot compliment the service enough. I ordered a goats cheese salad as a starter and was pleasantly surprised when it came to the table. It tasted great and I thought the main would be just as great. I had the golden plaice,... More
