The steak was good quality and well cooked, and the chips were delicious. We had the sharing pots dessert, which is three bowls of your choice (mousse, whipped mascarpone, soft fudge etc).... More

The staff in the restaurant were superb and accommodated in every way they could! The breakfast and the dinner menu had lots to choose from and the food was really nice. My food was included in the price of my stay but thought the prices on the menu were reasonable, especially for the quality of food served.
