Eight elderly golfers visited this establishment for dinner as part of the gourmet package in the area. Dinner and local wines were inclusive and prepaid. Initially the head waiter tried to challenge the wine aspect. Whilst trip advisor revues indicate a number of good points about location when staying, there appear to be repeated reservations about food quality and price.... More

A great location, formal service, the food is ok with local inspiration but not that special. The deserts are better than the rest of the meal.

After reading earlier comments, I was pretty concern when dining here but my concerns were put to rest. We had dinner, service and food was of good quality and met my expectations. The pricing was a bit high compared to the town restaurants but we accepted the fact that this is a hotel (castle) dining outlet. As some guests mentioned,... More
