Great food and old world charm but poor service

There were 8 of us who ate there on a Sunday afternoon. The food was universally appreciated as being top quality by all. However, the portions are not always that big and my friend commented on the small size of his fish main course (it was small though). The only bain was service and we seemed to... read more

I was there for a wedding reception which might be a bit unfair to judge the food by. On the other hand - the breakfast is top notch.

Wedding reception meal gorgeous, beef was melt in the mouth. Other meals equally good. Yorkshire breakfast well cooked so we're the kippers & pancakes. The evening fish course was perfectly cooked.

The facade of the hotel is absolutely beautiful and the interior although a little worn has a lot of character. We went to the hotel for afternoon tea (abut £17 each). The waiter was friendly and took our order relatively quickly although a couple who were seated after us were served first which is always a no no especially when... More

The dining room is beautiful and quite intimate, being small and therefore close to other tables. That is part of the problem as it can be noisy. Ok if there are just couples talking in hushed voices at other tables, but with a 'party' at a table next to you, it becomes rather unpleasant. My main meal of the pork... More

I went away for my anniversary, the room was too warm and quite small. The bathroom was dated and wasn't 4 Star. The food was good but again the restaurant was too warm and stuffy. The food also came out too quickly not giving you a breathe between courses and the waitress never asked us if we wanted a drink... More
