Menu choice not extensive but all of very good quality. The lighted hand pulled ale not good on the night we were there but the amber was very good though a wee bit expensive

Excellent breakfasts. Delicious dinner on the Sunday night. Slow to arrive - but the chefs need time to prepare good fresh food for 18 people. Symbiotic relationship with the hotel.
