We were a group of ten that dined here for lunch recently. We had booked well in advance. Unfortunately our food orders took an hour to arrive and drinks that we had asked for either never turned up or we had to ask the waitress a couple of times as to where they were!

Service is excellent but food came a bit slowly from their Power Lunch menu I thought. I had the grilled salmon which was a bit cold but otherwise good. Chairs are surprisingly uncomfortable too.

We were tired and just wanted to grab a quick dinner before turning in, so we decided to eat at The Cafe in the hotel lobby. We were really surprised to find that the food was excellent, as was the service. We ordered Lamb two ways, which came out looking beautiful and tasted terrific!!!!
