Good food

I experienced some lovely service from staff at this restaurant, and had a lovely meal. What lets it down is the atmosphere, which wouldn't take much to improve for an evening meal.

Went here for dinner it was terribly unorganized the manager Lyndsay was extremely rude to her staff that where doing the best job they could considering how unorganized it was. She really needs a lesson in managment and and manners!!

We booked a table for 7 pm and there were a few diners already in the restaurant but it wasn't as busy as I would have expected considering the size of the hotel. We both had two courses starting with the crab and I had the lamb for my main. Food was good and although there was not a huge... More

We were exhausted one night and decided just to head down to the hotel restaurant for dinner. My husband had the fish and I chose the soup and chicken special they had that evening.

Service was good but suffered from being a bit over the top presumably due to the lack of customers. Another couple came in half way through our meal... More

Great friendly, accomodating staff. The waitress was a darling and the Chef was Excellent. They served us even though we arrived too late and they were supposed to be closed. The food was really excellent and the complementary tiny dessert for a taste was the clincher. We'll definitely go there again and recommend it to everyone!!!

The menu looked good but could have cooked a roast in the time it took to cook the steak
