Great service, good food

We had sensational service from the minute we walked in. For a busy night, the food came quickly and was cooked to order. The Saturday night light show also added to the romantic feel to the balcony area for an evening meal. Overall, very well priced for the experience.

Had a meal and the food was really average, taking into consideration the location and the prices. The interior is still tasteful, but a bit of TLC could come in handy. The service was good though.

Went to Squires because hotel confirmed that they were prepared for blackout. I ordered the fried haloumi cheese and enjoyed it thoroughly. As a main course I ordered lamb cutlets with a salad and creamed spinach. This was exactly as expected and I can suggest people to visit Squires Loft.

Excellent food in a nice location, but it could easily be 'upgraded' to a more upmarket restaurant by adding table-cloths etc. The ostrich served with a blackberry compote is the best I have had anywhere.

My wife and I visited this restaurant on the last day of our holiday. Wife had hake and chips after the sole she wanted, which is on the menu, hasn't been in stock for over six months. I had a fillet with mushroom sauce. Both meals were okay but nothing fantastic. We will NOT be going back when we return... More

A bit too formal for my tastes with its cigar lounge feel and dark wood interior, Squire is known for its well-prepared cuts of meat, of which I can vouch. In addition, what delighted me was the Mitchells beer the restaurant serves on tap. It was a great accompaniment to my beer.

The service was excellent, the steak was tender and perfectly grilled. Drinks are a bit expensive though.
