The food is excellent and reasonably priced, the staff are always very obliging, it has a good menu with seasonal variants, there's never been a problem just turning up without booking. Nothing is too much trouble at all! The setting is lovely and prefect for business meetings. Will continue to recommend without hesitation.

Went for the Sunday dinner menu yesterday, three courses for around £23 per person. The food was exceptional, it's always good but yesterday it surpassed expectation! Service was excellent as usual and as always a lovely clean, calm and welcoming environment. Can't fault it!

Best meal we have had in a long time and excellent customer service. Will definitely be returning. We enjoyed a 3 course meal and drinks. I had the pulled pork spring rolls which were actually the best spring rolls I have ever tasted. They came with a gorgeous orange sauce. My husband had the black pudding starter which he said...

Stayed in the hotel as a conference guest and enjoyed consistently excellent breakfast, lunch and dinner here. Possibly the finest fillet steak I've eaten anywhere in the world. Highly attentive, polite and friendly staff too. Highly recommended.

We visited just before Christmas and the place was very busy. Service however was not compromised, nor was the quality and presentation. For just under £25 we all enjoyed a superb three course meal with coffee and mince pies served afterwards in the lounge area. The food was exceptional and of the highest quality, and three hours passed in no... More

A very nice venue to meet clients and associates for coffee and lunch. I've taken several of my clients here. Food very good, coffee equally as nice, and service good too. Happy to recommend.

Visited on a quiet Tuesday evening with friends. Staff friendly and helpful. Food quality didn't live up to recommendations I'd been given to be honest. Friends eating the lamb said it was superb and the fish was good too. However Burgers were disappointing and the ravioli was a little over cooked. Overall food was okay but unlikely to visit again.... More

Eaten here a few times and always a great meal with friendly and relaxed service. A large family meal and we had our own area set up ready for our family & friends. A great welcome with drinks and canape served before our meal. Food was excellent and all dishes served together and hot and perfectly seasoned - Really impressed... More
