I would definitely recommend people to come to this restaurant. Good was delishious. Unfortunately there was a bone in my crispy duck salad and also having to pay for bread as part of the meal was disappointing. Other than that 5 stars

I had a meeting here, and there was plenty of places to sit in private. My wife joined me for lunch afterwards, and the light menu was great. I had a Anitpasti platter. Jack was a great server also. I've been passing this hotel for years, and wished I had popped in sooner. V Nice.

The food was amazing, delicious and cooked to perfection. The menu is varied and the waiters/waitresses are confidently capable to assist with recommendations. A variety of tastes are catered for, but would definitely say it was more high end than carvery food.
