I called the restaurant on the Tuesday to book a table for two for the Friday evening and I was told there was an availability at 8pm. So we turned up on Friday and noticed some disco lights in the window, thinking it was a separate room from the restaurant we proceeded into the reception. When we walked in, we... More

Liked atmosphere (didn't feel uncomfortable as lone female), service excellent, food good. I had fishcakes - delicious but could have done with a bit more salad and dressing.

Booked a table for the 241 Three course Sunday lunch menu for my partner and I. The room was not very atmospheric it was like a school dinner hall big and empty, I think this was the over fill room rather than the main dining room. Food though, was very tasty. Would recommend and certainly go back.

we ate here on a Friday evening and opted for the good value steak menu. The food was of good quality for the price. However, there are two main reasons for not grading this establishment higher. Firstly the staff and general service. It appears that the staff are not well trained. For example, the waitress had no clues to the... More

Steak nights provide steak for 2 and a bottle of wine for £35 if I remember correctly. Obviously you add a few extras here and there so the bill will be more than this, but it's still good value. Nicely cooked meal and good service. Prefer the bar to the rather formal restaurant.

Four friends met here yesterday. Our table was reserved but it was in the bar which was rather dark. We chose to eat outside in the sun.and all our drinks were served out to us. We all chose different meals from the starters through to the sweets. Unfortunately we had to go inside for the coffee because it started to... More

But nothing necessarily good. Clear case of poor management and comedy of mishaps and errors. The manager clearly did not have a clue - bought out incomplete meals, missed orders and then disappeared with our credit cards! When we pointed out the error of his ways, he thanked us for our feedback but there was no apology! very strange and... More

Part of the Park House Hotel complex, it provided a varied menu with capable staff. It appeared to be mainly frequented by residents.
