We visited the Douglas for a bar lunch during a visit to the island. It was not a good experience. We ordered roast beef sandwiches and cheese and tomato. The bar was relatively quiet and two young lads were serving. They were very friendly but woefully under trained. Our table badly needed cleaned but no attempt was made to do... More

We booked for the last night of our holidays as a treat. On arrival we were seated in a quiet corner with a lovely view of a flower courtyard. A young waitress took our drinks orders and then brought us a tasteful bottle of water and poured our glasses out for us. We were then given a crusty wholemeal bun... More

Staff were too stiff - lighten up guys and girls! However, food was very good. Soups were great - very hot and lovely homemade bread. Venison delicious, as was haddock. Sweets - yummy!

It looks stylish, but the food was very below standard. The main dish had no flavour, the waitress couldn't let me know what it was like so said she come back and ask for my opinion on it - but didn't, I think they knew. The pudding I left.
