Really disappointed. For a Wednesday lunchtime the food took an hour from when it was ordered to arrive at our table. We only ordered a main course and a drink. The order was for sirloin steak and skinny chips, fish and 'fat' chips and burger and skinny chips. The fat chips and the skinny chips with the steak were over... More

Staff were friendly and helpful but unable to cope with volume of customers over 2 hours to get soup and salad then 20 mins trying to get a bill. Good mediocre am sure there must be better places around

Visited here a while ago when we stayed at the premier inn next door. The food was good and the service was adequate. More convenient if your staying at the hotel.

We were squashed in a corner almost touching the chairs of the people behind us. The drinks order was a long time coming and then some drinks... More
