We are local and ate in the restaurant twice in December 2014. We used to love eating here but it has gone down hill hugely. The staff are great and mostly they do try hard but there just aren't enough of them. The food is mostly warmed up and disappointing both in portion size and quality. The worst experience was...

On two separate occasions we have been invited to the in on the lake for lunch and dinner, on both occations we waited for an age for our meal, and when it arrived it wasn't what we had ordered. On both occasions the staff were a bit thin on the ground, and all very young although the serving staff were... More

I visited the inn on the lake between Christmas and new year and to start with it all seemed fine, until the waitress arrived, she didn't seem happy to be there! Still people have bad days! Having ordered our drinks (without seeing a menu!) we continued our meal, the food was ok, nothing exceptional! After the meal the bill arrived,... More

Hideously understaffed. Dirty bar. Dirty tables. Dirty toilets. The place even smells dirty. Lovely barmaid (the betatooed one) trying her hardest. Perpetually invisible manager ("in the office dealing with complaints") needs to come out and wipe a few tables, deal with herds of badly behaved children and serve queue at the bar. The food has also gone downhill. Nice menu... More

Having read other reviews, I wonder if they visited the same place as me! I was driven here by a friend who knew the area, as I was visiting for the day. We were given a specific New Years day menu. I had Apple juice, which was proper Apple juice, (not just the out of a carton stuff). I had... More

Having had a lovely family lunch here a few weeks ago we returned to celebrate my husband's birthday early on Sunday evening. We returned one main course which was beer battered cod. The fish was wet and under cooked and the 5 or 6 chips looked as if they had been 'recycled'. Being Sunday I had gone for roast beef,... More

A few little niggles detracted from a good lunch. We had a drink in relaxing armchairs before going through for lunch and the staff were very relaxed about what time we sat down which was great. We had the sea food pot starters which were nice followed by the three roast dinner. Our friends had turkey and had a nice... More
