We had been warned not to be put off by outward appearance of the hotel which is just as well as this could easily happen. Our greeting was welcoming and relaxing. The restaurant has character, the decor sets an unusual scene and table laid with white linen cloths and serviettes. Service was considerate and attentive. Food was well presented and tasty and certainly exceeded my expectations. Sunday lunch was great, good selection of fresh vegetables that were not over cooked and the meat was tender. The deserts were lovely with the exception of 2 out of the 3 trio of deserts. The trifle and creme caramel were bland. To their credit, the waitress picked up on the fact that not all the desert had been eaten and asked the reason why and responded well to our observation. The menu was mid price range. Would definitely go there again.
