THE UPSIDE: We came here with friends for Sunday lunch. The first thing that hits you when you enter is the decor and atmosphere. This hotel/bar/restaurant has been recently refurbished and done very tastefully, giving it a modern atmosphere, but somehow retaining an air of homeliness. The staff are excellent. All very young, but very friendly, obliging and respectful. Whoever does their training deserves a pat on the back. The Sunday roast was excellent with the vegetables cooked almost to perfection and presented well. There was no packet food here, just good old local produce.
THE DOWNSIDE: But oh dear, the portion sizes involved. For me, this robbed my report of the full 5 pips it could so easily achieve. My starter was tiny although beautifully presented and again the roast could not be faulted for quality, but I came away hungary and for the price it was a disappointment. What a shame. No doubt, individuals with smaller appetites than mine would disagree with what I have just written, but then these are personal views.
WOULD I GO THERE AGAIN? You bet!
