“Stick to the set menu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

This is the restaurant part of the Falstaff Hotel, and certainly the best part of that establishment. Our group of mostly retirees spends weekends here once or twice a year.
The food has been improving but we generally stick to the set menu. The chef is very cooperative and provides little extras.
The quality of breakfast is excellent, and now has plate warmers, but desperately needs a better toaster.
The wine list is reasonable, but the bar selection very limited.
Staff is attentive and does their best.
Meals are good value.

“Continuous poor service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

I have just finished my second business/group meeting at this hotel. In 2010 we found the food service appalling. There is a pre-booking service for all the meals, but when we went for it, they'd just started cooking it. 90 mins late and wrecked the conference.
Surprise surprise exactly the same happened at this one.
Never ever go there. Their restaurant management is appalling.
We did get a partial refund, but the whole experience was spoiled. Again. They obviously care nothing about complaints, and regard a partial refund as simply a "go away" routine, with no intention of improving anything.
Awful. A disgrace to the Best Western reputation.
The whole group shared this opinion.

Room Tip: To get a good room, go somewhere else.
