“Eating out”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

I’m sorry I have never put a negative review yet but feel I have to say something about the meal we had in this hotel. The first indication we had that all was not going to be what we expected when we entered the restaurant and could smell stewed cabbage. I deliberately avoided the roast dinner as I suspected that was the culprit of the cabbage smell. Three of us had the pheasant which was so tough we had to send it back. The staff seemed to be clueless one trying to serve dessert to two of us while three of us still had not had a main course.

Generally it was a unpleasant evening and a expensive one to boot, the restaurant charged us for the replacement meals!

We were very disappointed to read your review, we are sorry the pheasant was tough, we have had a problem with the quality of the meat from our supplier and we have since removed it from our menu. We hope you enjoyed your replacement meal. We are a family run hotel and are very passionate about the quality of food and service we offer, we have many happy guests who stay and eat with us and are sorry on this occasion we didn't meet our own high standards. If you would like to contact us directly we would be happy to discuss this further.
