“Food okayish”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

We ate here 18th june guest in hotel. Starters fine, crab cakes and lemon chicken skewers. The burger main was fine, apart from the bun being burnt. However my pasta with sage butter sauce very disappointing, bowl hot but pasta lukewarm, as for the sage butter sauce, it was non existent. Had herb salad extra.side order.....when has lettuce been a herb? Deserts ice cream and a apple crumble with custard. Well 2 small scoops of ice cream, as for the custard a hoot a small amount in a jug. Before we had finished our glasses were removed yet mine still had sparkling water in it wasnt until i went to have a drink with the desert to release it has been taken.

Staff friendly

“Excellent food and excellent service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

There was plenty to choose from with the set breakfast. My only dislike was that the bacon rashers were too thick.

“Limited choice and very little dairy free.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

I am lactose intolerant and sorbet was about the only dessert suitable. Main courses okay but very limited choice of dishes.
