We booked the hotel as a suprise venue for a Wedding breakfast for my brother-in-laws wedding. I cannot fault the venue or the friendliness of the staff but the actual meal was not up to scratch. Those that had the soup of the day (tomato & basil) found it pleasant but the terrine was very fatty and exceptionally cold. The smoked haddock fish cakes were dep fried and tasted so. The main meal was patchy. The chicken was ok. The pheasant was tough and over cooked and the salmon arrived after everyone else had finished!!. The dishes presented did not satisfy their description on the menu and there were elements missing all over the menu (bacon with the cabbage etc.). The dessert ice cream was a very big redeeming factor as again the desrt description and presentation were in a different book. Why oh why if something is eloquently described in apprpriate flowery language does it appear on the plate just a little bit short?? It's a little bit like advertising a Ferrari and delivering a Ford. With a little bit more effort this could become a very fine diner but currently falls very short of its target.
