We met up with family members here as it was half way between Harrogate and Blackburn.
We had booked a table and arrived 20mins early. Even though the restaurant was full we were immediately shown to our table.
The menu had us all hungry before we started so we ordered the drinks and as soon as they arrived we ordered the food.
The food was all very nice but, I have to say, it was not quite as good as we had expected.
On any other day we would, I'm sure, have been very happy with our meals. Trouble was, we had read so many fantastic reviews we expected really great things.
I must stress that there was nothing particularly wrong with the food, it just didn't live up to our expectations.
Service was fine and the meal was for a fair price.
I would love to return in the Summer and spend a few days in one of their rooms. This would allow us to enjoy the bar a little more without having to drive home.
Ah well. Next time.
