We were there for a one course lunch during an activity day, and lots of us had the York ham, egg and chips. Be warned..... York ham means plastic ham! Thin strips out of a packet. When this was pointed out, we were told that the menu does say York ham. All the other dishes were considerably better. Just don't... More

We had a family room as there were 3 adults in our party. It was more than we could ever have imagined as it was a suite of rooms and a seating area prior to a large shower room.
