Stayed overnight. Venue is ideal and in a nice area with easy access to the City on foot. Staff and food were really good. Room in need of a refresh, although nice size. Dragon taxis recommended by staff were excellent and very reasonable. All in all a good experience. If room slightly improved, would definitely recommend visitors to stay. Anyone... More

We work nearby, so tried to get as a treat to get out of the office for a few hours. The bar staff didn;t acknowledge us initially, the chef came out of the kitchen and they were having a chat and after five minutes served us. The wait on food was more than 45 minutes, so some of my colleagues... More

We popped in here for a spot of lunch and found the special afternoon menu. Can't remember the exact prices but something like 4.90 for 1 course and up to 8.90 for three! The menu is interesting enough to like. Even the soup is slightly eclectic with Butternut and Maple, the one I chose, with poppy-seed bread. The Aranci balls... More

If you love steaks don't go there. It was the worst steak I have ever had. Asked for medium rare, received super thick, well done, dry and chewy. On the menu was written there is a rocket salad on the side there was only frozen peas and half of tomato full of fat. I love bloody steaks and this what... More

Arrived and the outside looked quite nice. Checked in at the bar (and had to pay at that point) and were shown to room. I appreciate it was relatively cheap, but I have never seen such a room - really this needs to be checked out and stopped being used until it is brought up to a habitable standard. There... More

At first we were pleased to get in (and parked - even possibly securely - considering so close to the city centre). There was a really welcoming outside bar and covered seating area around the back yard, which seemed a nice place to relax later (after an evening in town). The bar staff were friendly and the bar prices were... More

Booked in ok, reception in the bar and lady very helpful. Room was awful, flaking paint, mildew and peeling wallpaper in the en suite as well as the room. Woken up at 5.45 by the washing machine in the room above us. This cost £75 B & B which was far too much. If another hotel had vacancies I would... More
