Went today for lunch. Not disappointed. Staff very friendly and efficient. My wife had Salmon which she said was the best she'd ever had, I had Haddock which was massive. Very enjoyable meal, well cooked and presented. Recommended

Had a lovely unexpected dinner. Food was exceptional and definitely one of the better blue group restaurants. Staff were attentive but not over the top. Will go again and highly recommend. Not stayed in the rooms available but looks nice and a lovely setting.
