Stopped in for lunch and found it tasty, enjoyable and reasonably priced. Service was fast, and food in the carvery was fresh and well presented. The chef was friendly and attentive to my requirements. Well worth a visit and family friendly.

We ordered wine which didn't come until we were about to finish. We were told the Wine is warm because the fridge seems to be broke and they would... More

We stayed here for one night midweek. Hotel is great for families, has a nice pool and the kids club facility is excellent. The only thing that let it down was the four campervans with travellers that arrived in the car park. They proceeded to have a bare knuckle fist fight at approx. midnight which woke us up from the...
