What a lovely place this is, I cannot fault The Tower! From the warm welcome by very pleasant staff to the comfortable and relaxed atmosphere, this place is a gem! Once again we opted for a simple lunch, I had one of the best Ploughman's ever and hubby had a BLT baguette with a portion of their excellent double-cooked chips!...

Parking is large on the terrain of the hotel....

Never came to see if we wanted drinks we had to ask them all the time when they actually appeared in the restaurant !!! Food was bland and tasteless we ordered...
