I had an early Christmas celebration meal with some very good friends. The food was delicious, the service from all the staff, both bar and table was excellent and the venue is lovely. It has been quite a while since I came away from a restaurant having really enjoyed the quiz lite of the food.

Have stayed several times with work and tried various rooms from cosy up to suite, in both the original pub and in the modern annexe.

Have never eaten in restaurant (or had the room service) but its excellent reputation...
