Dropped in for drinks after walk, medium wine and a glass of sparkling water £9.10 Not a place for occasional drink. Will miss out next time, seen other reviews similar, but they must have enough business to not heed

A bit quiet when we were in there on a Monday evening, but very pleasant. Bar price's were a bit steep but no more than any other's hotels. Candles on the tables is a nice touch.

Delicious and well presented. I had the lamb shank with garlic mash and other half had the chicken. Both were very tender. Well cooked and reasonably priced. The staff are very good too.
