My husband and I made dinner here our treat for this trip and it was quite disappointing. The place is expensive, the portions small, and the food is quite nice, but not worth the price. The biggest issue for me is that the dishes include ingredients that are not listed and that many people don't eat, or are common allergens.... More

I was totally blown away by the food here. I'm quite a foodie and I know a good restaurant if you're still thinking about it the next day. ( In a good way!) our waiter, Francis, was adorable too.

Went for drinks and a meal on Friday. The only thing I can say is it is over priced and over rated. The wine was nice but again far too expensive. I know it is is a hotel but to be honest the food is just average. Nothing to write home about.

First time for a Sunday lunch here, I had the nutroast ( although I'm not a vegetarian), my husband had the roast beef. The meal was presented really nicely and the vegetables were cauliflower cheese, carrots which were sweetened and also included red cabbage which a particular favourite of ours. Will definitely go back

A mixed bag really, the food was of a very good standard, I had the pate followed by salmon and christmas pud. The room layout having round tables was not ideal for a large group as it fragmented us into groups which i felt did not really work well. Then there was the drinks... limited beer on tap and twice... More

I've been here loads before and the food has always been great. We were a table of 11. This was a xmas lunch with invited choir- 3 courses, at to be fair, a relatively good price and I'm guessing aimed at an older age group.But even at that price the food should be edible , hot and have some taste....

In my 300+ reviews I don't think there will be too many where I have had Sunday lunch, I usually go to my mum's and always enjoy an excellent roast there, and my first choice will always be lamb. Failing eating at my mum's my wife is also an excellent cook, so I was thrilled that we found this place... More

This was our second visit the first was two or three years ago when we amazed at the quality and value. Both times we had the tasting menu which includes an accompanying wine flight. We began with a carrot and flat bread dip which was gratis. The starters were a butternut agnolotti with a grating of truffle. This was a... More

Friends took my wife and I for a lunch here and I really didn't know what to expect, but what a surprise we were in for. This is almost fine dining, and it was delicious. they do a two-course lunch for £14 and three course for £17 - very good prices for what you get. I had the beetroot and... More
