This restaurant offers great food and even greater service. The food was all served in good time, was of great quality and arrived hot at the table.

Choosing the bar snacks, the menu was reasonable. The choice of the steak pie was best of the two. The Ceaser salad had peppers, who puts peppers in it. Having had a starter I had no cutlery. The waitress quickly noticed it and mentioned it. I also asked for black pepper. If I had not went to the bar for... More

Spicy chicken dish with pasta was lovely. Breakfast was cooked to order and was exceptional with the most fabulous black pudding. YUM!

This is my second visit to this restaurant (and to the Eight Acres) and nothing has really improved. Before I get started however, let me praise Natalie and Mark for their every effort to try and make this a pleasant dining experience. They were pleasant and professional during a really hard service, one they seem far too accustomed to. They... More

Without prompting they swiftly came back with a thank you and a request that we revisit them to show that things had been changed for the better, and... More

The selection was exceptional. So much to choose from continental to full cooked breakfasts, cinnamon toast with bacon and maple syrup, all sorts of fish. Plenty tea/coffee toast etc. Staff really helpful.

Dinner was part of our deal in the form of a 6 course taster menu. This was excellent and very filling! Also, you could have a main meal off the lounge bar menu if you didn't want the 6 course menu - these meals were also lovely. Service was efficient and friendly but unintrusive. Great dining experience.
