Enjoyable food had with friends and family yesterday. I had a vegetarian "Scotch Pie" from the menu as a starter which was full of flavour and depth and delicious, a main from the special board of Brie Risotto with candied walnuts and grapes was outstanding. Super flavours and textures. Perfect risotto. A pudding, shared, of ginger rhubard with cream and... More

We arrived at 6pm for our reservation. The place was empty but we had to wait 15 minutes to get seated. Our server was an over enthusiastic young man. I ordered the fish which was oaky but for the price it should have been excellent. My poor wife got served the most tasteless piece of lamb we have ever had.... More

We went here for my Dads Birthday and thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The only thing that brought the evening down a bit was that my steak was well done as opposed to the medium I had ordered. Regardless, it was a very tasty meal.

They advertise a lunch menu, we booked for lunch, but we were only given the grill menu when we turned up. We asked about the lunch menu that was promised when the booking was made. Waitress shrugged her shoulders and walked off. Food from the limited menu was acceptable, if a bit odd. Chicken liver parfait with sweet ginger bread... More

Bit of a strange review: Here are some facts: 1) We offer a Sunday Lunch menu every Sunday and it is widely advertised within the building and offered to guests. 2) We do not offer a Grill menu, we also offer a Daytime menu and Evening menu. 3) Our daytime menu has 16 options for main courses 4) We have...

Food, service and ambience is always to high standard, and for our friends who love trains they were absolutely thrilled when ever one went passed. Not intrusive in any way, just a prompt for us to start to plan a new trip, adding a bonus to lovely occasion.

The starters and desserts were absolutely gorgeous. We all raved about the celeriac, pear and ginger soup - so smooth and creamy. Chocolate dessert with coffee ice cream worked well, though rich, and it was a pleasant change to see such unusual flavours of ice cream offered, such as cinnamon. Although quite imaginative overall there was a rather poor choice... More

We stayed as part of a voucher deal and were very much treated as though we were second rate guests. They highlighted that we were 'Voucher Guests' four times within the first hour of arrival. Despite this the food was very good. After the meal I ordered a double cognac which looked rather small so when ordering a second one... More
