This restaurant has recent refurb and has an interesting, not cheap, menu. Cooking to a high standard with ingredients of good quality. Friendly service - has always felt that kitchen is too small or overstretched by banqueting as service is slow.

An interesting menu in a good hotel with a pleasant dining room was promising. But the food, when it arrived (almost too quickly - was it all microwaved?) was tasteless and insipid, especially the red mullet. What a disappointment.
