Brilliant old hotel, lovely bar and dining room too and the gardens are absolutely stunning. Bar meals very reasonably priced and the staff are very friendly too.

We had several meals at the restaurant and were very satisfied with all. Eggs with salmon is a must at breakfast. Ask for Audrey.

The restaurant is very quaint and atmospheric. The breakfast was lovely and catered for all tastes. My husband enjoyed a cooked breakfast whilst I had fruit with yoghurt followed by cereal.the tea was marvellous. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly.

I was invited to an event for the day in a group of 8 people. We ate there. Our hosts had chosen a menu for us based on some of our preferences. The hotel was delightful, as were the grounds, the staff were very professional and the service was excellent. However the food left much to be desired. It was... More

A family celebration, host a roast in a beautiful setting.The food was great but not hot as it was moved to a private dining room.The beef was amazing didn't need any other meat to accompany this as it was too much. The bill wasn't itemised and so I queried it by e-mail for a break down with an events organiser.... More

Antipasti dinner starter was plentiful and beautifully presented. My companion enjoyed the mackeral. Main course lamb chop was a beautiful meal, but somewhat tough, i.e. "long on the leg." Did not try dessert. Breakfast (included in my offer) was beautiful, as well, and very tasty.

The menu was disappointing - we had visited several years ago and we very impressed -so expected the same high standards and choice. I ordered the Barnsley 10oz chop and had difficultly finding any meat - a large bone but not much else - I have ordered this at other restaurants and have been impressed - the chips were over...

We were seated in a small room in a dark corner and left. The daffodils on the table were dead and the teacups dirty, none of the crockery matched. We had to get our own drinks from the bar and ask to be served. There were two waitresses who appeared to be delivering excellent service to the people on the... More

Really really good - the welcome we received was second to none. The dining room is really comfortable and cosy, and the food was as superb as you would expect from a restaurant of this quality.
