Stayed at the hotel ...food was unadventurous but tadty neverthless .. Huge menu ...have no idea how the kitchen could deal with that range. Went for the specials .....tasty enough ... Haddock gougons were tasty but not fried long enough so not crispy ....but that was my only quibble .... Nice staff delivering good service ....

Third visit to the restaurant and the food never fails to impress. Portions are generous but quality is never compromised. Staff are very friendly and service is well paced. The only down side is that due to its popularity it can feel quite crowded, depending on where you are seated. Booking is advised because it is so busy.

Nice meal had by all but wasn't overly impressed. It was nice for a moms night out as we had hot food that we didn't have to cook, but wasn't anything special.

Come here regularly as it's halfway meeting point for friends, portions are big but struggle to find much healthy options as cheese and cream are used in many of the choices so often opt for the salad which is very good with lots of coleslaw , fruit etc which I love.

Our family have been to this Restaurant numerous times for meals and each time we go we are never disappointed. There is a wide choice of food to suit all tastes. And substantial portion sizes too. The staff are very efficient too. My only bug bear is that sometimes you have to wait a while for your food. But honestly... More
