We ate here twice recently in the evenings. There is a fair choice on the menu and several specials. The food was a little dearer than some of the hotels that we stayed at, but the wine was a good price and quality. Overall we enjoyed our meals with the exception of the chicken supreme, which was very disappointing for... More

It feels like you are eating in the hotel foyer. The staff are poorly trained and food matches their experience. Very small portions for the money you pay. It's just not great. The food is much too average to be rated higher than 2 stars. And I'm being a little generous here I think

The choice and standard of food are excellent, much better now than they were a couple of years ago, and there's a pleasant 'buzz' about the place that wasn't there last time we went. I'd say the restaurant staff are still under... More
