After reviewing the menu I booked a meal here for our wedding anniversary... Good choice of food, not too fancy but enough to set them apart from the local competitors that seem to have lost their way. Their booking phone was answered quickly, and the lady who took the booking made a note it was our wedding anniversary.... We arrived... More

This restaurant/hotel is simply perfect. The food is exquisite and you can sit inside (that has a pure class decor) or outside that has stunning views! You can't lose! They have musicians on regularly to add to the ambience. Perfect for a date night!! Lovely for a Sunday dinner and comfy for a chill in the sun with a glass... More

It's been a number of years since our last visit and on a sunny evening we were pleased so see how much outdoor seating was available. Obviously the location is beautiful so to enjoy the views while dining was a real treat. Our main dishes were very good but we were left disappointed with the key lime pie. Our waitress... More

We stayed at the hotel and had evening meal in the Red Lion. My wife had the scallops for starter and I had the mackerel with crab bon bons and for main course we both had the best chicken pie ever. The waitress offered every table a jug of water without being asked which I though was good service. The... More

We stopped in for 1 night at the hotel and had a meal here. Best chicken liver pate I have ever eaten. Warm atmosphere and friendly efficient staff. Would be wonderful in the winter when the fires are going. Highly recommend this pub.

For years we have always dined here when in the area. It's appeal was good food and service in a relaxed atmosphere. Yes it has always been at a premium but we feel you get what you pay for! We had two visits last week and they will probably be our last. The lunch was ok but the restaurant was... More

This is a quality restaurant - if you want massive quantities it's not for you . It's not cheap either but has an excellent chef and a great wine list. Heartily recommend.

My husband and I had dinner here over the weekend. We have been several times before after having our wedding reception here 5 years ago. This time was a bit of a miss for us. The restaurant was incredibly quiet, there were only 2 other tables eating, however we do quite enjoy having a bit of privacy. The pianist was... More

I live locally but haven't been since it has been refurbished. What a find ! The bar was really well done out, atmospheric, comfortable, cleverly divided into natural areas. 'Good job' ! To whoever thought this through. We were served by Donna, who was great and so were the other staff we came into contact with. Nice, happy and chatty.... More
