Had lunch in here whilst waiting for our hotel room to be ready. The menu was good with reasonable prices. We chose burgers & really enjoyed them. Ample room and tables, good service.

Great atmosphere and variety of food - quick and good service. What's even better is that we can visit the restaurant in our towelling robes rather than have to get dressed each time. Certainly adds to the completion relaxation and enjoyment of our visit!

It's another bar in the hotel. We went for a wedding for 2 nights. This is the bar we all met in and had some food, the curry's are not recommended as not hot in taste and the chips have potatoe skins left on.

We was on our spa day when went in here for a sandwich. The prices are reasonable and the sandwiches were a bit dry but it was a very hot day. All the staff were nice and friendly.

Attended a day meeting at the Old Thorns and got lunch in the Sports Bar. As you would expect, it has the ambiance of a sports bar, which is a little strange for a sober, working lunch. The menu offered a good number of options and was surprisingly well priced. The bar area was busy serving guests from a wedding... More
