This was our second family get together although this time was a large party. The food on both occasions was lovely ( we had steak and the chips are amazing) so not sure of negative reviews. The only negative I have is that considering we pre ordered there were several cock ups and think we could have been checked on... More

We were very pleasantly surprised by the quality of our room(102) which had a 4 poster bed, Jacuzzi bath and large wall mounted flat screen tv. The bed was very comfortable, the décor... More

Me and my husband visited the restaurant and I ordered the prawn cocktail, when it came I didn't get prawns, they were shrimps and only 4 of them along with a full lettuce which was £5-6, absolutely disgusting and we won't be going there again. Was previously impressed, very disappointed this time.

Having ordered our meals, we were shown to our table. The restaurant was not busy, with less than half of the tables in use. We waited a good... More

Family meal on a sunday afternoon, good service, good value ( portions were not the biggest but well presented. We were allocated a private room as a group of 10, we had not previously book. All meals were pretty good, the only complaint would be the lamb that I found a little chewy and fatty. Everyone else was happy form... More
