Visited on the 26th November for lunch. The staff were very nice and welcoming. The restaurant was lovely and warn on a very cold day. The food was lovely and the service was fast. We waited no time for the food to arrive. Thought the soft drinks we had were quite expensive . Would definitely go back.

Came in for a quick bite food was fab but the staff constantly staring at us was a put off. The girl behind the bar sat and listened in to our conversations an the manager in the white shirt couldn't keep his eyes off us while we were eating. We will not be back.

Second time at this restaurant for Sunday lunch. The first time was probably the best Sunday roast we had ever had in a restaurant. A great piece of beef, stunning gravy, great Yorkshire puddings (got an extra one), crispy roast potatoes, fresh vegetables. Absolutely scrumptious. Now, contrast that with today. My wife went for the roast beef again but I... More

I had booked a room at this Hotel for the wrong night! ahh. But first class service from the gentleman that served me - who arranged an alternative room elsewhere as they were fully booked - for no additional cost. Beautiful hotel and will definitely stay here next time I'm up. Thank you - and a great place for after... More

Our first visit here and had a great experience. From we went in till we left the waiter could not have been more welcoming and helpful. The food was excellent. We had the set menu, 2 courses for £13.95. it was definitely value for money. We visit the area regularly and will now make this our eating place of choice.

We have visited this Inn many times over the years. It is always a pleasant experience. The food is varied and of a high standard and the staff are always professional and pleasant. The patio area at the front of the restaurant is lovely on a warm sunny day. There is plenty of parking available and the restaurant is easily... More
