We just met up with others for lunch here, so some ate the light bites while others had full meals. There was nothing that wasn't good and my sister in law thought that the lamb was amazing, so its well worth a visit. I had an exceptional mushroom soup followed by a Welsh Rarebit which tasted great but was a... More

The best steak i have ever had. I usually have it medium rare but this could have been eaten blue the quality was that good. Ox cheek, first time i have ever tried it, love it. Lamb was really very good. You have to visit if your meat lover. Service was very attentive without being interupting.

Superb roast lunch enjoyed by all in a party of 6 diners. Everyone could not fault the quality and service received by all staff. Highly recommended.

I had a most enjoyable meal, served by attentive and pleasant staff. My only disappointment was that my main course was so hot (temperature) I couldn't taste it. To my non professional eye it could have been microwaved, however when I mentioned it the plate was immediately replaced, so full marks there. I particularly enjoyed the spearmint panna-cotta with strawberry... More

We went for Sunday lunch and it was clear that the dining room was staffed by inexperienced staff but not enough to undertake a smooth service. When shown to our table the first thing we noticed was everything was sticking to the surfaces, where it had not been cleaned properly ! The food,while very tasty and fairly well presented was...

The whole meal was excellent and the service and staff were extremely polite and helpful etc. The waitress even asked the chef, at my request how the pulled lamb was cooked as it was so tasty. My partner was equally as pleased with his steak meal. Couldn't fault it. It was a shame they didn't take as much care about... More

I felt rather conned by the photo used on Trip Advisor for the restaurant at the hotel. When we stayed for two nights in june, breakfast and dinner were served in a rather dark wooden clad room – not white with doors that open to the garden. The tables were dark and very sticky at breakfast – I presume it... More
