The Pizza was beyond delicious, it wasn't too expensive considering the West Coast, and a touch of poshness which I absolutely loved! The courtesy taxi is priceless (Hummer Limo what else do you want in life for free???), the food was good, friendly staff, and the bar on top has a lovely setting with the occasional gigs. A must visit... More

We had the rack of lamb. It was cooked to perfection. My main complaint has to do with the dining room. The restaurant is not large to begin with but I think some adaptations might make dining more comfortable. We were there on a chilly night. Every time someone came in or out of two possible French doors a gust... More

I love the pizza there. My favorite one is the salmon. They have discounted pizza every Friday. There is a karaoke and pool upstairs which make it great for night life. Will definitely recommend my friends there.

Our meals were very good.The mussels in cream sauce was excellent and a very substantial portion. The atmosphere leaves a lot to be desired. There was a lot of noise from the upstairs dining room. Good food, but nothing fancy

Excellent food and presentation. My rack of lamb was cooked to perfection and served with a nice medley of vegetables. Eat outside on the patio, inside in the lovely dining room with leather high back chairs or upstairs in the pub, complete with pool table and dart board.

We visited this hotel on the recommendation of the desk clerk at our hotel. Very happy we ate here. The food was wonderful and the atmosphere was nice. Would definitely return if we are ever in this area again.
