Went to a big family birthday event in the function room (30 people). Everything was run very smoothly and the food was excellent, frankly far better than you might expect for a large-party function. Very impressed.

Having stayed at the hotel we opted for the breakfast at £8.50 which was plentiful and tasty. Plenty toast was served and good choice of cereal.

Visited this hotel on a Saturday night where they offer a choice of three course meal plus bottle of wine for two for £30. The menu is modest but given the excellent value - it would be churlish to complain. We were given table service...More
