We arrived on a Sunday and the bar was very busy because football was on so we didn't really want to go in there. We had two teenagers with us and we able to go and sit in the restaurant to wait until it opened. We had to go through to the bar for our drinks which was a bit of a nightmare because it was so full. The service was not brilliant in the bar but again because it was so busy maybe this was the reason. I asked for sauvignon blanc and was given pinot grigio and told this was all they had, so reluctantly accepted it. On entering the restaurant there were lots of bottles of sauvignon blanc!! They did however refund us for two thirds of the pinot grigio and I eventually got a nice bottle of wine. The food was pretty good. We had fish and chips and the kids had beef and roasties (they were lovely) and a burger which went down well. The price was very reasonable for what we had. They asked us to pay for our room the evening we were staying because as we hadn't ordered breakfast no one may be around when we checked out. We stayed in a family room. It was a good size for 2 adults and 2 children and had a small en-suite shower/toilet. The room was pretty basic and the décor could really do with being updated. There was plenty tea/coffee and biscuits. The towels were lovely and fluffy and white. All in all not a bad place for a stopover.
