“Good service- carvery vegetables overcooked/cool”
Reviewed July 19, 2014

Always go back when in Guernsey and staff friendly and welcoming. The carvery did disappoint this time as vegetables appeared re heated?- overcooked- but the atmosphere, grounds and ambience still make this a favourite despite never having stayed here.

“Great carvery and service”
Reviewed June 21, 2014

Carvery was perfect and a welcome interlude from rich holiday food of fish and chips - and more chips! Good service, and lovely grounds.

“Good intentions”
Reviewed June 3, 2014 via mobile

We visited for Sunday Lunch recently. We were greeted quite warmly and shown to a table. We had different starters; I had scallops and my wife had a Parma Ham salad. Sadly my scallops had been slightly burnt on the underside although they were otherwise quite tasty although rather small.

We elected to try the Carvery. The Pork, Turkey and Beef were all quite well cooked and not dried out. The vegetables and Yorkshire puddings were rather disappointing with most of the vegetables a bit over cooked for our liking but probably fine for others.
For dessert I had a brandy snap basket with ice cream and some sliced strawberries while my wife had pannacotta.
We also had coffee and some non-alcoholic drinks. The price was relatively low but the service was a little slow at times and lacked the attentiveness that we might have expected.
It was "not too bad" but rather less good than we had told it would be. There were some parties in but it was not unduly crowded. The ambiance is also a little lacking.
