“Not bad at all”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2013

We live just round the corner from the San Clu/Comfort Inn and often pop in for something to eat. If you sit in the bar, you can order anything from the menu. However, if you sit in the restaurant you can't order food from the bar menu which is on the last page of the menu. Once you get this clear, it's fine. The portions are excellent and the "2 meals for £10" between 3-6pm are good value for money. They're a bit smaller than the main menu equivalents, but for £10 it's more than enough. Their roast dinners are very good, the lasagne is home made and yummy and the garlic bread with cheese is delicious. The liver and bacon, steak and cob and lamb shank are also excellent - tender meat in a delicious sauce/gravy. What does let them down is the vegetables - don't go there expecting cordon bleu or you'll be disappointed. There don't seem to be enough staff to cope when it's busy, particularly on Sunday lunchtimes, so we always go in at around 5pm when it's calmed right down - then the service is good and the food is served quickly and it's always piping hot. It's a safe bet to visit when we don't know where else to go!

“Disappointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2013

Having eaten here before for lunch and also having used this hotel lobby/bar/restaurant as a meeting place with friends, we decided to eat here prior to going to the cinema across the road.

When we arrived around 6.00 the restaurant was fairly quiet and plenty of seats so we chose a seaview which was lovely.

You have to order at the bar, we thought this was probably just at lunchtimes, but no in the evenings too.

Our meals arrived, we realised then you have to help yourself to cutlery and condiments off the waiter's trolley. I had ordered Fillet Steak and my Husband ordered Chicken Korma. My fillet steak was very fatty, so I didn't make a fuss I thought my husband had probably ordered the rump by mistake it certainly didn't look or taste like Fillet, but even for rump it was very fatty and by the time I cut that off, there was very little steak left, the chips were tasty, dry and crispy but the fresh seasonal vegetables were boiled to death and were limp and didn't taste very nice so they too were left. My husband's Korma was a bit too dark, and didn't look very nice, he said that it tasted like a Tesco or Iceland cheap meal for one, and the Naan bread was like cardboard and again tasted like it had come from the cheap section of a supermarket.

We didn't bother to stay for dessert as nothing on the menu looked particularly enticing.

I would use it again for a snack at lunchtimes but I wouldn't bother for dinner.

“Staff let this place down”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013 via mobile

Stayed at this hotel, the restaurant is part of it.
The food we had was ok, had to wait quite a while to be served,
We decided to sit outside as it was a nice day,
The waitress brought our meals, plonked them on the table and walked away,
No cutlery in condiments, nothing.
We had to go inside and ask for everything. Waited a couple if minutes, and just helped ourselves out of the cupboard.
Clearly not enough staff, or staff that actually care!
Poor service, ok food at a reasonable price,
You get what you pay for.....

“Good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2013

For a hotel restaurant the food was very reasonably priced and there was a good choice. I had a mixed grill one night and the Wexford steak another; both cooked well and served efficiently. Good real ale on offer as well which was a bonus.
