Really nice venue however, we booked a gathering which included a buffet; the service was good and the staff polite unfortunately all this was not congruent with the food which was offered. I spoke to the chief who was polite and tried to accommodate the slight change to the menu but on the day the sandwiches were basic, the crisps stale; I could not eat the pasties ( the pastry was okay filling awful) and as for the rest of it.... To be honest it was no better than pub food which I would have paid a fraction of the price.
I have visited this venue previously and enjoyed my meals there but I don't know what has happed standards appear to have slipped. Guests were offered to take home what was left but no one took up the offer.
