Comfortable and convenient to the bus station, staff are very pleasant and efficient. Menu average, but well presented and cooked

Dined in Elwoods part of a 2 nights B&B and 1 evening meal in the hotel. There were a few diners there when we arrived, and while the restaurant looks rather appealing from the lobby, it just wasn’t a comfortable place to sit, and certainly didn’t have a ‘restaurant’ feel about it. It is arranged in booths with some free-standing tables. Unfortunately privacy wasn’t considered when this restaurant was designed and screening between the booths isn’t sufficient because we could hear what was said by diners in the next booth. To make matters worse a group of women arrived and the cackling and screeching of them made it an absolutely deafening place to be. Had the screening between the booths been higher, we wouldn’t have had this problem and the noise would have been dulled somewhat. No harm in having a bit of fun and a few laughs, but screeching at high decibel level is not enjoyable for anyone. Because we were on a ‘deal’ our menu options were very limited, but we both managed to find something to our taste. Service was good, and our meals were well cooked and presented. However there was definitely something missing in this restaurant, and it wouldn’t be a place we would choose for intimate dining.

we dined here on a saturday night in january. the atmosphere in the bar was great it was very comfortable and not too loud to enjoy a meal. it was busy enough and we did wait abut forty five minutes for our meal after we had ordered. granted it was a busy saturday night and we had been served our drinks so waiting wasnt an issue once the food was good. i ordered a medium rare steak it was to be served with mustard mash potato and bernaise sauce. the steak itself was cooked perfectly the mash was unfortunately just plain and the bernaise sauce was just not good. im not sure if it was bought in or home made but it wasnt very appetising atall. for the dessert i had my eye on the warm chocolate fondant but after finding out it wasnt homemade i opted for the homemade apple pie which was tasty. overall it was an enjoyable meal but it could be a little better.

Had an overnight at the Forster Court Hotel and dined in the restaurant for dinner and breakfast.
We had a special deal which included 2 courses which suited us as we had eaten in the afternoon. Husband had starter and main - noodle dish and fish dish - he really enjoyed it.
I had one of the best rib eye steak dishes I have ever had, tender and perfectly cooked and in fact asked the restaurant manager how it was done.
The dessert was profiteroles which we both shared and enjoyed.
We also had a lovely bottle of wine which was well-priced.
The restaurant manager was superb, friendly and efficient, and nothing was too much trouble for him.
Waitress served us at dinner and again at breakfast and was also first-class and very friendly.
If you're looking for good food at a good price - this is it!
