“Very acceptable”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

Ate here with friends who were staying at the hotel. It is a very popular restaurant. We sampled lasagne, pie of the day, lemon sole and lamb. All of which were good, no complaints, in fact better than ewe had expected. The vegetables were good too, which is always a bonus to me. Does what it says on the tin as a hotel restaurant.

“well recovered”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

I ate here with a party of four and have always enjoyed great food in the past however on this occasion the main course fell below its usual high standards and had to complain about the rather tough lamb shanks x 3.The staff made no unnecessary fuss and immediately offered us another dish as well as taking it off the price of the bill.The staff also threw in the sweet as a good will gesture.I thought that is was an excellent recovery and will return next year,Thank you

“Good food at this very busy restaurant”
Reviewed July 20, 2012

We arrived at Pyne's at about 7:00pm on a very busy Thursday evening. It was "Pie Night" - the evening of the week when (in addition to the a la carte menu), there is a popular special fixed price menu with a choice of meat or fish pie and a selected dessert for £11.95. As we hadn't booked we thought we wouldn't get a table. However, we were offered a low down table in the bar with casual chairs, with an apology from the waiter. Thankfully, the chairs were exactly at the right height for the table and we felt comfortable. We were given a complimentary bottle of water and we ordered drinks, one meat and one fish pie. The home-made pies were excellent and came with a freshly cooked mix of vegetables. The restaurant was very busy and all the staff seemed rushed off their feet. Our table was cleared and after a further 20 minutes we had to remind the waiter that we hadn't had the included dessert. We put this down to the staff being too rushed. The dessrt was a smallish slice of chocolate fudge cake and blueberry ice-cream. The whole meal was very well presented and very tasty. Recommended!

“Continued excellence”
Reviewed June 25, 2012

In 12 years we have never had a meal at this restaurant that has been anything less than excellent. The new contemporary decor for 2012 is a great success, plus the quality and friendliness of waitress and bar service never slips. This establishment is a classic example of how to maintain and grow year on year all levels of excellence in food quality and customer service
