“Good food and accommodating staff”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2014 via mobile

We had a meal in the lounge last night, food was reasonably priced and cooked to perfection and the kids portions were massive. Waiter even appeared with a box of toys to amuse the kids which was well appreciated. My only disappointment and reason for only 3 stars was that for some reason we were given a limited menu, very gutting after looking at the awesome menu outside, I thought perhaps it was because we were eating in the lounge, but after we ordered I noticed that new arrivals had the complete menu...

Thank you for your review. We are glad that you enjoyed your meals and that the children enjoyed playing with the toys from our toy box. The full menu is served from 6pm so I think that you would have eaten with us earlier than this and would have been given the bar menu. I think this would have been the reason that the guests who came in later than you got the full menu. I hope that this explains the situation with the menu options.

“Good Crab Cakes”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2014

Enjoyed the starter of Crab Cakes very much my main course was spoiled a little by under cooked potatoes. I did comment on the potatoes when asked "how was your meal" by the waiter but there was no apology unfortunately. My husband enjoyed his main course of steak and ale pie, noting the good quality of the pastry. Service in the early evening was quick and efficient.

“Wonderful scallops!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2014

Had a great meal at the bar. Scallops starter was excellent - served with herby risotto. Both the salmon and hake were excellent as was the veggie and cheese tart. Great, friendly and efficient service.
