I have eaten here so many times, I have quite literally lost count. We stay at the hotel almost every year, and have done for over 10 years now. However even we're not staying there & just happen to be in or anywhere near the area, it would always be my first choice for a bite to eat.
The hotel itself is in a gorgeous location, easy to find with excellent parking facilities, including ample disabled parking close to the main door. The main restaurant is lovely - tables & seating are very comfortable, ideal for indulging in a nice long relaxing meal, without ever feeling like the staff are waiting for you to finish. The staff have always been exceptional & go out of their way to accommodate your needs, whilst remaining friendly & chatty - I love the fact that several of the staff have been there for years, it's so nice to see the same friendly faces & must surely speak volumes about how nice it is to work there!
The food is very well priced & the portions are excellent, with a great variety of meat & fish & vegetarian food. As I only eat fish I've often asked if I could have a starter as a main, and it's never too much bother for them.
The bar food is also excellent value & of a very high standard - we've had light snacks (soup, sandwiches, etc.) as well as full carvery & have never been disappointed with the food or service.
If you're looking for beautiful food, an excellent variety, all served up in lovely surroundings by very friendly staff.....I 'd highly recommend this lovely restaurant.
Looking forward to seeing you again in October!
