I visited the Torrance on Friday night for a meal with 3 friends. Let me say firstly that the service was excellent and the hotel is lovely. We were seated in the conservatory. All of the food was well presented and tasted good except for my friend's salmon which was under-cooked and appeared to have been kept warm. She returned it and was served an alternative which was good and she was not charged for either. However there was a major problem. The hotel had a live singer and the noise was extreme. We were unable to have a conversation at our table and I can't imagine what it must have been like in the main restaurant. There is no wall between the very busy bar and the restaurant so don't book if you want a quiet meal or a chat with friends. Having said that I will probably try the restaurant at lunchtime as I am sure it will be completely different then. We eventually moved to the reception area for our coffee.
