“Very good food but pricey rooms”
Reviewed September 8, 2012

We only ate in the restaurant as we thought £95 per night expensive for a room and so stayed elsewhere.
The food was of excellent quality and extremely well presented - "art on a plate".
Leisurely service was a big plus for us - with a 7:45pm booking, we did not finish our coffee until almost midnight - a refreshing change from restaurants who rush you through four courses in 45 minutes.

“Lovely Food”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

Came in off the street for a table for 2, wanted to eat in the bar however that area was full so was offered the bar menu in the restaurant which was good service. We got shown to our table and ordered drinks which came promptly. After that service was very slow I would say understaffed but only 26 people in the restaurant and the bar was already full with most people having eaten so no excuses for the 4 members of staff, if more than one person could have taken the orders this might have sped things up. The food when it did come was lovely no arguments there, price was reasonable for what we ate.

“Excellent meal.”
Reviewed August 24, 2012

It was our wedding anniversary and we had promised ourselves a steak meal. Called in by chance and had food that met all of our expectations. Tasty steak, hand cut chips and well presented tomato, onion rings and mushrooms, all accompanied by a small jug of sauce. Service was unobtrusive but good, the surroundings were spotless and tasteful. Prices were very reasonable for such quality. Well worth a visit.

“Lovely food”
Reviewed August 8, 2012

Had a really lovely meal here when we stayed in the hotel. The food was all delicious & very well priced, the cinder toffee ice cream accompanying one of our desserts was some of the nicest I've tried
