We live locally and decided to have sunday lunch here rather than go to Thornbury, which has a much better choice of eateries, but is 10 miles away. On entering the hotel, it was ridiculously dark and badly lit, which was not at all welcoming. There was hardly any lighting in the lounge bar area and lobby and the blinds were half drawn on the windows. We had lunch from the calvery which was a choice of beef, pork or turkey for about £10 for a main course. The meat portion was quite small, 3 small slices, but you could help yourself to potatoes and veg. It was ok, very bland and a bit like school dinners. We declined the desserts. Bar staff were a bit distracted. Don't think we will visit again, as it was a bit of a let down and there are better places to eat in the area.
