“Okay food, not much atmosphere”
Reviewed July 28, 2012

This is really just a hotel dining room, and it feels like it. Too bright, high ceilings, old-fashioned decor and the noise of the hotel going on around you. It's probably not too bad if you sit in the conservatory part, but to be honest the food is nothing special. The veggie option was a bit of a joke (basically a piece of goat's cheese charged at something faintly ridiculous). I wouldn't go again.

“Nice restaurant in a pretty old hotel”
Reviewed July 18, 2012

Ate here on a Sunday, when most of the others were closed. While not the best restaurant ever, the food and service were very good, and we enjoyed our meal.
