I have eaten here on numerous occasions and have never been disappointed . Service is excellent, attentive but not intrusive. The food is beautifully presented and full of wonderful flavours. I look forward to my next visit.

“Rather Expensive for the Quality Offered”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2012

It may be that the chef had a night off, however, this was pretty disappointing. The food served was from the old 'minimalist school' and was frankly neither particularly well cooked nor appetising. The service was mediocre at best, although the server did provide a supplementary dish, once we had expressed our concern about the quantity of food provided. Overall, a disappointing experience which has led us to consider changing hotels in the future for our business meetings

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2012

The food was very good. It was a pity though that there was no Drambuie and allowing staff to drink in the bar was a bit odd for a 4 star hotel.
