“A step back in time”
Reviewed August 29, 2010

We went to this hotel for a celebration Meal only did not stay.
Bar is warm and welcoming, with lots of interesting talking points- taxidermy, pictures etc. friendly staff, comfortable seats and wobbly tables or is that a bumpy floor, lol. Great Beer! We had booked the restaurant for 6 people there were 8 of us so the waitress hurried away and changed out table without complaint then reappeared 10 mins later.the ambiance was warm with the antique tables- beautiful tables all around and Old chairs to match, chandeliers everywhere old china , silver a grand Piano, in fact it looked great and was very comfortable- plenty of elbow room as they say.A candelabra on the table with 5 candles lit our meal.
My only negative is, this formal area whilst obviously original with a stain on the ceiling that could not be helped, needed a good dust the piano next to us had a tide mark, and cobwebs in the windows and across the ornate mirror, tho somehow this did not detract from the occasion other than this must cost a fortune to run and an age to keep clean due to the amount of paraphernalia around.
Our table i might add was spotless.
The seafood platter was i am afraid a little ordinary and no bread was served on the table which for the price i would have thought possible, We did order some though one small baguette for 8 people was miserly - also squashed which upset my mum who's birthday it was, lol but tasty all the same as it was hot. Pate was fab, soup lovely too
There were waits involved but as it was all cooked fresh were not unacceptable.
mains were generally very good, steak cooked perfectly, monkfish too, a few more veg would have been nice 4 beans and 4 carrots? was not enough for the men though what was served was again cooked perfectly., Desserts apple blackberry pie straight from the oven? Yum Bakewell tart? Yum Chocolate torte? heaven Cheese board disappointing choice of cheese..
Service Good
A good place for a celebration meal.
Don't look too closely in the corners lol
Quirky, Warm and an experience.
Will we go again? Possibly tho to the main area where the food is cheaper more choice and the decor simpler for a normal evening out, but the surroundings of the Hotel restaurant are great for an 'occasion'
