Good grief EmmaL...I honestly do question whether this review is genuine as your comments are totally at odds with all the positive feedback we get about the warm welcome and professional service of our staff - who are anything but miserable! I am astonished that you can claim that our food is not homemade - it most certainly is not...

We visited here on Saturday the 17th, booking is advised as it's always very busy even on weeknights. We used to come here very regular for a steak meal but after a mediocre visit a few years back we fell out of love with the place and haven't returned.... until now. Nowhere else can cook steak like this place, I...

We've stayed here 3 times in the last 12 months, and each time we've been very happy with the overall experience. The rooms were all good. The staff are both friendly and efficient. In the evenings, the restaurant is buzzing, as it's very popular locally. The food is "only" pub-grub, but that description does it a disservice. It is executed...

Great meal and great service. The staff allocated us a side room that gave us the perfect space to relax with our children and celebrate my daughters birthday. The service was spot on which is rare with such a large group (15). We will definitely go again !!

The first night was very busy but we were offered drinks in our room whilst we waited for a table to become available and the next morning the housekeeping staff were very understanding due to a personal issue . Only slight negative...

Was in the area and decided to see if we could get in as often extremely busy on a Sunday. Managed to get a table for 6 as not too busy , but by 5:00pm most tables were full. Good selection on the menu, good quality food at reasonable prices. Separate quaint bar area. Well worth a visit

After a recommendation from a friend, I booked a table for my daughters birthday. After arriving, it took 20 minutes for one of the many useless waiters and waitresses to inform me that it was bar service rather than them taking orders. When we finally placed our orders, an hour later two rude young gentleman brought our orders over without...
