I live a mile down the road so I am unlikely to stay at this hotel, but I ate there, as do many other locals. The restaurant does not appear separately on TA, so here goes: Sunday lunch, I booked a table though that didn't appear essential, as the dining area seemed to be about 3/4 full. A good Sunday...
