We came here on a Sunday lunchtime with a party of 20 for my 60th birthday. It was absolutely fantastic. The staff couldn't have been more attentive. The menu had a choice of about 6 dishes for each course and everyone agreed it was very well presented and delicious ( a bargain at £23 a head). We thoroughly enjoyed it...

Dined here Saturday evening around 8pm for the first time and the restaurant was full. Didn't have to wait too long for our table which was set in the main dining room. Ambience and decor was excellent as was the table settings and overall "feel" of the place. We ordered from the Table D'hote menu which was excellent value and...

Nothing is too much trouble for the staff who all have a warm and friendly attitude. The restaurant serves excellent food from a wide ranging menu for both lunches and evenings. The rooms are spotlessly clean with all the usual facilities. High recommended.

We had a conference at the hotel including an overnight stay. Everything was very comfortable, and the food was excellent, as it has been on all previous visits. However, I am always frustrated by the poor internet performance. However, unless internet performance is critical then this is a great venue.

Stayed here for the one night and had a really good time. Whilst the bedroom was quite small it was adequate for an over night stop. All the staff were very friendly and helpful during the whole stay. The weather did not encourage us to go out and about but the grounds we could see looked well kept and would...
