We have visited the Crafers Hotel on several occasions.

We had a get together last week at the bar. The manager at the bar was horrible to us. He even yelled one of the staff member in front me. He doesn't know anything about customer service at all. We are really disappointed and never come back again.

We felt we had listened and responded to your concerns following your recent Facebook post. We clearly explained to you that we were booked out on the night in question and... More

we were greeted by a happy young lady who made us feel very welcome and special guests. The menu was explained well, the food when it came had a French touch to it and the prices were excellent. The hotel is in the process of being renovated and it has lots of character. Well worth a visit. Hope one day... More

Since this pub has been renovated, it has become one of the top restaurants in the hills. Really tasty and well presented food, not excessively pricey. Staff are fantastic. Good place also for a business lunch.

The premises, food, staff are all excellent. We spoke to the chef wondering what a flavour in the sauce was, not only did he tell us, but gave us the recipe.
