Lovely meal but any vegetables are extra, and quite expensive for a small dish. Service is generally very good.

Visited the hotel and had a meal in the restaurant bar. I have to say I was totally disappointed in the quality of food served. It was competely obvious that this was not a home made sauce and the chicken was cerainly not fresh. It was like eating a piece of old leather with a cook-in sauce poured over it.... More

I had not eaten here for some three or four years as I'm not in the area very often any more, but ate here on a Monday night and the food was every bit as good as I had remembered. There were six of us and we were all delighted with our meal. Service was friendly and efficient. Looking forward... More

We had a wonderful three course meal at lunchtime today. We had goat cheese balls and garlic mushrooms to start. Both dishes were delicious. Next we had lamb shank and gammon, both off the specials board and both wonderful. We had cheesecake and sticky toffee pudding for dessert. Three courses and no complaints, and I'm quite a fussy eater. Very... More

Spent many birthday celebrations at this restaurant & have always enjoyed every meal. The quality & variety of food is a delight to see, the only down side is that you cannot book a table you just have to arrive & wait to be seated

Called here recently on the way home from Cardiff. I'd checked with the restaurant so was aware that they were open for food on a Sunday evening. Three of us had the supreme of chicken stuffed with stilton, wrapped in bacon on tagliatelli, with cream & white wine sauce which was fantastic. If you order this, you are informed that... More

Went here for lunch, it was beautiful. Can't complain! Prices are reasonable for the location. Can't complain. Although sat in the bad area didn't really have much of an atmosphere! Photos are main meal (had potatoes with it in a side dish which is included inn meal price) and mushrooms for starter! 😊
