We visited friends who were staying overnight for an afternoon drink. It was a warm but windy afternoon and when we retreated inside it was great attention to detail that they had lit the fires. We ended up staying for supper and had an excellent meal in the busy dining room. A nice surprise on a Sunday evening. The food... More

Very excited about the prospect of getting married here until shocking customer experience. After arranging a meeting with the manager to discuss a wedding, we turned up at appointed time for her not to be there and the staff non the wiser to who we were. No call prior and no apology afterwards. Gave her the benefit of the doubt,... More

I was recently treated to a suprise birthday supper at this restaurant. Admittedly it was a Wednesday evening but the place was dead, just two other couples in the large and cold restaurant who left well before us. The food and service was excellent, the decor suprising and somewhat 'The Only Way is Essex' but in a good way! We... More

I used to love this place - the set menu offered fantastic innovative food at reasonable prices. Last week we arrived to find the restaurant empty and the choice of an over priced lunch menu, or bar snacks. The food was SO disappointing compared to before and of a quality that was 'adequate' but at those prices should have been... More

good food in lovely surroundings. service bit slow due to staff illness but was very good food. Very modern décor for an old building would have been nice if fires were lit in winter. Also some of the décor looked a bit tired. But overall a funky atmosphere, good food in lovely old building.

Disappointing that in the restaurant the lunchtime specials menu is no longer available. Even though the place is always empty on Saturday lunchtimes. The hotel is now under new management but the food was not very nice. Fish was undercooked and very overpriced, chips were like cheap oven chips so not very tasty. Apple crumble for desert was far too... More

Went here after being given a voucher for a birthday present. We had our tea in an upstairs lounge which was very light and airy with great views. The décor was very eclectic and wonderful. We were warmly greeted and quickly served with a drink after which our tea was served. The sandwiches were fairly plain as far as the... More

Great stay and lovely quirky rooms, the manager called Gresham (not sure on the spelling) really looked after us. On finding out that it was our anniversary he even gave us a bottle of Champagne! Then he was serving and looking after the restaurant and we had the tasting menu (my favourite way of eating) and we loved it, matching... More
