Called in here yesterday on our way to the airport. The menu was varied & GF wasn't a problem. The OH had a salmon & monkfish duo which she said was very nice , the toasted special was the norm. Nice setting & helpful staff also reasonable price.

It's lovely when a hotel has a nice delicious restaurant on site. My husband and I got a table right away. The service was friendly and prompt. Our meals were delicious with generous portions. Breakfast the next morning was also very good. Lots of options including porridge, eggs, bacon, sausage, pastries and cereal. We would definitely eat here again.
