Hotel restaurant that is open to non residents and is well worth visiting as it is good value for money compared with other dining options in Hugh town. White tablecloth restaurant or more informal area by the bar. Good polite service. Excellent mains and desserts to die for. Huge chocolate brownie!

Arriving for a special celebration on a very wet March evening we were a little surprised at how quiet the Spirit restaurant was, however we were undeterred by the lack of atmosphere, which was more than made up for in the quality of both the service and food served. French onion soup to start followed by a chicken and steak... More

Not a very interesting menu unless you wanted to have lobster or crab. Distinct lack of vegetables. Pleasant enough staff but most had only a basic knowledge of English so it was difficult to raise points about the food.

I was apprehensive because the hotel dining-room looked a bit unpromising, but our meal was very good indeed. The young members of staff were friendly and helpful, but I would say not very experienced. Actually, as professional service often irritates me, I shouldn't hold it against them, and the whole 'dining experience' was enjoyable.

We have stayed in the hotel in the past and returned to eat here twice this year. We had one meal in the restaurant and another in the bar area. Wherever you eat it is the same quality. A wide choice of menu and all food was of a high standard. The staff are extremely friendly and can't do enough... More

The staff were friendly and helpful. The menu and specials were excellent. The toffee apple sundae was delightful. It's been updated since my last visit and is tastefully decorated.

After a rather wet and dull day on St Mary's a trip to the Spirit restaurant really brightened up our evening. The meals tasted wonderful with a good range due to the evening specials. The staff were friendly yet discreet. I would highly recommend this place for an evening meal!
