We stayed at the Holiday Inn attached to this restaurant and loved it. Value for money, superb food, drinks and service and the location and views from the bar are second to none, anywhere. We’re coming back for two weeks next year.

We visited as a family of five. Lots of great choices and specials and a well priced menu. Plenty of seating. We enjoyed three of their stone baked pizzas and some fish specials. Good choice of guest ales too.
