Great night spent here. Great food and lovely staff. Rooms comfortable and well equipped! Dining room is gorgeous but not great for veggies! Pub does pizza and other pub grub. Good wine list and lovely breakfast options. Good views. Would recommend.

We stayed a few nights. We were one of the newer blocks of rooms so they were fine but not memorably distinctive. The food in the bar was pretty basic pub fare (e.g fish & chips, burgers). The main restaurant aspires to be much more....More

Had a couple of drinks here while visiting Bucklers Hard, a museum to the shipbuilding past of the area. Drinks reasonably priced. Restaurant menu looked a little pricey but the meals we saw being brought out looked nice.

Visited for lunch - very average super food salad and dry, gluten free bread. Toilets absolutely disgusting in the main hotel. Very dirty even the door plate to the Ladies. Lovely view outside is the one thing going for it.

Fish and chips arrived extremely quickly. Large Plate salad had to be returned as starter size for £14. It was added to. Wine expensive for quality. £10?large glass of Pinot noir not of good quality. Staff young and friendly.

Not too impressed! Not at all friendly if you don't book in advance. We were made to feel most uncomfortable. Having said that we managed to get a table in the bar & the food was very nice. Would not return.
