A friendly, welcoming place to either have a drink or take a very reasonably priced meal. Really nice prompt service and a good choice of meals where you can relax afterwards and not feel they are wanting you to leave. Will be happy to visit again.

Food was excellent. Particular the steak and dessert! Staff were great, polite and well mannered. Bar staff also great when selecting a wine to accompany our meals.

Stayed at the hotel during a visit to a family Christening. The bar area was full of women in bathrobes and slippers having their hair done, not really the sort of activity to accompany food. To busy to feed us in the evening, had to go elsewhere to eat.

No greeting on arrival, found one person serving drinks in the adjacent bar who just told us to help ourselves!. Food of a very poor standard and lukewarm. Tables dirty, floor filthy.

We popped for a coffee. Tables dirty and full of glasses, plates etc. Nobody cane to clean the tables in 15 mins we were sat there. I went and ordered three coffees. They had "ran out of the normal cups", so gave two of the coffees in smaller "one shot cups".. same price! My own fault for not walking away.... More
