A little disappointed when we arrived as they didn’t appear to know we had booked online! The receptionist quickly arranged the table for the six of us. The service and meal was very good and plentiful. Further disappointment was we were charged wrong but again the receptionist quickly credited our card.
Lovely place Are we right saying that chef has changed ? Other Diners had commented and were recommending other place’s to eat. Fair price but meal wasn’t anything special, meat was tough. Which lead to the questions about the chef If you’ve got anything to add in reply it would be most welcome
On arrival we were told there was no booking and the restaurant was full. They hadn't checked the electronic system so then had to scramble to make a table for 7 people. The manager, advised on how to find the booking, however should probably dress more appropriately, its not nice seeing a belly hanging out of clothes at reception. The restaurant hasn't changed, it's like stepping back into the 70s, or an oap home. It even still smells the same. Menu adequate. No kids menu although very accommodating with providing kids food. Food was excellent although just thrown on a plate. Melon didn't come with the advertised summer fruits. Anything extra we asked for we got. 2 waitresses were lovely. Service was prompt. At the end of the meal, felt we had to leave because only ones in there, staff clearing round us. Asked an elderly member of staff for the bill. Which was provided however given to a lady on the table rather than placed on the table. No wallet/plate for the bill. We then had to find staff to pay. Seemed problematic. Then needed to split the bill 3 ways which nobody could do. Passed to the elderly male waiter again who couldn't add up. Gave him £32 cash then wanted to pay 2 lots of 32 quid on 2 cards. Had to. Keep repeating that total payment would be 96 quid which includes a tip. Don't know how many times he told us it wasn't enough for a 90 quid bill!!!! Eventually he got it, once my mother (who's a maths teacher) gave him a very brief maths lesson. So the hotel and menu hasn't changed in decades. However if you want an extremely dated and traditional, cheap Sunday dinner then this is your place. Menu is adequate even with melon starters and black forest gateaux pudding, just missing a prawn cocktail 😂 it's value for money. Not the best service. But it does what it says on the tin. We won't be back, not out cup of tea but it's obviously popular for oap's
