Ceaser served us in the restaurant and what a great asset he is. He was very attentive and nothing was too much trouble. A very friendly person who made us feel very welcome. All the other staff that we met from Reception, House Keeping and Bar Staff were all very good.

Fabulous afternoon tea with two friends and my daughter...beautiful sandwiches, great selection of cakes. My friend is gluten free, I don't take butter and nothing was a problem for the staff. I will be back again soon, many thanks to all.

drinks and barman were both top class,but unfortunately when we went for our meal,the menu list was scarce due to ours being with a package,it was 30 minutes service between all of the 3 courses(an hour and half to eat),then when i got my sticky toffee pudding it was dry in middle with very little toffee sauce.

The service was exceptional. We had booked and I think they had forgotten or lost the online and confirmed booking but this was resolved without question. Food was fantastic apart from the chips with the fish, the variety of spud was odd. We had just got married and we passed with our two friends and had a fantastic lunch. Would readily return again.

I can not fault my experience, overall everything was fantastic from the food down to the staff as always friendly and so helpful, they always make us feel welcome. There was other diners beside us that were abit too loud and vulgar, that was the only thing that may have put a little dent in the evening. Also in regards to your desserts it is a pity you don't have a wider selection for those who don't like chocolate for example, it's just after an amazing main course I would have loved to sample your desserts but none took my fancy. Thank you.

Tables were a bit tight to sit in and have afternoon tea. A round table would have been better to allow access in and out as opposed to a booth. Food was lovely.

We were here last night for a Nye meal there was 6 adults one child(12years old) and two babies. Firstly we were staying in hotel and when booking dinner wasn't told about set menu the menu had a bad selection of dishes although I did think reasonably priced the service was awful staff kept forgetting stuff were not friendly or welcoming at all they were all running around like headless chickens and actually making me feel stressed out watching them although hardly any tables taken up were we were sitting (beside the kitchen) although the bar was busy...but as far as I was aware there was no good being served in the bar. I wouldn't recommend the hotel either but that's a while diff issue *Decor was lovely in the restaurant

Unfortunately, even though I had booked a month in advance, we were put into the furthest corner of the restaurant, where we could see nothing, and nobody could see us. We waited 30 minutes for our main course, my partner ordered steak, which came with no veg or salad, just 2 portions of chips which were still raw and had to be sent back to be recooked. By the time we were offered dessert, we had run out of time as we had tickets to a show. All in all, a disappointing experience and we won't be returning.

We really enjoyed our meal at Arkle bar. So pleased with the quiet area in the snug, and the food was fabulous. We were extremely impressed by the staff, particularly Jack, He was extremely efficient and professional in all of his dealings with us, From the start of the evening to the end he was very efficient, professional but also extremely polite and friendly, We will recommend Arkle Bar to our friends and we hope to return soon.
