We ate at the lodge. The surroundings are lovely. Staff are very attentive and the service was great from the moment we arrived. They also made special allowances for my elderly mother, I had asked if she could be close to heater and they made sure she was nice and warm. Thank you and look forward to seeing you very soon.

Beetroot salad with only two small piece of beetroot in it. Asked for no bread bun on burger as I wife does not eat bread but came in a bun Had to send grapes back on cheese board as they where mouldy. Had two cheese boards three selection of cheese on one board and four selection on second board. Not very impressed as we spent £190.00.

Great food and atmosphere. However, the service was not as good as it could be. We were sat in the part nearest the main entrance and had to fetch a waiter on several occasions to take our drinks and food orders.

I had a great evening with a lifelong friend. The atmosphere was good although the music so loud, at times it was difficult to have a conversation. Don’t get me wrong, I am a huge music lover but on this occasion without the ability to dance to it, nightclub loud, it was at times more of an intrusion than a enhancement. The food was fine, the drinks expensive, the service faultless. A lovely evening but a treat rather than a weekly event. £107 for 2 was borderline overpriced!

I was disappointed with the food, 2 of us had fish and chips, the fish was watery and the mushy peas weren’t nice and at £17 each it was expensive! Shame as had been looking forward to coming.

The fish in the fish and chip meal could have been cooked a little more, some of the batter was not as crisp as it might have been and appeared slightly under-cooked. Excellent staff, very enjoyable atmosphere, canopy worked well despite the worst efforts of the weather, knee blankets appreciated.
