My mother was unwell so I had to take her home. Asked for them not to cook my steak and I’d be back in 30 minutes but to serve my sisters who remained at the table. I came back within 30 minutes and was served a very dry and obviously precooked steak with all sides from before. Terrible considering the price and circumstances. Will not return or recommend.

The dining room was warm when I arrived but the air con changed to cold in both the dining room and bar. Far too cold to hang around given that the weather is cold.

We had a thoroughly great evening. We made a comment about one of the party being the birthday girl and a decorated birthday dessert plate was brought to her.

Fantastic venue. Lovely staff . Meal was excellent. Good value for money. Nothing was too much trouble. Our waiter was very good. Only one thing would be usefull..a list of non alcoholic cocktails. Having said that ..one was made up on the day for me. We would recommend and certainly be returning. Thank you

The private dining room was absolutely stunning it looked beautiful and the food was lovely. However the table was FAR too small for the 27 guests we had on Friday. People were having to eat one handed. We mention it to the stafff and they agreed it was too small and offered to put extra tables in (after our starter?!) which we obviously weren’t going to do mid meal! This was a real let down and really upset the guests which was a shame.

Good quality food, but portion size was rather small for a Sunday roast. 1 slice of beef, 2 roast potatoes, three baby carrots, a spoonful of mashed potato and a tiny amount of broccoli was rather insufficient, and left me hungry and I'm only a size 8/10!!

The breakfast was beautifully cooked, no oil in sight. Quantities were ample and served to our taste. A lovely dining experience for my young family.

Staff were welcoming and friendly. I'm a wheelchair user and it was obvious the team had been given good training. Menu choices were great and the food delicious and hot. And...The coffee was wonderful! Will be back.

We were waiting for food to be served for over an hour which is not acceptable. When the food finally came out it was cold and steaks were overcooked not a good experience.
