Service was extremely slow. We were passed multiple times by numerous members of staff while waiting to be seated - ignored by most. Menu isn’t great for lunchtime, missing panini’s & baked potatoes etc from previous menu. Food & drink overpriced. My nephew had a mock tail for £4.10 which was just orange & pineapple juice. Ridiculous. The decor was nice though and felt more spacious following refurb.

Food was nice and the restaurant looked beautiful. But felt it was very expensive, especially the desserts. It would put me off coming again. The staff couldn’t have been nicer, great service.

Unfortunately we had a very average meal. Our room was nice however no fault of the hotels we required a move at Midnight due to noise next door the lady who organised couldn’t have been more helpful. However we were moved to room 22when at 0640 ‘prefect day’ started booming from below which I can only image was the restaurant area followed by Whitney Houston. Thankfully we had been told to keep our original room key as we moved through the night. We went back 41 to try and get some more sleep unfortunately our neighbour had other ideas.

Unfortunately I did not enjoy the taste of my vegan option sweet potato burger. I felt it was also overpriced. In retrospect I should have complained at the time, however I was otherwise enjoying a very long awaited catch up with a friend. The staff all seemed pleasant and once the renovations are finished and the ladies loos are back in service I am sure the atmosphere will improve.

We were a table of 4 with 2 adults and 2 kids. We were sat in the right side near the bar. The welcome, ordering and food were all great and the food was very good if a little expensive. Once we had finished our food we were left for at least 20mins looking at empty plates that we had tidied up ready for clearing. I went to find the floor manager and asked to get a dessert menu and clear the plates. We were offered free dessert which was a nice gesture. The point of this review is to say that as we were sat opposite the kitchen doors all of the waitstaff had to pass us going to and from the kitchen so basically ignored our table so that needs to be looked at. We will be back though as the food was very good.

Thank you for your feedback. Sorry to hear about the error in clearing your plates. We are continually carrying out training with the team as it has been a while since they worked. However not an excuse to walk past your table so many times. Glad the manager was able to assist with the desserts.

Our waitress was just lovely she made sure we were comfortable and that our food was OK however was not overbearing. I'm sure her name was Sapphire. The food was delicious as always.

Service was ok, but waitress was a tad in our face when we were all trying to talk or eat maybe she needs self awareness. The food came at all different times but to be fair manageress gave us tea and coffees on the house which was much appreciated. Love the new decor.

The venue was nicely decorated but lacked atmosphere and it was very very cold ( folk kept their jackets on !) The fish platter we had was really lovely but the bread was stale and chips just warm.
