The service, food and drink was second to none. There was a good selection available on the menu. The staff were amazing and made us feel relaxed and welcome at all times. They were very kind when it was my Mother's birthday.

Our group of six enjoyed an evening meal in the Hound restaurant. The evening was a great success - friendly and attentive staff and very good food.

Top class. The nicest food I’ve had in years. The quality of the food is light years ahead of more expensive restaurants. I’ll be back for sure.

Fab hotel and location with lovely staff. Food was average though and generally we didn’t think our stay was a 5 star experience. We didn’t think it was good value for money.

I have been a few times and every time the service is appalling - food is ok. It is not a five star. Will not visit again.

There were 3 in our party and each of us really enjoyed our meal. It was delicious actually, well presented with perfect portion size. It was also very reasonably priced for the quality.

We enjoyed wonderful food and great service while we celebrated a birthday in The Hound. We were a big group and all our needs and wants were met without any drama. The staff and setting was perfect.

We had a really disappointing meal at the Hound. Our food took over an hour, no one checked on us during this time or took another drinks order. After 45 minutes we had to ask if our food was on the way, a further 15 minutes later, as we were about to leave, it arrived. Our sides never arrived, we ordered more drink once our meal had arrived, they didn't come, we asked again. The drinks eventually arrived, the wrong drinks... The food itself was actually good but the service was really terrible. Our drinks were taken off, plus a further 10%, however the manager had said that the mains would be taken off, they were not. There was little by way of apology, in fact we were told the problem was that we hadn't ordered starters...it should not take an hour for two medium rare steaks to be prepared. We will definitely not be back.
