Better than expected
The service was great on Boxing Day and food tasty and good value. Unfortunately the restaurant was a little chilly.
Brilliant food which made our Boxing day even better.
Room cold initially. Unimpressed by the standard of the food,quality and preparation, which appears to have deteriorated.
Lovely food, lovely atmosphere and great staff as ever!
Thoroughly enjoyable evening with excellent and friendly service.
