Came for Sunday lunch, the room was very classy, but no atmosphere at all! The outside looked tired, we sat in a window table, so looked out alot! The food was not good, it was cheap, so good value, but the food was very average, the Yorkshire were soft, and the veggies lacked taste! But I did have a lovely time eating out with my teenagers and it was very affordable! £40 for the 3 of us!

Normally give 5 stars but I feel the carvery wasn't as good yesterday. The roast potatoes were hard , some of the pork was a bit chewy and there was no cheesecake on the dessert menu .

My 1st visit in Jan '20 was wonderful we couldn't fault it. My 2nd visit in Feb '20 was however a little disappointing. The atmosphere and decor are lovely but the quality of the food drink and service was poor, so has been an off putting experience to return sadly.

the volume of the background music was rather high making conversation with other members of our party difficult.

Service was pleasant enough however we had to go up to a waitress to ask about our order as no one came back to us once we were seated. would have preferred a different type of potato to be available on the carvery as my 8 year old does not like roast potatoes and that was all that was available, would have preferred some mash or new potatoes.

We really enjoyed our Afternoon tea for a friends birthday. The food and service was excellent and the restaurant itself was spot on, we will definitely book again especially if its 2 for £15 again, well worth the money.

The meal was superb and good value for money as we used a 50% discount voucher....I liked the Gluten Free options on the menu and pleased there was so many options on that menu...the waitress Sophie was a gem, so friendly and helpful but the hotel itself lacks atmosphere because there weren't that many people having lunch...I can't fault the hotel or staff, parking is great, toilets so clean and food is superb so why aren't people chosing this hotel for lunch? I wish I knew and wish I could suggest what would change things there..perhaps a more simplified menu with cheaper eats as we only chose there cos of the 50% discount...I think a daily carvery would work too

The afternoon tea offer was lovely, and catering for a vegetarian by letting us order from the VEGAN menu was lovely so the three of us could have a lovely afternoon catchup! Please do more special offers... thank you.

Personally I had a lovely time celebrating my mothers 90th birthday with you. The staff went out of there way to be helpful at the table. Unfortunately one of our party were very unimpressed that they had to pre-order their meal and even when they did so the choice chosen ie gluten free crumble was not available. The beef was also slightly tough according to a few of the guests and lack of mashed potatoe was noted This was really unfortunate for me as I had handled the booking (and paid for all) and all I can say is my meal was superb and the young lady waiting on was incredibly patient :) I am sure I will be back again just not so sure about the upset guest, sorry!!

Very poor atmosphere. Only one person serving behind bar for most of the evening. Incorrect orders sent out. Food and service definitely not the same standard as last year and will not be booking again for next year
