Wonderful food, wonderful service and a pleasant atmosphere. Shame that the rest of the Hotel is so tired! Needs some love and it will be a great venue.

Ordered sirloin steak with side order of onion, rings, mushrooms and tomatoes. Only the onion rings arrived. Too hungry to complain. Sirloin steaks were fatty, tough and chewy. We were not provided with or or offered steak knives. At no time did the waiter ask us how our meal was. On paying for our meal, the girl serving us asked us "was everything alright with your meal?" To which I responded by telling her the steaks were disappointing, she replied..."Oh really?!". Poor customer service, staff training imperative. This was an anniversary meal. Unfortuately very disappointing.

No mussels in the fish pie although stated in the menu. Very ‘rustic’ presentation. Small portion of salad with butterfly chicken. Lack of direction when fire alarm went off. And we were left standing outside and not told it was ok to come back in.

Good food. Not much variety of gins. Staff accommodating. Had to wait a while for dessert. Dessert was quite small. Overall a bit expensive but ok for a treat, wouldn’t be able to afford regularly. We paid over £90 for the 2 of us for 3 courses and 2 drinks each, quite pricey.

If you have no espresso machine don’t advertise espresso, cappuccino etc on your menu. Sort out your payment machine.

Terrible service, had to wait 40 minutes before the main course came out and a further 25 minutes for the pudding. When the food came it was not only cold but tasted as if it had come out of the freezer. Shocking food and very slow service.

It wasn't obvious where it is - maybe a sign outside the building? Fantastic food.

Everybody in my party enjoyed the food. The only point I would say is please put cheese on first then tuna as mine was overly tuna and not enough cheese. I like it cheese nearest the potato so as it melts.
