Myself, my husband and father came for a meal. When we entered the bar area it appeared to be run by a group of teenagers who completely ignored us when we entered. Finally a woman sitting having a drink on a bar stool said to us would you like some menus. Staff need to learn some customer care sills such...

This is the first time we had visited the Steamboat but I'm told it is now in new ownership. We met the couple who own the Inn and found them both to be both hospitable and very friendly. We had both lunch and dinner and both meals were of excellent quality and good portion size. Dogs are made very welcome...

This is our second visit in a few months and people have always given high praise of the Steamboat. However the first time we visited we had to wait 1hour for starters and another 1hour 30mins for main course which is ridiculously slow. This time the visit was exactly the same with at least a 2 hour wait for main...
