Thoroughly impressed by our stay and dinner here. Food was amazing - very high standard and they even offered to create us some dishes that were off-menu if we pre-ordered as they were quite a few vegetarians in our group. Rooms were very modern and...More

£18 for three pints of Aspall's and two very, and i mean very small portions of chips. Needless to say my partner and i will not be going back. The chips were awful, close on being cremated and didn't taste very nice either.
