We spoke to the maitre diocese to voice our concern...

The female owner has a terrible attitude and I have witnessed her talking to people like the are worthless. It was not a very nice thing to witness and I found her to be extremely rude. Found the service to be slow as well and the food average.

We went for one night for a friend's birthday celebration. We were in a separate building adjoining the hotel as we were a big party. The food was well presented, piping hot and really tasty. The menu didn't feel at all corporate with scallops and rack of lamb ..... delicious! The staff were particularly accommodating and were not distracted by...

Very good Atmostphere, excellent staff and pretty good food served by people who actually wanted to be there. Four of us had soups to start, followed by main course of Pork X 3 and Cod from the specials board. Coffees to round off with and we shared a bottle of rose wine.
