We arrived lunch time, but there were no staff to be seen! Eventually we were seated and ordered Tuna & Cheese Melt, which came with salad and chips. The presentation was straight out of "Great British Menu" and fortunately the food matched it. Really delicious!

Our hotel stay was very good value with a special offer. Dinner and breakfast were both good, and surrounding countryside was lovely. When my wife was poorly, the manager could have been more helpful over swapping our inclusive dinner to another night, but other than that, excellent.
