The hotel itself had a very warm and friendly atmosphere and the food was very good value. This hotel is well worth a visit if today was indicative of their normal standards. If... More

We were staying in the area and stopped off here for an evening meal. We sat in the bar area on a comfortable sofa. We had a lovely, relaxed meal and some drinks. The food was very good and the staff very helpful. We would go back again.

Yet again we have had a wonderful stay with the accomodation and meals being absolutely superb. We were so impressed with the superior quality of the food that we asked if the chef had time to come and see us so that we could congratulate him on his cooking skills. As always Suzanne and her team were brilliant and made... More

My starter of warm duck with hoi-sin sauce and salad was, to be generous, minimalistic! consisting... More
