Wow - booked christmas day lunch for 4 at the hotel - a huge amount of food which was gorgeous. 5 courses and even a visit from father christmas himself. Not rushed, with the right amount of time between courses. Was stuffed for hours afterwards. Always had a good meal at St Mary's and christmas day was no different. Good...

We all thoroughly enjoyed our Christmas lunch yesterday, the food was superb and there was a lovely Christmassy atmosphere, and with Santa arriving with presents for the children was the highlight of the afternoon. Staff were lovely, nothing too much trouble. Well done St Mary's

Had a fantastic Christmas Day lunch here. Could not fault the food, service or atmosphere. A big thank you to all the staff as it can't be much fun working on Christmas Day.

We arrived just after 5pm and ordered a drink while we waited for the kitchen to open. The menu has a good selection & we chose a Caesar salad & fries as well as pie of the day which was steak and ale. The salad & fries were nice however the pie was average and disappointing. The pie was not...

Played the golf course Sunday and it is dreadful. Worst course I've played all year. Fairways hadnt been mowed for at least a week. Greens were shocking. Unrepaired pitchmarks on nearly every green. Tee conditions were embarrassing. They were not dissimilar to my back garden and that has a dog and 2 kids trampling over it most days. Will never...
