As a priest I often attend the meal or buffet after a funeral. This was one such occasion, the room had a balcony and large windows with a very nice out look, the bar was close by and the room spacious accommodating everyone comfortably. It was set out with large round tables. The buffet, whilst a simple affair was plentiful...

This is the second time I have been with friends for lunch and found it to be excellent. Good quality food, very good service, comfortable seating, and pleasant lounge to relax in with coffee after a very filling meal.

Stayed twice now and found both rooms to be quiet, spacious and comfortable. I would struggle to fault this place as somewhere to stop over. If staying in Newtown, you couldn't find a much better location. Breakfast selection isn't huge, however good quality.

This was our first ever experience of eating out on Christmas day for our party of 10. 2 of our party have eaten out several times over the years on Christmas day. We had pre ordered and paid, which was great, no worrying about sorting out a bill after. The table was really nicely presented, good space around the table...

We attended one of the Xmas party nights here. We all had a fantastic night. Room was decorated nicely. Food was nice, served quickly and hot ! I thought the staff all worked hard to serve such a large amount of people. Band was also excellent. We will definatley be back again.

We had a table booked for a "Christmas Party Night'. We were asked to be there for 7.30. The room was set out like a school canteen other than a few round tables. The starters were served by some very young girls and fair play they were doing their best as there were 2 very official looking ladies with clipboards....

I stayed only one night on business. The staff were friendly. There are two types of rooms, smaller "bothy" rooms and "executive" rooms with the second being nearly twice the price of the first (i.e. top rate for the area I would think). My bothy room overlooked the road but some (all?) of the exec rooms overlook the river. During...

Stayed here on business for one night and had a refurbished room. It was comfy, a bit warm and shower was a bit weak but overall it was ok. Breakfast was lovely with prompt service. The cost I paid I found a little expensive for what I got however that is not necessarily a criticism as it may well be...
