This is a large restaurant with a nice atmosphere. The staff were friendly and stopped to talk. There are lovely outside tables for the summer which I am sure will be filled with no problem. The choice of food is good. I had the beer battered fish and it was a very generous size, the chips were very nice and... More

Stayed here for three nights bed and breakfast in one of their lodges in September. The staff at reception were very friendly and welcoming. Our room was of a good standard. Spotlessly clean with a comfy bed, big flat screened TV and good sized bathroom with shower. They had tea making facilities which were a bit skimpy we thought with... More

You could have a choice of rice or chips or a mixture but the presentation... More

We arrived and were seated and warned that there was a fifty minute wait for food, no problem we had been out and about all day. The staff were friendly but not over attentive, the food was well cooked and plenty of it, I opted for the mixed grill, others had the surf 'n' turf, build a burger and hunters... More

Great looking place for family's and has the lot there, we initially thought it might be a little upmarket but decided to give it a go. Once inside looks great and served straight away at bar., then the language on some of the staff and other people at the bar just knocked the stars off the chart, we had 2... More
