Visited recently with friends for Sunday Lunch. We have been many times before but not for year or so. Love the decorative style of the lounge/bar area upstairs and the canapes with our pre-dinner drinks, before going down into the formal dining room with traditional white tablecloths and service.

We've had numerous visits to The Dining Room and the food has always been good if not a little over priced. Service on our last visit was abrupt, functional and at the end of the meal quite frankly rude! Shame really as all our group are local but unlikely to return as other restaurants value the business more and are... More

In the run up to Christmas The Dining Room includes a 3 course evening dinner menu for £23 which also includes canapés and delicious home made bread. Could there be better value anywhere, whether for the belly pork with crackling which really does.....crackle, the smoked haddock, beautifully cooked, or the succulent chicken, all accompanied by generous helpings of vegetables cooked...

We booked The Dining Room restaurant for 10 of us for our annual get together. We all travel from around Britain and we wanted somewhere close to our hotel. We were met by lovely friendly staff who showed us upstairs where we could sit and relax and have a drink whilst choosing from the menu. We were then called down... More

We walked in of the off chance on a wet Friday night, looking a bit bedraggled. We had eaten here last year during one of their lobster weeks and had a fantastic meal. We weren't disappointed this time either. Fantastic food, good wine list and excellent service. Highlight of the meal was the champagne jelly. Out of this world! We... More

Went again during our annual trip. Once again delicate flavours and everything perfectly cooked. Friendly service as seema normal. New to us was the excellent, fresh made bread. We enjoyed the lounge before & after the meal once again. Really cannot understand why it isn't busier.
