We had an excellent meal at the Reivers as part of our stay at the hotel. Both table d'hôte and a la carte menus had a good choice, and everything was well presented and well cooked. the chef understands steak. The service was quick, knowledgeable and cheerful.

Have eaten there twice whilst on a visit a was somewhat dissappionted. For one the selection was too small the choice very limited and a little boring . Just needs a little more thought.

You have a choice of a set menu or a la carte. We found both were very good value. Lovely steak, cooked just as we asked and a really good peppercorn sauce. Staff were always on hand to help my husband if he needed it. Have been here before and would reccomend it.

Excellent quality of food and good variety on menu. Maybe another few dishes could be added to give more choice but this does not retract from the food we enjoyed. Very pleasant and friendly staff who go out of their way to help provide you with everything you ask for.

We were booked into the hotel but found it was quite expensive to have dinner so we had to find somewhere else.
