A friend and I decided to have Christmas Lunch out and while I wasn't initially impressed with the response on arrival to book our reservation, I have to say the food on the day was superb as was the service we received. We were very happy with out Christmas treat.

Eleven family members including three vegans and another needing a gluten free meal all had excellent food and the staff were all very friendly and efficient. Two people had the turkey dinner and Christmas pudding which they really enjoyed while I had the very refreshing melon and sorbet starter and the Malaysian chicken and prawn curry. The staff were very... More

My friend and I went this evening for a meal. Was not impressed, we had our starters served but no 1 around to get us a drink, if you want wine by the glass it's just the house wines unless you buy a bottle. I am a wheelchair user and when I went to go to toilets staff didn't offer... More

I was very disappointed to read your review of your experience in our hotel. It seems we did not meet your standards on any level. We have regular wheelchair users who like our situation but obviously it did not suit you. I am sorry our service was not good for you as normally it is one of our strong points.... More

Just had a lovely meal here with work colleagues past and present. Clean plates all round so that says a lot and not overly expensive as we were early and in time to choose our meal from the Early Bird menu. Wonderful staff, nothing too much bother. Looking forward to coming back soon. Thank you to all from the Registrars.

This place doesn't disappoint. Fitted in even though we were not booked in. Starters were great and main were even more amazing. The bar has a great selection of beers and ales. The staff are very attentive and always a delight.

recently had dinner here as a party of 5 persons. We were warmly greeted and promptly seated. The menu has quite a number of selections and also they seem to have daily specials as well.
