I don't expect much from hotel restaurants, but this was lower quality than usual; Fish and Chips you normally can't ruin, but it was dry and tasteless. I'd challenge the 'homemade' tartare sauce - seriously, whose home? Take a walk down the road, you get better food, and spend less.

Lamb was nice, treacle tart was cold and hard. Service brilliant. Prices are fair and wine list is decent. Would return.

Returned this week for coffee and cake with two colleagues. I had forgotten how peaceful and lovely the view is from the restaurant. From the front of the hotel you would never know what a lovely aspect the restaurant has.

Pre Booked, Pre Paid Meal for Two. Waiting staff uncertain what this entitles us to but it transpires we can order any food up to the value of £21.00 per person. Menu is limited but interesting. Starters arrived late and were missing elements. When this was pointed out some missing elements were brought out but others were out of stock.... More

As the title says, the lady behind the bar was great - knows what she is doing, does it quickly and is very friendly. Plenty of space to stand or sit in a group too.

The menu is quite limited. Offers a couple of vegetarian options. Quite pricey. My hubby had rib eye steak which he asked for cooking medium, it arrived very well done, no hint of pink. I had chicken breast in creamy mushroom sauce. Not much sauce and the chicken was quite dry, We felt that the food overall was a little... More

Something unique is happening at Clippers Gourmet Gallery. First, you help yourself to the gorgeous, mouthwatering starters, from smoked fish and terrines to salads and seafoods. Then, when you order your main course - and the specials change daily - it is prepared in full view in the central cooking gallery. As much fun as a cabaret! Wok-cooked dishes are sizzled on the spot from your own combination of ingredients. Vegetarians are particularly well-looked after, as the chef will discuss their requirements and create a dish to their taste. The ambience is informal and relaxed, the restaurant is filled with delicious sounds and aromas of cooking - great for couples, groups and families. The friendly service is a treat too.
