Called in last Sunday for a meal, the service and food was all excellent as always. There was 3 of us and we enjoyed a starter between us which was more than enough. Our meals were served the way we asked and the taste was delicious.

I have visited this hotel's restaurant several times over the years and never had a really bad meal and a few excellent meals. The quality of food is usually good but on an odd occasion the standard can drop a little but usually returns to normal.

4 of us ate in the restaurant and we all enjoyed our meals. The food was very good as was the service. We went early (6pm) and the main restaurant was very quiet. Soon picked up though. There were more people eating in the bar than the restaurant at that time. Great bar and a great smoking area as well.
