Booked for a bar meal with a group of friends. Some of us wanted the set meal that is only served in the restaurant. The staff managed to get us a table set up in the restaurant. Nothing was too much hassle. As there were 9 of us they served us drinks in the lounge afterwards so we could all...

Nice menu with lots of choice - jackets, wraps, paninis, homemade quiche, salads and bigger options such as fish n chips. We opted for paninis with a side salad and...

So the 1970's exterior may give some foreboding, but the...

We stay here every time we visit Cumbria, everything you want and need from an excellent quality town centre hotel. The rooms are more than comfortable with lovely extras such as fluffy robes and even a glass of port. The lounge bar is a lovely place to relax in the evening with a bottle of wine and menu choices to...

Dear carol, It is with obvious sadness and regret from ourselves, that on your recent visit to the Central Coffee shop.

However to wait as long...
