Nothing to rave about, below average basic food, very basic wine list, the beer offer being a bit better. Ok if you're stuck I guess.

Just average fare, although staff member did go out of his way to get Lasange which was not on the evening menu. Obviously this hotel has a bit to do on the food scene as the hotel had a large number of guests but few were eating inhouse
