Once we ordered it took forever for the food. We had a small Caesar salad and the pasta special for the day. Both were good it just took way too long. The servers were really nice

I generally like going to the Park, whether it be for coffee or sometimes for tea and I think the staff are friendly, but our family (adults and kids) went there yesterday and had carvery and I was a bit disappointed. The carvery itself was nice and we got plenty of food, but I was very disappointed in having to... More

I visited here twice both Jan & Feb this year. I really can't fault the staff or food but on both occasions unfortunately we found the bar area & seating area to be very dirty. We had our 11 month baby girl with us & we got a high chair, lucky we had wipes with us as the baby chairs... More

My expectations where set quite high, considering this was a "4" star hotel and was originally costing 30e and... More

Went here for an advertised event over the Christmas period. It was a total joke. Drinks all over the bar and the tables. Plastic cups only. Total incompetence. It was like a badly organized house party. Advertised 90s night but basically seemed to be an excuse to play bad dance music.

Saturday afternoon, weekend before Christmas week. You'd think that the hotel might have expected to be busy with food & drink service - abysmal service. Two staff on that clearly weren't equipped to serve drinks, clear the bar counter or even clear the many used tables dotted around the bar area. I have visited this hotel/bar when it was owned...

Visited here for a carvery lunch with the family. The queue was literally out the door! That speaks volumes for value for money and the quality of the food! Wonderful! Will be back.
