Disappointed with service, eventually got my dinner well after everyone had finished eating although I ordered first. Food just average. Staff friendly

Large basic dining area. Reasonable choice of meals. We were happy with our choices. The site is a bit awkward to get to as it is at an intersection of a main road

The Hotel was busy on the Sunday Night we visited. Majority of people were families who all seemed to be enjoying them selves. Small queue for food and drinks which were then served reasonably promptly, hot and tasty. Nice place to visit.
