Have met clients here as it is so conveniently located and with outside seating.
The positives are that the staff are universally lovely and cant do enough for you.
From the doorman to the serving staff they are all great but the food & beverage is not up to the standards that this location deserves.
A couple of pots of tea are a tenner, which is absolutely fine but not if they are tea bags. I would expect nothing less than loose leaf tea.
We have eaten on the terrace and the less said about that the better.
Hopefully senior management will read this and take note.

We were staying at the Hotel, so decided to eat in the small restaurant. Staff were very helpful. The mushroom risotto was excellent, my partner had the chicken quesadilla which were very tasty. The menu was not extensive but still worth the money’s

4 of us were on the Groupon voucher plus 2 other guests.
Everyone was very happy with their food (and the very delicious bread which we ate far too much of!)
The service was great and they were very accommodating, very enjoyable evening thank you!

My wife and I had dinner here using a Groupon voucher (£49 for three courses each and a glass of either Prosecco or Aperol Spritz). It was a set menu but still plenty to choose from. Some higher-end dishes attracted a surcharge but this wasn’t excessive.

The restaurant itself is pleasant enough. Standard hotel restaurant decor. The staff were extremely welcoming and provided excellent service. The food wasn’t much to write home about though sadly. Lovely hot bread was served with our Prosecco (which was in a beautiful glass it must be said). Starters were the best course. I had salt and pepper squid with a chilli jam which was very good and my wife had cauliflower and keens cheddar soup which was served with a big cheesy croutons which she loved. I opted to pay a surcharge for the rib eye steak for main course which I asked for rare. Now I expect rare to be hot and seared on the outside whilst still bloody in the middle. What I got was a just about lukewarm grey piece of meat which, the fat of which had not been rendered so was still like jelly. Inside the meat was dry and on the blue side of rare. It wasn’t particularly tasty (I don’t think it has been seasoned before cooking) and certainly wasn’t bloody. I regularly cook steak at home and sear and seal it on a hot griddle pan so that it has a nice char but it is still juicy inside. It’s easily done.

For pudding I had the lemon tart with clotted cream which was average. My wife had date pudding (essentially sticky toffee pudding) which was dry but sitting on a pool of sickeningly sweet sauce. Again, average.

It was an enjoyable experience in general for the money paid but not somewhere I’d return to in a hurry or pay full price for.
