This was the 2nd time we'd dined in the hotel - the first being several years ago. We remembered the friendly atmosphere and great food so couldn't wait to go back and found its still as good as we remembered. Maggie particularly enjoyed the seafood chowder and Brian enjoyed a bit of craic with Murray at the bar. There was no live music but some terrific videos being played. In winter, there's a wonderful log fire burning. The gardens are lovely, loads of parking - what more can you want. The Boyd family from Ireland settled in the area & there is a history board in the garden with the Boyd timeline. Interesting place, well worth a visit and a great choice for party celebrations.
