    Food was ok nothing much to write home about. I had to wait 40 minutes for a drink as no one could change a barrel bit disappointed.

    We’ve eaten here a few times and always been really impressed. Our visit this time was disappointing. The food was great as always but the service was terrible. The team member that greeted us and looked up our booking hardly spoke, it took around 20 minutes for them to come and ask if we wanted a drink. The service was slow throughout and after clearing our plates they never returned with a dessert menu. Once the bill arrived they had added a service charge. I did give them the feedback on the service and they were happy to remove the charge. Really unfortunate as we’ve always had decent service in the past.

    Nice Sunday lunch.

    Perfect as always!

    The restaurant and hotel is lovely very well decorated and great first impression. Upon entering the restaurant we were greeted at the desk and shown to our tables where we were left for about 2 minuets before a menu was brought over to us and had to ask for some water as he walked away. The menu’s them selves are over sized and awkward to have on your table. The wine list was brought over some time later.

    The menu choice was fine and the food was very nice, probably not really worth the money they were charging but it was enjoyable.

    Service was friendly when we got served, there is a fine line between to much and two little attentiveness but I felt we didn’t receive enough.

    Would I recommend this restaurant? Yes but mainly for the décor and the surrounding areas.
