My wife and l ate here with the promise of culinary delights. Oh how disappointing. The selfish bisque was as expected salty if not a little too much but was OK. However, it was downhill after that. My wife ordered a filled fish but no fish was filled and the chef refused to fillet it for my wife. Her attempts to do so resulted in disaster so abandoned that course. My main course was pasta which was incredibly salty. Courses returned payment refunded.

Four star prices, very shabby seating and tables, mediocre and expensive food, stunning views .
Far better hotels and restaurants elsewhere

Met friends here for dinner. Food was OK but expensive for what it was. Fish and chip (quite a small portion) and a burger both, costing £15 each. We also waited a long time for our food, well over half an hour, with no apology/explanation from staff. We found staff quite curt and not naturally friendly. There was a party in the hotel which may have slowed things down, but a friendly notice of this would have helped. Keith's brasserie as it is now called is in a lovely setting with great views.

I didn't expect to like this place, we arrived and it was heaving, a couple of days before Christmas. There were no vacant tables, we weren't very keen on waiting, but it was 'brass monkeys' outside and we were hungry.When a table became available we ordered and were very pleased when the food arrived pretty quickly and with a very pleasant and attentive waitress.They were working flat out, but despite the general craziness everyone was very pleasant and efficient. The food though, not cordon bleu, was very acceptable, for such a place, the room was wacky in its decor and,all in all we enjoyed our brief mealtime, we also had an amusing time people watching.
