Stayed at the hotel and for one night had the three course meal. The starter was lovely and freshly homemade. The main meal had the fillet steak which was made perfectly to my liking with the amazing Diane sauce! Overall was a lovely evening meal with welcoming and nice service.

Staying for two nights at this lovely hotel for the first time. Had dinner at the restaurant last night. Prior to dinner we were served canapés in the lounge. I had chicken liver parfait for starters and pork fillet for main course. Food was tasty and service was great.

Where do I begin? The food at this hotel is delicious and the added bonus to an already wonderful place to visit. The restaurant is set in the conservatory at the back of the hotel which has beautiful views to appreciate. This most definitely adds to the atmosphere and the meal itself. We have booked into the restaurant for all our visits I can honestly say we've never been disappointed! Truly wonderful food and always good choice, especially the steak and sticky toffee pudding! I love our dining experience, from the drinks in the bar to the meal itself, not one to be missed!

A rare find. A restaurant with top class service, food and surroundings but with down-to-earth, friendly owners. You relax in the bar with a drink whilst your food is prepared before being taken into the restaurant. It felt like a Michelin star restaurant only without the price tag and stuffy clientele. The price was above average for most restaurants in the area but worth every penny and worth it for a treat. Will definitely go again.
