Excellent Sunday lunch, great selection on menu something for every one, friendly staff, dining room is spotless, fresh water and bread on tables, food served quickly and plentiful. Lovely fresh vegetables and plenty of potatoes, lovely home made chips. Great place for a family Sunday lunch. Staff are helpful and nothing is too much bother, would highly recommend this place.

We stayed at this hotel recently for 4 nights and enjoyed our visit very much. The staff are all lovely and nothing was too much trouble. We ate in the restaurant every night and the food was very tasty and plentiful. The rooms are a bit on the small size, but clean and comfortable. Definitely worth a visit.
