After calling ahead to book a table at 7:30pm for dinner we arrived at 7:30pm to be told our table wasn't ready, we could have a drink outside whilst we waited and someone would come and get us. That was fine however by 8:15pm not one member of staff had been to see us despite us going back in to... More

Disappointing meal - dry chicken, lamb ribs were quite nice. Desserts very average. Wouldn't be in a hurry to return. Friendly staff.

We have been here on and off for many years constantly retrying with the hope it would improve. Tonight we had a great meal well priced and with lovely attentive service. I would definitely say go and give it a go you won't be disappointed - we weren't anyway!!

We dined here twice because we were staying at the attached hotel. I had breakfast here - same order but never the same twice! Dinner was odd!

We waited an hour for our food, only for an order to come out wrong. There were tables that arrived after us being served first. The waitstaff were not apologetic about this, and we were not warned of the wait upon entering.

Good food, fast but was told to take a seat and waiter would come to us, but in the end we had to go back up to get our order taken

Everything we ate in this restaurant was very good. I really loved their croquettes, very yummy. I'd recommend, though, to improve their cocktails offer.
