Food was good. We were on a post Christmas night out but quite expensive for what it was but was ok. We weren't in the restaurant but in the bar food area. Think for bar foodwas quite over priced

We did dine at the bar of the hotel, as our dog was allowed to accompany us. Very cozy corner and great ambiance. Good choice of dishes and great service with a smile.

Our hosts had erected a marquee next to the petanque terrain close to the hotel and what a magnificent backdrop the hotel made. However, we were invited to... More
