Dinner not so good ... I don't know what else to say ... It just wasn't good. I can't remember what I had, but after one dinner we decided to find other places for dinner in the following days.

The restaurant is predominantly for feeding courses and is arranged on a 'self service' basis i.e. take a tray and follow the queue to the carvery and then select your own vegetables,... More
