A wholesome menu, well presented and very appetising. Would recommend the 'Queenies' (I think they are female scallops). The steak was cooked to absolutely perfection. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly

We ate here when they were holding their weekly steak night - a rib eye steak cooked to order with a free drink. It was served with chips and a salad garnish.

Comfortable and very pleasant staff. It was Mexican night and the meal was excellent and timely. My first draught beer was off, but was changed instantly with profuse apologies. We'll be back.

Fabulous! The most comfortable bed I've had in a hotel; variety of breakfast choices - staff very friendly, service with a smile and couldn't do enough for you. Wed steak night was excellent. I hope to go back next year for a biking break.

Lovely bar and restaurant with a pub feel. Service and food was well over expectation. We attended the Sunday night pub quiz and had the best time. Such a lovely atmosphere :) Highly recommend.

This was one of the best meals we've had in a while. The queenies (local Manx scallop things) were great! The lamb and fish and chips were phenomenal. Really good service and not super expensive. Highly recommended!!

This is somwhere between good pub and restaurant. Average does not do it justice but it's not really 'very good'. Sounds rough? pity - read on. Actually I quite enjoyed my meal, the food was tasty and well prepared. It lacked a bit of atmosphere and the layout is not conducive to a 'fabulous' experience. There are better tables than...

HQ bar is well located just off the Promenade and well worth a visit for eating or drink. The bar manager is friendly and helpful and the beers are good.
