As we entered I really had low expectations, the huge picture of the food as you enter did not bode well, nor did the service which was slow and the staff, although nice were not that well trained. The best bit was asking what the...More

Ate in the conservatory here 'on spec' when staying one night nearby. The restaurant was light and airy; food excellent; beer good; and staff were friendly and attentive without being intrusive.

We've eaten here many times and the food quality and friendly service never seems to vary. Dining in the hotel's conservatory is pleasant. Definitely recommended

Thanks for this great feedback. It means all the more when it comes from a returning customer.

The food was lovely! the staff are always friendly and inviting. I would recommend booking in advance because they are very popular, but also they will always try to accommodate people without bookings.
