“Sunday lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2012

We have eaten Sunday lunch in the The Dinning Room on 2 seperate occassions. Both times the food was excellent. We couldn't praise the staff highly enough. Most importantly excellent value for money.

“Very good food, excellent service and great value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2012

We had dinner here Saturday evening (4 adults and 4 children) and can't praise the staff highly enough for the way they looked after us.

The menu isn't massive but there is something for everyone (steaks, pasta, fish, vegetarian etc) and it's all well cooked and well presented.

The wine menu is relatively small but offers a nice selection of wines which are sensibly priced.

They will do the "nuggets and chips" type food for kids if you want them to but they offer half portions of all the menu dishes which is great and the kids loved their meals, so much so my son asked for more. (Might be time to start getting him adult portions!!)

Overall we were very pleased with the quality of food, quality of service, value for money and the ambience of the restaurant overall.

I would recommend it to anyone looking for a good meal in a quality restaurant.
