This is a lovely place for lunch. Staff are great, Keith always looks after us well.

Food is good and the athmosphere is lively.

Would recommend pre booking order where possible, especially on Fridays.

I visited this restaurant without a booking, early evening on Easter Sunday. Very welcoming and helpful staff As I had a train to catch I stuck with the roast lamb special - well presented, plenty of flavour, and a good sized portion. Washed down with a sensibly priced pint. to reach the accessible toilets one has to go through hotel reception, but this is only a minor issue and facilities are way above average. I will certainly return.

Hi Ed0765,

Thanks for visiting the McGettigans Cookhouse and Bar for your quick supper recently.
Glad you enjoyed the lamb, sensibly priced pint and of course the welcoming friendly team. While toilet facilities are available in the reception lobby, there are also newly refurbished toilet facilities available in the cookhouse.
I hope that we can welcome you back soon whether before a train journey or just for pleasure.
Thanks again for posting your review
Kind Regards
Peter B
