We had starters, main course and dessert in the bar (Dan Buckley Bar) the food was delicious, a small wait because the food is cooked to order. But everything was delicious and piping hot. The staff were friendly and courteous, service was great. I would definitely recommend it.

If you want to be welcomed with smiles and an unfaltering willingness to help...
