The room was well laid out but the drinks table by the entrance caused a bit of a blockage in the area. Good service and buffet food okay, I think the sandwiches should be separate for meats and non meat,but all was labelled.

Good meal but could be so much better, pate followed by roast beef and coffee. Starter OK but main was poor with undercooked beef and somewhat touch, thankfully coffee was hot.

Had a reasonable meal. Think it could have been hotter and just a bit more on the plate for the price.
