Visited here on a family holiday as it was close to our cottage. Barrack chicken was very tasty and very large as well. Tiramisu cheesecake was delicious as well. Staff were friendly and helpful.

I stayed in the hotel for one night and opted to each in the hotel restaurant which did not disappoint. The food and service were fantastic.

Others at the table had a vegetarian spinach and... More

The 2 course fixed price menu offered a good choice for everyone and was good value. Staff were incredibly friendly, especially Laura, but service was a little chaotic 😀
