Six of us dined on Good Friday evening at R17 which is part of The University Arms Hotel. The menu is limited but good value and one can choose between two or three courses. The service was friendly and enthusiastic but a little slow. The...More

The food menu is small, and some would say the portions were too, but it is very beautifully presented. I can recommend the fillet steak with triple cooked chips. Drinks a little pricey. A two course menu is £23 per person. Seating is comfortable not...More
