Don't always visit restaurants where we have not been before or had feedback - however on entering the pub/restaurant the ambiance and atmosphere made us feel in safe hands. Not that busy like a couple of places we had passed on the pleasant winters day...More

Don't quite know what to say about this review. Our pork steaks are 8oz and pretty much a standard size. We understand from the staff that were working at the time that your manner was particularly rude when you sent your meal back. Your food...More

So disappointed. Expected more for £145 per night (including breakfast) WiFi is also woeful. Booked here for 3 uncomfortable nights. Owner conveniently on holiday. No refunds policy on booking so, won't be spending any more cash on meals or drinks here. I would be surprised...More

We really enjoyed our meal. The food was nicely presented and of excellent quality. The pub and gardens were nicely kept. The restaurant/bar was not particularly busy and seemed to cater more for hotel residents rather than casual diners. Whilst there were no particular issues,...More
