Good location just off M4 and good views across fields. Gardens needed attention making the setting look untidy. Nice feel when you go inside all be it look tired. Not the most friendly or well informed welcome I have ever had. Group on deal is rack rate so worth looking elsewhere for that "deal".
Room was nice but again seen better days. Our meal was disappointing. Fish dish very average and steak over cooked. (actually not asked how we wanted it cooked so come out well done!!) good wine list but no idea how to serve their most expensive red. Had to ask for decanter , which was chipped and dirty. Overall it's average at best. Your reputation is slipping, great potential, but needs a boost to recreate its past.
