My parents stayed here on a Saturday night and we joined them for dinner in the restaurant.
The public rooms are smart and the gardens and location pretty. Ideal for the wedding which was in full swing throughout the evening. The service was maybe a little slow as a result, but staff were friendly and helpful.
The restaurant has quite a formal feel to it and the menu sounded interesting, however, the food when it arrived was uniformly disappointing. My husbands steak and kidney pie was a shallow dish of stew with a puff pastry shell balanced on top, a few cold chips and overcooked veg. My daughter ordered crab linguine which was cooked just right except sugar had clearly been added, instead of salt. To be fair, another meal was provided quickly for which we were not charged. Overall for the price we paid, the food was very ordinary. Happily my parents reported that breakfast was much better.
Although we were not staying, I did have a quick look at my parent's suite. The loud animal prints and mega sized TV may not be to everyones taste, but the room was a good size and well equipped. Encasing the bed in a rickety four poster frame, however, only makes it difficult to get in and out in the middle on the night without damaging your shins!
This is a good hotel and obviously popular with parties and weddings, but with so many excellent restaurants/gastropubs in the locality, they really need to up the standards in the restaurant.
