“Good food and service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 March 2014

Stopped in here for Sunday lunch while visiting the town, as the menu looked very appealing. The bar area (olde worlde with an open fire) was very busy, with lots of families eating. I note they allow dogs in the section near the beer garden which is nice.

We ate in the restaurant, which was more modern in style and very comfortable. The menu is a little hard to follow as starters, fish and game are all lumped together. It's nice to see good game (and it was) on the menu, but it sat a little awkwardly with 'buckets' of fried food and chips in the next section.

All three of us had the Sunday roast, which came with a complimentary drink and some bread and oil as an aperitif.

The portions were generous, and the beef was cooked to perfection and very flavourful. The half pheasant was also very good, but seemed to be lacking its breast, which is a shame, as it is the meatiest part of the bird. The roasts came with enormous fluffy Yorkshires and loads of potatoes (roast and mashed, the latter being deliciously buttery), but the portion of veg for three looked very skimpy.

Starters and puddings were all good - the smoked salmon and prawns was a work of art, and sticky toffee pudding was delicious.

Overall, one to revisit.

“Great food and atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2014 via mobile

We sat in the bar area and 8 of us had a lovely lunch last Saturday. The lamb in particular was delicious. The staff were very welcoming towards our baby and provided a highchair.

This was the third place we had tried to get into without a booking, not sure why it wasn't as busy, but I'm very glad we stumbled upon it.

“This chef knows what he is doing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2014

Our arrival was preceded by a call from James on the desk to ask if we would like to reserve a table for dinner because it was proving to be a busy time for them. This is the kind of initiative I like. Not pushy, just good and thoughtful service, and to the benefit of his employer. The meal was utterly delicious. I had Tiger Prawns to start, and my wife enjoyed a Smoked Salmon medley, both excellent. Our mains of Cod and Chicken (two separate dishes) were truly excellent, beautifully cooked and presented. The service was excellent too - very attentive, professional and helpful. All in all this is a fine place for dinner, and the room rates in the hotel are very reasonable too. Highly recommended.
