I have eaten here several times before. A friend lives close by and we come here for significant celebrations. I have never had a bad meal here. This year my friend is away for Christmas and this was our chance to exchange presents. When we booked several weeks ago we were asked to choose our food from the Christmas menu. This was a little surprising but given the pressure on the kitchen staff at Christmas the request did not seem unreasonable.
When we arrived the hotel was beautifully decorated for Christmas. We sat by a lovely fire for a drink before lunch. We were swiftly taken to our table where we enjoyed a very good lunch. My vegetarian dish was very good. Someone in the kitchen had not forgotten that vegetarians enjoy good food. The roast potatoes were crispy and delicious.
The restaurant was very busy because of the Christmas festivities. However,given the number of people eating lunch the service was as good as anyone could expect in the circumstances. The staff did a magnificant job. The food we ordered in advance was correct and arrived at the table piping hot.
The hotel is in a prominent position and has the wow factor. I was impressed with the outside seating area which was situated within a pretty garden.
I am not a fan of Christmas food but this lunch was very good indeed.
