Exactly what it said on the tin, the food was tasty and there was a fair selection. The service was poor and has put me off returning.

Understaffed restaurant, polite but inexperienced waiter and disappointing food.

No pastry was served with the steak pies... So in effect, it was really stew and chips. We queried this - and only after everyone had finished their meal, were we informed that the pastry was now ready and would we like it?! The gammon was tough, no one asked to refresh our drinks, we had to ask for butter for the rolls... And who has ever heard of strawberries being served in a green salad?!

Neither I, nor any of my 7 co-diners, will be eating at Ellersly House Restaurant any time in the near future.

The new chef has completely revamped the menu and what a difference it has made. The Beef Cheek and Lamb Shank are absolutely delicious. The new desserts, especially the soufflé, are guaranteed to send my diet out of the window. Could maybe do with something on the menu for those of us who could lose a few pounds in the new year.

I stay in the hotel most weeks and regularly eat in the restaurant. Having been away for 3 weeks I was told there was a new chef and new menu so was looking forward to trying it out. I can't wait to go back tomorrow. The beef cheeks were amazing, so succulent. Words can't do them justice. You may see a few more updates in the next few weeks!!

The service is what really stands out. The food is ok just like the atmosphere (if any). A refurbishment is on its way and that is not a minute too late. It is located in a quiet area and with the bus down the road you are in no time in the city centre.
