We were given dinner, bed and breakfast by my sister as a Christmas present and it was such a treat. The food was really good, the chef was new and clearly making changes but for the better I think. The trouble is, is that it does need a bit of refinement, the service needs to be a bit more on the ball. The chef is clearly trying to make the restaurant more fine dining but the staff need to be trained to be more knowledgeable about the food, maybe introduce each dish and for the cheese course to tell us what the cheeses were. The restaurant wasn't open yet when we visited so we had dinner in the bistro. The menu was divided into two, one side bistro/pub fare and the other side fine dining dishes. I would say that if you ordered from the bistro side then the dishes were hearty, like my steak and chips with onion rings. But if you ordered from the fine dining menu the portions were a bit on the small side, more befitting of a tasting menu as opposed to full dishes of their own right. But having said this, the food was very tasty and gave us an insight as to the potential of the restaurant.
The rooms unfortunately were tired and needed updating. We had an avocado green bathroom suite in our ensuite and the electric shower was not great but having said that we were comfortable enough. The breakfast was good but note finishes at 9.30am so no lie in if you want your brekkie!
