We did go here for a meal a eighteen months ago and wrote a review to say how bad the food and service was and the bar itself was slightly weird in that it had dirty Christmas decorations still hanging up. We vowed not to return.
We revisited the area in October and was stuck for somewhere to stay and through necessity decided to give it a look just for accommodation. The room we were shown looked very comfortable and cosy so we decided to stay. Time was getting on, so reluctantly, we decided to give the food another try.
The menu wasn't vast but it was varied. We chose 2 courses each (we each chose differently). I was still not happy about being there but when we had finished the 2 courses I had totally changed my mind. The food was really delicious and we both decided to order desserts as well, which again were really lovely.
The next day at breakfast, (which by the way was excellent) we spoke to the new owner (who had only taken over 3 weeks before) and she told us the changes she had made - including a new chef and new staff and the removal of Christmas decorations which had been there for 15 years without being taken down!!! There were also plans to refurbish the rooms and other improvements were also on the cards.
We would have no hesitation in staying there in the future and in fact would look forward to it. I'm sure with the planned improvements in place it would be even better.
