Decided to go out for a 'nice' meal as opposed to the regular curry/chinese etc and this was recommended by my brother.
There were so many interesting things on the menu I couldn't make up my mind so opted for the carvery - had half a cow and pig on my plate before I knew it and the chef even cut off some beef fat and pork crackling when I asked for it.
Good choice of vegetables and sauces too. Everything was piping hot so still hot when I reached the table!
Hanging my nose over the desserts as I went passed - the chef smiled and said 'you'll have to eat your tea first' which gave me a giggle - I love happy people. he was right though, I did manage to eat the meal but unfortunately did not have room for the scrummy looking puds - will definitely go back again and try to leave more room.
Bar and catering staff were all very attentive and we were well looked after.
Just a note - there was also a wedding going on in the hotel but we were not disturbed by any noise or people wandering around - great relaxing atmosphere.
