A table for seven (which unexpectedly became eight, with no problem reassurances from staff, on the day) was booked in advance and our needs were accommodated without any problems. The weather was sunny and warm and we sat outside, enjoying the beautiful surroundings.
Drinks orders were taken by a very pleasant, smiley waitress who was happy to chat and explain the menu choices. Although a fairly limited choice was offered (no printed menu provided), our table had the range offered between us: chicken wrapped in bacon (could have had it filled with cheese if we had wanted) and served with a mushroom sauce in a separate individual jug (very flavoursome and had a hint of alcohol in it), steaks (an 8oz was ordered and cooked well) and roast beef with a large portion of yorkshire pudding and a rich gravy. Each plate was ready portioned with a selection of vegetables which were cooked al-dente and had minimal seasoning (preferred). An extra dish of vegetables was provided without asking.
No desserts were ordered, since we were all well-satisfied with the more than adequate portions of the main course.
A printed menu would have been preferred so that we could have considered the choices for each course in a more relaxed manner. However, the helpful, hospitable waitress more than compensated.
The cost for eight of us was £110 - ish which included drinks with the meal and which is acceptable for a meal of this type and standard.
We ate at the Glen Helen Hotel at the end of TT race week and this was a pleasant way to end our holiday on the island. As a point of interest, we walked off the effects of the meal in a beautiful glen accessed at the rear of the hotel.
We would go again on a future visit to the island.
