There was a group of us in a coach party and we had pre booked lunch for us at the hotel so I cannot comment on the hotel other than the restaurant. All our arrangements were very easily made and carried out to our satisfaction. We had all pre chosen the salad lunch and there was quite a variety of salads to chose from on. Soon after being seated in the dining room our salads started to arrive, maybe too quickly! I selected the "Ploughmans salad" which actually was just a cheese salad and not the sort I would have expected. The pickle was placed on the table just before we had finished the salad and the sliced bread arrived as we finished the salad. I think the staff need a bit of organising and certainly some training as to when to bring the necessary condiments out of the kitchen. The salad itself was a little bland and just needs a bit of inventiveness to turn it into something far better and certainly the chef should realise that there is more to a "Ploughmans lunch" than cheese and I would have expected a bread role not Mothers Pride sliced. How disappointing.
