This Hotel has 2 Rosettes from the AA for its Meals.So we had a high expectation of the food there. sadly it did not live up to its billing. The positives are that the Staff are very good, but the chef I did not meet.
I had a ale steak pie and chips. The pastry was very thin and so after been cooked( I suspect in a microwave) was very hard and uncuttable. The chips were not chips but very very thin french fries that you would expect at a fast food outlet.2nd night sausages ans mash, How can you get excited about that.Our room was clean and had an ensuite. however the wash basin was not in the ensuite but in the room. I had beem promised an executive room. The shower over the bath had to be seen to be believed.We were over the main entrance and bar and was a bit noisy. Also had a small double bed. When I complained I was told I had a view of the small garden. The menu is fixed and is the same every night. It is also very difficult to get too. The food did not live up to the expectation of 2 rosettes.In fact the Little Chef on the A38 2 miles away served better food and the service was excellent. The food is expensive and for what you get is very over priced. The hotel seems stuck in a 60's time warp. Strangely enough all the staff seem to be new, Would I visit again no chance. I have complained to the hotel but have not yet received any response.
