Beautiful hotel in a lovely location, but my experience of the food in the restaurant was not one I would recommend. My daughter and I decided to have the steak and ale stew. The service was fast and the server very nice and polite. Delivered on a breadboard with the stew in a couldron type pot which made it impossible to cut up the meat and potatoes even if you could have got a knife through them. The potatoes were almost raw, and the meat was as tough as old boots, with lots of gristle. The flavour however was beautiful, so the bread and gravy were edible. Obviously the chef doesnt try the food before they send it out or he/she would have known it needed another half hours cooking at least. Worst meal I've had in a restaurant. A very dissapointing experience and not one I would want to repeat.
