We expected much better service at this restaurant but were sadly disappointed. No one greeted us or took our coats. We were told when we asked that coats would be taken later when we ordered. They were never taken. The staff are not trained in good service. We had to ask for a wine list, it was not offered. Eventually the wine was plonked on the table. The food was good. We had to ask for a coffee. It was not offered. The table was shoved in a corner and despite it being Valentine's night we were next to a rowdy group who fortunately did not stay too long. There was just no classiness about the place at all despite it being one of the most expensive Valentine deals in the area. We won't be returning.

I unfortunately chose the restaurant at this hotel for a Sunday Lunch for my Wife , myself and my sister in law who is in a wheelchair and her partner, on arrival they had no record of our booking that was made over the phone a week before???? We were wedged into a corner near the fireplace which meant that we were sat nearly out of the dining room and in the bar .we asked a young women who seemed to be running operations if we could move to receive a rude Fully booked
The attitude of the staff is rude and indifferent , with other restaurants in the area offering fantastic meals with atmosphere and 'bonne amie' I can't understand were they're coming from won't be coming back

We were given a meal voucher by a family member to eat here. This was the first time we had been, and will definitely be the last.
We were the only customers which is not surprising.
The waitress was indifferent to the point of rudeness, the food was less than average, and the atmosphere was oppressive.
Yuk.
