As it was our Wedding Anniversary, we decided to push the boat out and have a better class (we hoped) Sunday lunch somewhere nice, and I remembered this Hotel from many years ago as having a nice view....so decided to enquire if Sunday lunch was available to non residents just passing.....it was , at £17.50 a head. I baulked at this, being a tight wad, but well, it was our anniversary, so decided to go for it, and hopefully score some brownie points.
Very glad I did, and definitely scored brownie points ! The price was for FIVE courses. We got a (modestly priced) drink at the bar, having booked for lunch, and were advised that we had until 2 PM to take our table, so would we like to enjoy our drinks on the sun terrace......which we duly did. Amazing view, attentive service from the waiting staff, we loved it.
Eventually ambled in to eat, and the food was superb, amongst the best I can remember in this country. Courteous, helpful staff, reataurant that was nice and cool, plenty of space between tables, and sensational food. We had our coffess (with cream) back on the sun terrace....and really didn't want to go home !
ALL the staff we came into contact with were helpfullness itself....the icing on the cake for me was a "Happy Anniversary" card on the table as we sat for lunch, a lovely touch I thought.
Will definitely be back for more. I cant wait.
I see there are a few awful reviews on here about the Hotel, but notice that they are rather historic now. Would seem to me the management have taken note of concerns, and addressed the relevant areas.
Note also by having the full blowout for lunch, it also entitles you to a swim in the indoor pool....suggest you swim before you eat, unless you want to impersonate a sumbmarine !
Thanks to all for a splendid few hours which felt like we were on holiday.
