What an excellent birthday celebration from start to finish. We were greeted with smiles and efficient service in the hotel bar whilst ordering drinks and choosing our meals. We were definitely not disappointed with our choices.....for starters, we ordered Seafood Chowder, Soup of the Day and The Queenies, all absolutely superb. For mains, we chose the Meat Pie and the Meat of the Day (haunch of Venison), again all absolutely stunning. We ordered wine to match each course, each one recommended by the waiter (who we suspect was the manager), excellent recommendations. Unfortunately, we didn't manage dessert as the portions of the starters and mains were so big!!
Full to brimming, we retired to the bar for an after dinner tipple on the comfy sofas, excellent knowledge on the large whiskey selection from the bar maid.
We didn't stay at the hotel, we only ate there (and popped in for drinks throughout the week as we were staying locally) so we cannot comment on the accommodation etc; however, for food and drinks, the place was superb. There is also a village bar adjacent to the hotel bar with a bit more of a casual feel. If you are in the area, we definitely recommend calling in.
