Stayed here with three friends for a two day golf break. Two rounds of golf plus dinner bed and breakfast for £99 which was very good value. The dinner menu seemed a little pretentious but the food turned out to be pretty good. Breakfast was also very good. The staff are all excellent and the room was good, clean and air conditioned which was very welcome since we were there on the hottest two days of the year so far! The golf course is very good despite being a little parched (like many others) due to the hot weather.
One negative: the bar prices are outrageously high (as are the wine list prices). We had after-dinner drinks comprising a glass of red wine, a gin and tonic, a JD and coke and a plain coke all of which amounted to more than £28! Needless to say, we only had one round despite sitting in the bar for a couple of hours. The patio adjacent to the golf course is a pleasant location for a snack lunch but see above re bar prices. The bar menu is also expensive - £12 for ham, egg and chips, £12.50 for a burger etc.
We all agreed that we would come again because we like the golf course but would bring a bottle of two and have drinks in the room next time or visit the local pub.
