I am a regular customer of the carvery lunch and the evening bar menu option at the Grand Hotel. I was prompted to write after reading a most unjust review on this site.
The carvery is a very consistent source of high quality and tasty food. Their soup is legendary, always thick and tasty. The chef's special for about é7 is the best value around and can be anything from stroganoff, lasange, turkey a la king, curry and many other options, usually something with great flavour. The joint is usually very good and my wife has often given out about the portions being too large which she finds off putting (I don't).
The evening bar menu is fresh and varied. The black pudding on a bed of mash is recommended and I have often said that there is no need to look for fillet steak at the Grand as their sirlion is always tender and tasty.
The service is friendly and efficient as you would expect from a family run hotel.
