Lovely place, great staff. Had pre-theatre meal which was very reasonably priced. However selection of food was not exciting, and the Soup of the day & pork main meal lacked much flavour, but both were incredibly salty! My partner had the salmon mains which, whilst pleasant, lacked flavour. I personally would go somewhere else next time based on this experience.

The Spanish waiter was lovely. The only bad thing is that starters were too small but overall was a lovely night.

After a slow start of being attended to (taking a drinks order & initial greeting by a waiter) things moved along smoothly.
An apology by way of a complimentary glass of sparkling wine was generously offered. Our Romanian waiter was very attentive- he overheard us saying it was the birthday of one of our party and brought out a little surprise cake with a candle and decorated plate! How lovely! Food was very tasty and beautifully presented.
Hotel interior is unusual with lots of quirky pieces & toilets are clean & smart.

We had the set menu, which had some delicious meals on it, but when we asked to see the a la carte, the waiter found it difficult to comprehend. There was no Vegan option on the set menu - or on the desserts menu. The surroundings were comfortable, although the chairs were rather low for the height of the table and we had to ask for a cushion. We did not realise we had to pay for water until it was listed on the bill. We had to wait for an anxious length of time for our coats to be found at the end. We were not hurried through our meal and enjoyed a relaxed atmosphere throughout.

Lovely experience meeting with friends! Great atmosphere on a Friday night. Starter portion on the set menu was really small though -2 mouthfuls and gone. Could improve on that. Otherwise very tasty food and staff were brilliant and very accommodating. Would definitely come again!

We had a very enjoyable evening here. Food, service and atmosphere were outstanding. Good value.
The only problem was that the bar is so very popular that there is nowhere to sit and it's a bit noisy.

Service was appalling. Had to ask for menus and then wine menu. Sides didn't come out at same time as mains so main plates taken away. Salmon was cold.
Desert plates not cleared away after tea was delivered to table.
Marked as a BIRTHDAY meal but not recognised by the restaurant.

Not impressed!

The only criticism I have is that I realised afterwards I was overcharged as we had the set menu but this wasn’t reflected in the bill - a shame as everything else was wonderful and I should have checked

Set menu offers great value and I was able to add a course from the a la carte which was great. Set menu a limited selection but can recommend the beef for meat lovers.

The food could have done with a little extra seasoning and once salt added at the table flavours really came through. Only other small gripe was bread came after the starter but other than this a great experience and we were not rushed despite not ordering lots of drinks and staff were very attentive. Great location, buzzing bar and set menu is exceptional value.

Excellent lunch at this relaxed hotel restaurant , staff attentive and helpful , I prefer to have one person responsible for the table as this reduces the risk of being forgotten!
Food & wine were very good and lunch was very relaxed and un hurried
Would recommend for special occasions as not especially wallet friendly !!

Booked this for a quick lunch on New Year's Eve before heading off out....we stuck with the set meal options to keep costs down but the meal was excellent with great service in lovely surroundings! We will definitely be heading back for a longer experience and a taste of the 'a la carte' menu and possibly a stay at the hotel and a game of ten-pin bowling!!!!

Overall, great service with amicable food; however, it seems unfriendly for date nights with tables of two having the worst seats in the house. A vertical row of 2’s placed perpendicular to the kitchen door. Would not recommend for date or anniversary nights.
