    The food was very disappointing, it used to be much better. Same applies to the pints of Guinness, used to be much better poured.

    When we were seated it was apparent immediately that the staff were stressed, not sure if it was because it was a Bank Holiday or what, there was a lot of rushing about and little time for the customers. We started with the pate and the chowder. the pate was next to tasteless and the chowder was very watery, can't say it was unpleasant, but it wasn't right. Next we went for the fish and chips and the steak. The steak came with frozen carrots and two shriveled greenish potatoes. Bad veg apart, the steak, although cooked okay was so fatty my wife returned it. She was offered the fish and chips, but after looking at my dish opted for just some chips instead. I had the fish and chips, the chips were the best part of this meal, as the batter on the fish was thin and full of oil, not very pleasant. We ordered two of the desserts on offer, I cannot give a review because after waiting for nearly three quarters of an hour, we gave up and left. We did mention it on the way out, and got a reply of, 'really, sorry about that!' Very disappointing. We had a reservation to dine in the Cobblers Bar, the following night, needless to say, we cancelled that.

    We had visited the restaurant some years ago and chose to re-visit on a busy New Years Eve. It was busy with a good atmosphere and staff were attentive. Food was very good - good selection, well prepared and tasty. Will certainly visit again.

    Disappointing experience, food was very basic for price charged. Service was ad hoc definitely no attention to detail or attention to customer, just hoped a server would eventually pass out table so we could order etc. No sense that we were being looked after. Some items on menu just not available on the day, turkey was rubbery, veg offering very basic and presentation of main, lacked any enthusiasm.

    Didn’t have our reservation, tried to move us to a busy sister restaurant in the same hotel where a noisy children’s party was going on. Then in a drafty table near the front door. Eventually sat us at a decent table. This for a reservation made a month earlier. Service very inconsistent, some wait staff knew their craft, others seemed clueless. Food was good, however, especially the mussels.

    The meal in general was tasteless. Starters: black pudding sitting on top of burned toast (dreadful). Turkey and ham not what is usually served up. As for the stuffing looked like a bar of soap. Dessert : ice cream was fine but the apples were so hard in tart we could not eat it. Very disappointing overall as we had dined there before and we returned to stay in the Wyatt because of the food.

    A relatively nice setting but very disorganised. Booked the previous night online, and it was a special evening as we were celebrating our wedding anniversary, but when we arrived staff said they had no notification and it seemed like an inconvenience. Got a table but everything seemed a little disorganised and not joined-up. Four different people serviced our table during the meal which was a bit disconcerting as there was no sense of comfort built up with the server. Food was okay - nothing special and there was no real sense that staff were bothered whether one had a good time or not.
