    The ambience is quiet and comfortable but the food did not meet our expectations. The Prawn appetizer was not prawns but actually tiny shrimps which was a bit disappointing. The salad was fresh but the Lamb Shank was a very small portion with too much fat. Again, the red wine had not been stored properly and was tto warm to drink. I had to put a few ice cubes in the glass to fix that problem.

    Food was lousy, do not ever book the room/dinner package, they don't even let you pick from the main menu and the choices are very limited. Food was bland and cold.

    Service was outstanding, had the chowder soup which was a bit to thick for me , had another starter as my main because there wasn’t much of a choice in the main section, but it was gorgeous. And we were surprised with a selection of desserts as it was a joint birthday celebration , we were really touched by the gesture.

    I thought the service was excellent and friendly throughout. I felt a genuine human warmth that went far beyond anything you can learn from a process manual. I thoroughly enjoyed my first ever afternoon tea and would recommend it highly - compliments to the chef. The vegetarian korma was quite poor but everything else was first class. My room (216) was very comfortable but the traffic noise from street from 5.00 AM means you don’t get a full night’s sleep

    Food was really good and value for money but unfortunately the service was not great we understand there was a few trainees on the floor at the time. We would have liked to order another drink and desert but had to leave as we were doing to a show. We tried to get the staffs attention but the 3 of them were very focused on clearing a table.

    The food was good. Cooked and presented well however as seems to be the norm with modern dining if you don’t want to leave still feeling hungry you’ll have to add sides. I had 3 courses came home and ate a load of munchies.

    Overall, it was a nice experience. Staff were good, although busy so sometimes found it hard to get their attention for drinks. My one feedback was that the fillet steak was like chewing rubber. It was cooked medium rare, which was fine but whatever they did to prep it, ruined it. Big shame considering this was the only main course meat on the tasting menu and it was shared between 2 people, per the style of the menu.

    Everything was lovely, had picked here as going to Show in Everyman, while the relaxed vibe is lovely, just to be conscious of people rushing to get seats! More our fault than the Hotel! Will definitely be back.

    On a pricey meal you would expect the chips to be hand made and cut not frozen pre-fried ones.

    I went there with my husband for my birthday. It was amazing. The bar staff were so lovely to me. One of the girls in the bar has a tattoo on her hand she was the most beautiful person ever. She helped me going up the stairs and everything. Ian in the bar is very funny. We had a lovely breakfast this morning with Lorraine. She couldn’t have been nicer. One thing I would say is that there are a lot of steps throughout the hotel and no ramps. That being said I would definitely go back to this hotel. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
