Called in for sunday lunch - 4 adults and 3 children. Could only describe the lunch as excellent. Good sized portions, well cooked and didn't wait long either. Also they've done up the indoor play area since I was last here. So very happy to see they've extended it, put in better seating and put a gate so children can't...

Arrived on a busy Friday night with very few tables available, but the service and food were excellent!! For pub food it was great, large portions and well cooked...I had a "Baby Mixed Grill" which was more than I was expecting and great value for money. Despite how busy the pub was, we were not kept waiting for our food....

Queues This hotel have not got it right, one queue for food, food and drink or just drink. Wow I was queued to the door for a children's fruit drink --20 mins.. The food was reasonable and to a fair quality but the queues makes this my first and last visit.

The suite itself is very good, and is well presented and perfect for lots of events. However, the expense of drinks is beyond expensive, its astronomical, suites like this do tend to charge more, but this place is really bad. To the point where they lost business from me that night. And if I have to go again, I will...

Lovely spacious rooms, food is lovely, staff were very helpful and check in was easy. The rooms are basic but very clean. This is my second stay here and I would stay here again. The food in the function room isn't as good as the food in the pub.
