Fantastic menu. I loved it. Reasonably priced and such varied, well thought out exciting choices. As it was so reasonably priced, I opted for the bad boy Australian steak dish. Yum. Everything was going really well up to this point. Then I went and ordered my food. Cue the, no exaggeration, half hour queue to get to the bar. They...

Recently stayed at fairway whilst on buisness, slightly unsure if I was unlucky or not. On arrival met with a charming smiling reception and given my keys no problem. On entering my rom it was obvious to see it could have had a lick of paint and some remedial work, however it was clean. Looked out window!! Fabulous view of...

We've stayed here every year when visiting family for around 9 years and always booked the Fairway even though there were cheaper competitiors because we loved the staff, the rooms and the food. Unfortunately, our most recent stay this weekend will be our last. The lady on reception was new and unqualified, it was as if she'd had half a...

Stayed for one night with my daughter in a twin room. Very clean room and of a good size. Comfortable beds. Nice and quiet. No noise from the bar/restaurant. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Good value for money. Would stay here again.

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...
