Large portions served here. I had the Balmoral chicken and the other half had lasagne, then had lovely bailey's cheesecake for pudding. Very friendly staff, who provide a fantastic service. Recommend this if you're in the area.

Very cute older restaurant, lovely setting. I had the steak and ale pie and it was so good, the meat so tender. My husband had a hamburger, which he said was good. I also had the sticky toffee pudding, yummers! The staff was really friendly too.

The staff was amazing and the hotel is very cosy. We just spend there one night but for sure we'll come back. The restaurant is one of the best in the city and they use to have live music. The hotel have 4 rooms so it's very personal.

Spent a night here whilst attending a nearby function. New owners are trying to improve the place, but they have a way to go still. Rooms still need attention and although the heating was on initially, it goes off early on a time switch resulting in quite a cold room.En suite toilet with shower fairly good and modern. All very...

FANTASTIC food......it really looks a little,,,, 'eclectic', but the staff are so very friendly and the food, is truely homemade. It does take a little longer, but you can tell by the quality and how piping hot the food is when it arrives just how much care has been taken. We live locally and stable our horses close by ,...

Service was top notch and the place is looking very nice since the refurbishment. Starter (stuffed mushroom) was absolutely fantastic, but the main (gourmet burger) was a tad dry and lacked something....not sure what it was, but it wasn't there. The chips were also very cold. But apart from the burger and chips, everything was braw! Only thing I would... More
