The food was really nice, if a little expensive and not many choices. But the quality was superb. The breakfast was really nice. Although lacking yogurt. A malt Easter bunny was a lovely touch.

Had both our evening meals here. Service excellent, and food likewise. We enjoyed our meal so much on 1st night that we had exactly the same choice the following evening. The chicken and hake from the set menu were delicious.
