Restaurant was always packed. Food was good with generous portions. It's known for its carvery although vegetarians are catered for as well.

Uninspiring menu, best suited to a town pub. Carvery meat seemed to have been kept longer than was good for it, or there was burger or steak The service was -at best- casual. Recommend you stay in the hotel but dine elsewhere.

Not sure but I think you can have a good amount of good quality food for a reasonable price and it is worth it.
