Disappointed last visit but this time all was very good. I had a the pate starter which was good but the toast could have been better. We both had the roast beef main course which was excellent. The portions were generous so could not manage a sweet. Which certainly be back on the list of our places to visit.

We were staying at The Garrison Hotel and wanted something convenient. There was a good choice and the food was well cooked. The staff were great and it was not expensive. Basically it ticked all the boxes.

What a great night we had on their 1960s night the atmosphere was great and the food even better. I had the leek and potato soup which outshone any I have had in some top hotels, others had the prawn salad with loads of prawns. My fish pie was also loaded with prawns as well as salmon and other fish.... More

Surprised by how good this restaurant was, I was staying at the adjoining hotel and just popped in for a bite to eat and ended up staying for some time. It was busy when I first arrived due to the football match close by, but it soon cleared and they had plenty of friendly staff on. Great choice of food... More

My visit was really nice good food at a very affordable price. The service was also good from the quality of the food to the bar staff. I would most definitely recommend this either for a family or a romantic stay.

Brilliant food, and everything I said earlier. Sometimes having a minimum requirement for letters used is annoying.

After telling the waiting staff I was allergic to peppers and chillies, I was served potato skins with bell peppers on the salad and chilli sauce on the side. When I pointed out I had stated my allergy I was told someone else must have my salad. The food was taken away and replaced, but there was no apology or... More
