Have visited the bar for cocktails many times over the last few years and cant help but feel sad that what was once an amazing experience is slowly being eroded by the management. What made it special were the bar men who were really enthusiastic about their job and would always suggest 'off menu' drinks tailored to your tastes. They... More
Limited, but good selection of meals Great ambience,excellent, but unobtrusive service. Enjoyed my fish pie, as did my husband. Our host ate his fish and chips with relish. The portions are not large,but more than adequate for a light lunch I will return!
At my request a group of 14 stayed in The Merchant Hotel to celebrate my birthday on 6 and 7 January and we had high expectations given its 5 star rating and the TV programme that showed the hotel in such a good way. It is with great disappointment that I say it did not live up to to those... More
Seated next door to the Great Room I can't imagine a more atmospheric venue to knock back cocktails and discuss days gone by. With the open fire and smoky smell it's a great venue BUT maybe just a touch too expensive to be justified. Still, an excellent a lot for a Dark and Stormy

The drinks and little bites, along with the very attentive staff make... More
Such a lovely place and experience. Went here for cocktails. The atmosphere is very relaxing and comfortable. Fabulous Christmas decorations and a huge fire. Delicious cocktails. Staff were exceptionally nice and helpful.
Stopped off here for early evening cocktails. The Christmas tree in the great room was fabulous -as was everything about this place -you can just imagine what it was like in the glory days. Cocktails were fabulous with complementary nibbles. Highly recommended.
