It was adequate. Food was good, but not exceptional. Service as very slow although the majority of staff were friendly and helpful. The hotel is, it must be stated, showing signs of wear and tear. Not wonderful, but as stated it is adequate.

Sorry "Annie B" that your recent visit proved disappointing and that you did not enjoy your meal. We do make a fresh Tomato sauce, perhaps too thin on this occasion. The huge soup plate is in fact sold and described as a "Pasta Bowl". However we do take on board your point of view. Thank you very much for responding... More

We tend to go here if wanting some where nice to eat if just as a couple. Always find staff friendly and nice and cosy inside. A good choice of food, but on this occasion a little disappointing as the portions smaller than before, my wife who often struggles to finish a starter and main course, found room for dessert....
