For our 2nd and last night meals we had at the White House Bar and Bistro. Good selection of foods and drinks. Staff attentive, able to mix and match additions with main meal, due to dietary requirements.

We stopped in for a quick lunch and it was a little mixed. The soup of the day was very good but the sandwich was average as the bread didn't seem fresh. Service was good and friendly.

The fish sharing plate was tasty. The mains were so so. Cesar salad was good, but very heavy on the dressing. The fish and chips - fish was delish, the chips, too starchy in the centre. Not crisp. But the sharing plate was really good....More
