Really nice atmosphere and delicious food. Quite pricey but a great choice for a special meal. The staff were very friendly and even made space for my 10 week old daughter in her pram.

Roughly around £55 but dependant on what dish you choose.
Hi, we will be staying with you in September this year. Can you advise if the Hotel has a bar in it serving alcoholic drinks? If not, what is the closest bar/pub to the hotel that you would recommend? Also, do the standard Kind size bed rooms have fridges in them? Thank you.
