We arrived on a Sunday so had to eat in the bar. Food expensive in a restaurant with tablecloths etc but very expensive for bar food. Meat well cooked but underseasoned. Chips soggy and few. No signs of vegetables on the menu. Disappointing

Dined here while staying at the hotel. The food was bistro style and was ok but not anything special. We went midweek and only 2 other diners so no atmosphere. We also thought it was expensive for what it was.

We stayed in the hotel so had an evening meal in the restaurant. I had the steak which was excellent and cooked to perfection. The service was superb. My only complaint was the room wasn't very warm

always good service and food of a high standard, not cheap but worth the price i think. You need to book as it is often busy.

I was served two crab cakes and a smattering of pea shoots for £6.00, when the spa day deal was supposed to include a snack luch.

Very upmarket for a hotel restaurant, good food, beautifully cooked with a wide choice of menu. Recommend for breakfast and evening meal. Can either have the set menu which is excellent value or the a la carte, also excellent wine list.
