The meals was very good, the service was excellent.. Marcel the barman went out of his way to make our visit well worth it. The best service I have had in a hotel in a long time.

We stopped for dinner in deteriorating weather and so glad we did. Wholesome food, good beer and wine and nice service. Just the job on a stormy night. The liver and bacon was food for the soul!

Went there with my 4 kids. Very welcoming great staff. We're under the pump with Easter but all good. Though it was a nice environment too.
