We ate here one night while staying at the hotel. We booked a table, a good move as it turned out as they were very busy.

Came here for dinner on the evidence of reviews. We ordered steak pie and a child's burger. The steak pie tasted very good with plenty of meat. The issue we had is that the pie was cold on 2 plates inside (the plates were cold) and was sent back. Was replaced but then when it came back one was still... More
