This visit was for a family birthday and having been before there were high expectations however this time was a poor let down. The restaurant was empty and we assumed this was because we were early but it did not change yet most places on a weekend are full. Staff were very nice when they could be found but you... More

Restaurant and staff pleasant but food disappointing. The roast beef was far too thick and difficult to cut, roast potatoes not fresh and beans undercooked ,Yorkshire pudding also not fresh and overcooked!! Also partner not happy to have his meal with a table of ladies from the spa in their dressing gowns!!! Would not return!

Food was quite good but nothing amazing. Service was lacking, attention to detail poor. We had to keep flagging down staff for drinks, bread which surely we should have been given before our starter not between starter & mains. Quite some wait between starter & mains. I had belly pork & mashed potatoes both of which were quite dry. Wouldn't... More

Rare but fabulous as this is often a problem. There were other elderly and... More

Staff were very accommodating and genuine. Food was nice, but there was little atmosphere and due to some large noisy tables, not the romantic evening hoped for. If you are staying at the hotel, it is worth eating here, but I won't be making a special trip again

Not wanting to be bothered to go out of the hotel during an overnight stay we ate here. We found the "Fine Dining - Anise Restaurant" limited in the menu so chose this instead. The staff were very friendly and service acceptable (as they automatically add on a service charge). I had the smoked haddock with ham and poached egg... More

We came here for lunch after staying the night in the hotel. Our standards were high after a great breakfast here, but the lunch was even better! The 2 course menu for £14.95 was excellent value. We both had teh soup; butternut squash to start which was thick and tasty and a generous portion. For main we had the chicken... More
