I really like this restaurant- great parking available and a nice village setting. The staff are always helpful and interested in ones experience. The menu has something for everyone and a super wine list- the Chablis is recommended. The champagne menu is also wonderful. The salmon and moneybags starters are super- nicely presented and good flavours. The lamb and venison... More

Booked for a Sunday lunch for four people, excellent choice on menu. The food was very good however the service was disappointing. On serving the main course three meals were brought out complete. The fourth lunch plate came minus vegetables and gravy a long wait then followed to receive the vegetables a further wait for the gravy. Desserts were also... More

We were very much looking forward to our stay at the GT as it was a Birthday treat. On arrival we were put in room 11 which could've done with a lick of paint and 3 blown bulbs. We went down for dinner at 8pm and was promptly shown to our table where we sat for 20mins. Eventually we were... More

It is 2013 since my last visit here as after a poor experience and so many good places to eat we have given it a wide berth. Last night we tried again and although it was much better, it is still not without issues. The starters (fish soup £8.75) and crab lasagne (£10.95) were first rate - but at those... More

Long established Restaurant which we have visited a dozen times or more because of the past high standard and quality of service and , of course, the food . This time it fell well short of all expectations . Unwelcoming atmosphere , scant service , overpriced and generally dull . Why ? No idea , but there is a lot... More

I'm really sorry to hear that your recent visit did not match your previous experiences with us. Unfortunately you don't mention when you dined which would have helped me investigate why the atmosphere and service didn't live up to our usual standard. I can only apologise sincerely and hope it won't deter you from trying us again and in the... More
