The food was mostly very good at breakfast and at dinner. The fish and chips were just excellent. I wasn't too keen on the smoked turkey the other day however.

We visited the 1855 Restaurant firstly in July for my Birthday and had the worst experience ever both with service and the food. We were booked in for 7.30pm and were shown to our seats in a rather quiet restaurant, with no offer of a drinks menu until l asked, no offer of a wine menu and very large gaps between service. I also had to go to the bar to get top ups as we were waiting so long between courses. I also had to ask the waitress to clear a table that had been vacated an hour previously. The starters and my main were excellent however my fiancee's Spinach and Ricotta Tortellini was luke warm and was sent back. All in all we were in the restaurant for 2.5 hours. As she still hadn't received a replacement we left after speaking to the Duty Manager.

We ended up getting a second meal there free, however this time there was still a major issue with service. We again weren't offered a wine menu at all, we were not offered bread at all with our starters, mine was a Chowder, my fiancées was a fish dish. We had to ask for steak knives as the knives we were given to eat Rump of Lamb and steak were table knives without a serrated edge. We had to ask for a sweet menu and when we received our cheese boards, neither resembled each other. The food we had was good ( thanks chef's)however l won't be recommending or going to the restaurant again, possibly the worst, unprofessional service l have ever experienced in a hotel anywhere. I did recommend to the Manager that an experienced Maitre D' might help the service be more fluent, however it must have fallen on deaf ears.

Came here a while ago for the fish and chips groupon and it was pretty good. This time we came for the 2 course groupon special and it was fantastic.

For starters we had smoked haddock chowder and crayfish salad. Both were really good. Our mains were wild mushroom risotto in goats cheese and lamb with ratatouille and potato which were both excellent.

The service here is also very good. Get yourself a groupon and enjoy!

We went here recently for dinner as a birthday treat for my dad.
The restaurant is well set out with the tables not too close together and a nice relaxed atmosphere.
Not the biggest menu but still a nice choice to choose from. We all chose different - Haddock, meatball, lamb and chicken but we all agreed that all the dishes were cooked very well and were very tasty - nice and hot too!
The staff were very friendly and kept the drinks coming.
The only (possible) minus on the night was a rather loud party in the bar (which is next to the restaurant) but seeing as it was the first match of the season which SUFC won we didn't mind although I imagine some would. The Manager did go round the diners to apologise which was nice but they didn't stay too long anyway.
Quite pricey - especially the drinks - but good quality food.
Still on our list for special occasions.
