My wife and I ate here on Valentines evening. We found all the food very good. Everything was tasty and we weren't kept waiting long despite it being quite busy. The service was excellent and drinks selection great. Will return.

Great food and service. Wheelchair accessible. Vegetarian options and selection of real ales too. Reserve a table in advance. Book a table near the back as the pub part of the Hotel gets very busy and quite noisy.

Can't fault this place. We were staying while attending a funeral so booked late and got last room, a 'mini double'. Small but perfectly adequate. Bed fabulously comfortable, great shower. All necessary facilities. The staff were very friendly, location is good and central. Cooked breakfast was excellent. Full marks!
