We had another lovely meal at this great restaurant last night. The food is first class and the staff very friendly and helpful, I must say how impressed we are with all the staff, but must mention John, what a great waiter he is. We will be back. Can't comment on the actual hotel as we live very close.

Had 2 steaks from 2 for 1 menu. They were a decent size and cooked perfectly. Excellent value. Staff very pleasant and efficient. We ate in the bar but restaurant looked nicely refurbished too. Will definitely be back.
