A group of 8 of us went here Sunday 12th March for a birthday meal. Very pleased with decor. Light and spacious too. Service was good and staff friendly. Starters were lovely especially the grilled halloumi skewers and the Thai fishcake with noodles. Main courses were good, we had Sunday lunch; roast beef, lamb and chicken,generous portions but roast potatoes...

Hotel room was very nice and cosy, and our room had recently been refurbished, only niggle was that a couple of the bulbs had gone in the bathroom and needed replacing. The room that we had originally chosen wasn't available and we were upgraded to a suite. Didn't think it was big enough to be classed as a suite though,...

As a priest I often attend the meal or buffet after a funeral. This was one such occasion, the room had a balcony and large windows with a very nice out look, the bar was close by and the room spacious accommodating everyone comfortably. It was set out with large round tables. The buffet, whilst a simple affair was plentiful...

This is the second time I have been with friends for lunch and found it to be excellent. Good quality food, very good service, comfortable seating, and pleasant lounge to relax in with coffee after a very filling meal.

Stayed twice now and found both rooms to be quiet, spacious and comfortable. I would struggle to fault this place as somewhere to stop over. If staying in Newtown, you couldn't find a much better location. Breakfast selection isn't huge, however good quality.

This was our first ever experience of eating out on Christmas day for our party of 10. 2 of our party have eaten out several times over the years on Christmas day. We had pre ordered and paid, which was great, no worrying about sorting out a bill after. The table was really nicely presented, good space around the table...

We attended one of the Xmas party nights here. We all had a fantastic night. Room was decorated nicely. Food was nice, served quickly and hot ! I thought the staff all worked hard to serve such a large amount of people. Band was also excellent. We will definatley be back again.

We had a table booked for a "Christmas Party Night'. We were asked to be there for 7.30. The room was set out like a school canteen other than a few round tables. The starters were served by some very young girls and fair play they were doing their best as there were 2 very official looking ladies with clipboards....
