Stayed at the Best Western of which this is the restaurant. The choice is good and Maria P was first class. This is a hotel restaurant so you aren't going to get bags of atmosphere but I would east there again.

We booked in for an early dinner, the waitress was welcoming and we were happy with the table that we choose. My husband ordered the soup of the day and had to send it back as it was cold! The pate was fine for myself. The waitress was apologetic and returned with a hot bowl of soup, it was carrot... More

Went here for a family meal after the theatre and seemed ok to start with. Menu was good and varied with plenty of choice whatever your taste. Ordered the Bruschetta to start. It arrived and was bland beyond belief, absolutely no flavour. I ended up scraping it off of the bread and eating that. My main course arrived which was... More

Usually I refrain from going to hotel restaurants but having slept very little the night before I took what I had thought to be a risk. My compliments to the friendly stuff and broad list of menu items. All of us four enjoyed the food, even sharing some dishes. Bravo and keep going like that!

A good relaxed atmosphere, the goats cheese Wellington was excellent, the vegetarian meal very tasty and nice . Having had a morning meeting in the hotel in which we were very well catered for it made a nice relaxed end to the meeting. Not too busy and yes not empty with many couples lunching an entertaining lunch

I went here for my birthday with a few friends to try out somewhere new. I'd read reviews on it before I booked so was confident with my choice. However, I don't have any positives to say. I can't believe the quality of food I paid for. The leak and potato soup was completely tasteless, the pate was extremely watery... More

This is obviously a popular spot for both hotel guests and locals alike and I can see why. The bar and seating areas are airy and well lit and the quality of food, drink and service are very high.
