We had our three dogs with us at the hotel for our first visit so decided to book Bruno's for convenience. Lucky we did as one of our dogs was crying at being left in unfamiliar surroundings. We had just ordered when Sandy came into the restaurant to tell us we were mortified but Sandy said we can set you... More

First course,mussels, overcooked, also many had broken shells, should have been discarded. Main course, duck, again overcooked and tasteless. Not quite bad enough to send back. Partners sea bass, smallest price of fish I have ever seen.Overall.very poor Quality and value

Beautiful restaurant, with friendly staff and amazing food. The waiter was helpful and couldn't do enough for us. We had the Valentines Menu, hand selected menu with a good range of courses. Food was very good. Will definitely be eating here again.

After reading the reviews we decided to try Bruno's restaurant. Very mediocre food. Meals designed to share arrived without serving spoons and were not very hot. Limited parking and the places that were free were 'reserved' so had to park elsewhere. Beware, 12.5% service charge automatically added to bill.

We stayed at Cottage Lodge and decided to eat at Bruno's as it was raining and late in the evening - so mainly convenient. And a good decision it most certainly was!

Stayed in the Cottage Hotel and ate here originally for convenience but the food and service was very good and would eat here if staying locally again. The steak and mussels were superb.

The restaurant, which is part of the Cottage Lodge Hotel, has a clean modern décor. We enjoyed both the fish and the steak.

It's a beautiful, small and intimate restaurant with friendly and attentive staff. The food was everything we hoped for: beautifully presented and delicious. Can't wait for our next visit!
