Only 1 person serv ing up to about 20 tables, the bar and clearing/clearing tables. Wait for everything drinks, ordering food, the food and the bill. Other staff around but they generally served other tables and room service orders.

I don't expect much from hotel restaurants, but this was lower quality than usual; Fish and Chips you normally can't ruin, but it was dry and tasteless. I'd challenge the 'homemade' tartare sauce - seriously, whose home? Take a walk down the road, you get...More

Lamb was nice, treacle tart was cold and hard. Service brilliant. Prices are fair and wine list is decent. Would return.

Returned this week for coffee and cake with two colleagues. I had forgotten how peaceful and lovely the view is from the restaurant. From the front of the hotel you would never know what a lovely aspect the restaurant has.

As the title says, the lady behind the bar was great - knows what she is doing, does it quickly and is very friendly. Plenty of space to stand or sit in a group too.

Something unique is happening at Clippers Gourmet Gallery. First, you help yourself to the gorgeous, mouthwatering starters, from smoked fish and terrines to salads and seafoods. Then, when you order your main course - and the specials change daily - it is prepared in full view in the central cooking gallery. As much fun as a cabaret! Wok-cooked dishes are sizzled on the spot from your own combination of ingredients. Vegetarians are particularly well-looked after, as the chef will discuss their requirements and create a dish to their taste. The ambience is informal and relaxed, the restaurant is filled with delicious sounds and aromas of cooking - great for couples, groups and families. The friendly service is a treat too.
