    Two of us had the lemon sole which was very nice, my other friend had the lamb chops which was a small portion, served with chips, didn't feel this was good value.

    We were there as a family to celebrate my husbands birthday. There were four of us. All of us felt relaxed and well served while having a pre lunch refreshment in the bar. Our table was ready on time, service was efficient, polite and skilled and the food was excellent. Altogether a very pleasant afternoon and we were touched by the ' birthday plate' brought to my husband with his coffee. This was as the result of a small throwaway remark by me to our waitress regarding it being his birthday. Very thoughtful act and one that makes me want to return and to encourage friends to visit Hadrians

    HI, booking was done very easily and our table was ready for us when we arrived, service was great and food was nice my only issue was that there was not much atmosphere in the restaurant and althought he food was nice it was nothing which my wife could have not put together and the bill was expensive for what we had.

    We were a group of six adults and a toddler. Very friendly, pleasant and helpful staff. Comfortable seating etc, not overcrowded. We had a toddler with us and because of the space we felt more relaxed. Staff very accommodating when we had coffee upstairs in the Hotel. Food fine, one diner found the vegetables undercooked( broccoli and snap peas) The business lunch was good value.
    Overall a very pleasant experience and we have visited many times and hope to come again!

    Unfortunately everything that could go wrong with both service and food did go wrong. They did redeem themselves by not charging us for the burnt food. I know this is not their usual standard so would still recommend them
