    Extremely expensive for what it is. The two and three course 'meal deals' do not include vegetables or potatoes so you need to add these on. Also the fish option had a £7 supplement that was not listed on the menu only told to us as we ordered. Ridiculous 20% service charge. We won't be going again. Pretentious and over-priced tiny portions.

    My daughter booked this hotel for a Christmas gift. The evening meal was booked with an offer it was from a set menu, myself and my wife decided to choose our meal from the main menu and we both thoroughly enjoyed it.
