    I have gotten food here before and I thought it was excellent but I would avoid it on match days and it is very busy and felt the wait was a bit long ..again I can understand as it was match day. Another point would be that we were sitting near the big automatic door and I have to say it was freezing with the breeze coming in so that didn’t help but I won’t knock it completely as I have ate before on a less busy time and it was excellent

    What a shame. Last year we had a hair in the food which we dealt with by having a discreet word with manager.This year the service was so slow that we were there from 7.45 till 10.45 and if it wasn't for the staff being friendly we would have left.I realise it was busy but other tables were coming and going while we waited.As a business owner I just thought you would rather know.The staff are very young and seemed a bit confused at times.The manager Charlotte was very helpful but was flat out trying to direct other staff members.We love the hotel and owners and would come back but improvements need to be made.Regards mark Farrell.

    Good food maybe slightly pricey??needs more veggie options but the veggie burger was nice?? there were 5 of us, and it was match day so I know they were busy but we were squeezed into a small table! Book in advance if it’s match day!! There was no chicken curry pie which my son , whose 16th birthday it was, was disappointed about??

    I ordered the steak pudding. The whole thing was totally dry as a bone. You can get many times better from a Fray Bentos tin. Also the gravy was insipid. Good quality great tasting gravy makes the meal, the chips were the worst reconstituted mush I’ve ever been served. I could not eat them.
