    Afternoon tea with generous servings of sandwiches and scones, meaning that we were too full to finish our cakes. Good selection of teas and coffees too. We were seated in a quiet area away from the main dining room, which was really nice, but we did feel a bit ignored by service staff as a result.

    We went for afternoon tea and had a lovely experience. The waitresses were all very polite and attentive throughout the time we were there. The food was lovely and enjoyed by all of us. They also did well accounting for a variety of dietary requirements around the table.

    Sunday Lunch excellent, third time we’ve been. I’d say best Sunday roast out for a long time. Definitely recommend

    Food was really good and the decor in the restaurant lovely. It was quiet when we visited which was a a shame but not unexpected for the first week of January.

    The service was terrible, first time ever never left a tip. We were taken to our table and then left given menus. after about 20 mins they came and asked if we had decided and said no as we were given the wrong menu, they assumed never asked if we were Groupon menu which we were not. They eventually bought the standard menu. At no time until we asked did they ask if we wanted a drink. They then came back 10 mins later and asked if we had decided, we then said do you think we could have a drink. everyone around who came in after us had been given a drink and some had even received their meal. When food came the starter was terrible but I suppose what you would expect for £3.50 but Tortilla put on plate just as they have put straight from packet Guacamole very bland. Main meal was quite nice but size of it I did ask question whether we were being given Groupon food. We were in a booth, very unprofessional staff were hanging over the back panel to talk to us and take away plates etc. Even basics like salt/pepper sauces we had to sign for staff to come back to get these. This restaurant is run by someone who has not got a clue about etiquette so how can he train these young people who I am sure are still at school in day the correct way to treat customers. I have to say we will never be visiting this restaurant again. How it ever got a 4.5 star on bookatable I don't know.

    Food was excellent ... a good menu and clearly a good chef. All staff were very friendly, polite and helpful but in some respects they did appear to lack experience.
    Some improvement could be made to the atmosphere in the restaurant. It is large and open ... felt a bit like a "canteen".
    Our guests were all favourably impressed and all said they would come again.

    Delicious food but expensive prices. Quiet and comfortable (sofas) lounge area. Temperature in restaurant and lounge too low. Guests felt cold the whole time. Waiting service could’ve been better. Often had to chase up staff and orders.

    This is constructive criticism.
    Food was very good. Fresh baked bread to complement the starter was not so good.
    The staff and service was superb. The fastest service I have ever experienced, anywhere.Superb.GREAT STAFF.
    It was a strange hotel and dining room. No clearly recognisable reception area. Seemingly a table opposite the entrance (which again wasn't clearly identified).
    The whole establishment needs 'softening' up. No pictures on walls in dining room; in corridors; in reception; in toilets etc.
    Needs a feminine touch to give it a big shot of homeliness.
    Far too austere and 'cold'. Remined me very much of 60's and 70's Russian hotels.
    The lack of soft furnishings and carpets etc made the restaurant sound like an industrial canteen. The noise bounced off of the walls and it was difficult to hold a conversation.
    A great shame because the staff and food were of high quality.
    Outside lighting and signage needs to be significantly improved. The route back to the carpark at night was very difficult and leaves you open to slips and trips. Better path and directional lighting would be a massive advantage.
