    The food was spectacular and plentiful. I had the loin roast and my wife raved about the Black Beef pie. Best food I’ve had anywhere for a long time and I travel a lot. The restaurant service was second to none but the bar linked to the restaurant was poor and the staff not engaged. The restaurant chairs are also heavily stained. A poor design choice just I think but by adding a bit of colour and something which is removable to wash would make a big difference. Overall, it was an enjoyable evening and the deal if it suited your tastes was more than great value. Would come back every day and recommend to anyone. Just get a proper bar manager and pro cocktail maker who has all of the ingredients at 7pm on a Friday night.
