    On arrival we were greeted by a member of staff who asked if we were staying or dining. I said we were dining in the Smith's Brasserie, and he told me where to go. He then took my car and parked it. In the Brassiere, the staff were very attentive. Food was most enjoyable and the evening was lovely. Will be returning.

    An average dining experience. Lovely staff but communications were difficult because of command of English language. Not much atmosphere, but very comfortable. Could have been cleaner - a little worn. On a sunny day there were no curtains or blinds so we had to move our table because the sun was too hot. The food was not exceptional but quite pleasant.

    Great location but food average 'pub grub' and overpriced. We used gift vouchers for a 3 course meal valued at £30 per person but the actual cost (inc. 'Optional' service charge) will cost over £50. Coffee cost over £5 per cup if service is included.
