    We loved our visit to the hotel. Food was pre booked, but we was not informed on the menu that turkey was on offer, although it was no issue to change our mind and have turkey. Food was hot and presented well on the plate. Staff very friendly and nothing seemed too much trouble.

    I took my husband to a Burlesque evening which included a 3 course dinner and a disco along with the singer and burlesque dancers. It was a very entertaining, well organised event and excellent value at less than £30 each.

    Very disappointed to find the carvery unit was broke so we had to have table service for our roast. Not ideal for me being a vegetarian in our party as I specifically chose Oakland’s for the carvery so I could choose my own vegetables.

    Macey our waitress gave an excellent service.

    I booked a bar food table based on the website, which offered a range of meals. Once there, it turns out only burgers were hot food. This was slightly disappointing but not a disaster.

    We didn't know if we had a reserved table, or were to sit anywhere, no staff seemed bothered to inform us either way.

    We were informed the website menu wasn't available, and we would have to have the 2 or 3 course menu, rather than fish and chips etc, and that some items were off the menu. This was not preferable, but was not a deal breaker, so we sat at a table.

    Some workmen were installing a new TV for the football, and without warning started drilling into the wall we were sitting it, we were given the option to move.

    However, we had ordered a glass of water when we got our drinks, upon seating at the table we noticed the glass had lipstick on it, so I returned it to the barman and asked for a different one. The barman who had served us water from the bar, decided to take this glass of water out to a back room, and returned with a "new" glass of water. We decided not to drink from it!

    We decided to find somewhere with an atmosphere more akin to what we were hoping for!

    Service poor - walked past 10 members of staff before being asked whether they could help. Food poor - chicken burger was left over chicken from carvery previously in the day in a bun, all food tasteless apart from the chips which had so much salt on them we were practically eating a load of rock salt without the potato! The desserts were also poor and all frozen food just heated up. It seemed as though the food was pilled high for the masses with little or no taste - hardly food for the diserning pallet! The toilet were grubby (you can always tell what a place is like by their toilets). The exterior and interior of the establishment needs to have some serious money being spent on it. The only nice bit seemed to be the terrace area. On entering we were faced with a sign directing left for the wake and right for the wedding, we were just looking for the only other life event of a christening!! Being that we went when the World Cup was on, there was a lot of 'tanked-up' individuals watching that on a large screen directly next to the dining area and when any goal was scored all of the football fans were heard cheering very loudly - hardly a romantic meal setting! Overall we won't be going back, we couldn't wait to get out. Its a shame as the place is perfectly situated and needs to have an overhaul on the exterior and interior of the building as well as the food.
