We loved the ambience of the restaurant. The staff were very attentive and friendly. The food was delicious and the steak was cooked to my liking.

Good experience, waited in the bar for 10 mins until called through, the duck i had as a starter was great but the fillet steak was overcooked and dry.

The service was very good and the food was delivered quickly and was to a high standard. As we were guests at the hotel we ordered our meal and wine in the bar while we were having our pre dinner drink. The whole dining experience was good and we both enjoyed our meal.

The restaurant staff were fantastic. So polite, very efficient and nothing was too much trouble. Couldn't fault them in any way. The food was fabulous. Everything cooked to a very high standard using lovely, fresh (local?) ingredients. The only small niggle was that we were looking forward to some lovely crisp crackling on our pork belly and it was very rubbery and I couldn't eat it (which is a shame as it is my favourite part!). Having said that, we wouldn't hesitate to recommend it as everything else was spot on.

Great choice menu and the restaurant decor is very modern and gives the fine dinning environment. However sadly the food didn't live up to our expectations. Sadly clumsy cooking, over cooked and lacking in flavour.
