We decided last minute to go for a birthday dinner, with our family.
Booked for half six, everything was lovely and relaxed until the end. Ten minutes after our mains arrived we were presented with the bill and told we had four minutes to eat up and leave! This was four minutes to eight. Apparently non residents have to leave at eight. While this may be the law, as it was pointed out to us, it was our first meal out in eight months and we hadn’t realised. If only they had told us we wouldn’t have ordered starters and would have ordered quicker. The beer garden is open til nine so it is a bit confusing.
The food was lovely and service other than that was good.
It’s just a shame we had to throw our food down our throats and ask for tubs to take the rest home.

We had a lovely meal at park hotel. Main meal & dessert , the only thing was didn’t have

time for a coffee due to our time being 6 30pm & closed at 8pm.This was no fault of the

hotel but due to restrictions of COVID .We will definitely go back & hopefully manage

a coffee & a glass of wine with our dinner. Thank you. 9th. May 2021.

Another great experience at the Park Hotel. The staff, as always, were outstanding. They are all great with the kids, friendly, attentive, and so helpful.
The food was excellent again. Good portion sizes, nicely presented, and very tasty. The chefs clearly take a lot of pride in their work and I've never had a meal which was not cooked to a high standard.

Lovely Christmas lunch. Food was delicious. Restaurant busy, as it should be at this time of the year. A great pity the SNATs deprived us of a glass of wine with our lunch, that was the only thing that I would have changed.

We throughly enjoyed our visit and the Christmas menu was excellent. We were slightly backfooted when the smoked salmon starter was served and instead of the slices expected was a piece of salmon which had been smoked. As some of us had ordered salmon for a main we enjoyed it twice but it was so good there were no complaints. We hope to return soon.
