    Upon arrival service was fined very attentive as the day went on, team either finished or went on break, no additional drinks offered and had to go find someone to pay. No check back done on food, if it had been I would have mentioned my chicken was only lukewarm at best. Overall it was a little disappointing.

    Although the food was outstanding the service was poor, particularly at the bar . I felt sorry for the restaurant staff as they were rushed off their feet and trying their best. Definitely needed more help. The bar staff seemed more interested in chatting than serving.

    Everything was just great, service as usual excellent, good choice of food, would recommend without hesitation, first time my husband has been since all the changes and he was very impressed, we have booked a special meal for our family to celebrate the life of my late Mum, in August, and I am sure it will be first class.

    Well that’s the dearest chicken tempura and chips - £17.75 - not worth it. When I raised this with the staff - a shrug of the shoulders - that’s the service you get at the hotel!

    My second visit in a couple of months, the reason I returned was due to the delicious food at a reasonable price. It was also beautifully presented. Well spaced tables so we weren't overhearing conversation from neighbouring ones. The staff members were very friendly but professional. There's a nice atmosphere as well. Enjoyed my evening very much.

    Our go to restaurant for special family occasions, another beautiful meal in the Blues last night. Food was spectacular as always. Service was fast and the staff were very accommodating and friendly. Such great variety on the menu to choose from. It was my dad’s birthday and the waiter surprised us at the end of the meal with a mini ‘happy birthday’ desert platter which truly was a lovely touch from the staff. 10/10
