    There is zero signage to find the restaurant. It is located inside the best western to the right of the front desk. Our server was new and trying hard but mumbled a bit. The food was good quality and the location was superb.

    Delicious food - high end food. Must book. Hotel is frequented by coach parties so tables not always available. I should reiterate - the food is really good, don’t be fooled by the coach parties. We had a table overlooking the river with a great view

    From the outset things weren’t good. They had no booking for us, said we shouldn’t have been able to book online. The restaurant was for guest in the hotel only. They did eventually give us a table. Nice table at the window. From then on we were made to feel we were an inconvenience. Especially by the gentleman in charge of the dining room, which was completely empty. Two menus given which weren’t explained, one was set, and no prices. Food taste was good and presentation nice but unfortunately cold. At this point we just wanted to finish and leave. Maybe if you are a guest in the hotel they will put more effort in. Very dissatisfied and will not be rushing back.

    Absolutely loved our stay! Staff were welcoming and friendly, and our meal was amazing! Only downfall was our breakfast! Could have been much better. Overall though, lovely stay and will be back!

    What put us off most was the terrible music, it was loud and unnecessary. Food was uninspired and average quality. Service was very pleasant and was really the only positive thing about the experience.

    Very disappointing- I was retching at the strong smell of the anchovies in my Caesar salad . The signature burger - the rolls were falling apart as if they had been frozen for a while and compared to the restaurant my husband and I were in a fortnight ago the burgers were of a value range quality. I had been to a party night in the hotel where the food was really good but not now.
