    The restaurant is open on one side to the reception area, on arrival we were told they were very busy and no tables for two, sat in middle on table for 4, despite having made reservation, and there being plenty of spare tables. Waited 15 mins before anyone asked us if we'd like a drink. We ordered drinks and starters together. The starters arrrived before the drinks. We asked where our drinks were, they then brought us the wrong drinks and so we'd half eaten our starters before our wine arrived. No wine glasses were brought, but 'luckily' we were on a table for 4 so we used the spare. Then waited 40 mins for meal. Worst steak I've ever had, fatty and gristly, over cooked. Sent it back. We'd not been given a steak knife or new cutlery. Luckily we were on a table for 4 so we used the spare, again we used the spare from the table and my husband struggled with the knife on the tough steak. Second worst steak ever arrived. Still over cooked, fatty and gristly. The side order of veg was now cold. But we were then given steak knives. Starters were pretty decent. The waitresses apologetic, but they didn't see what needed to be done. It was chaotic. When we finished our meal, all tables for two still empty. In fact the restaurant was hardly busy at all. Service charge on the bottle of wine was on the bill! That would be the bottle of wine we waited 25 mins for. We refused to pay the service charge and questioned the bill, as the main course has been so bad. The waitress was apologetic but didn't seem to know what to do. We paid the bill and went straight to hotel reception. Reception staff were helpful and refunded us half the food off our stay.

    Lovely waiter who was very attentive. Food service was excellent, no long waiting times. Food was good quality and portion sizes were more than enough. I couldn’t eat all my mains. Fish and chips is really impressive, a very big piece of fish and generous with the chips. Choice of sauces available to accompany your meal. Lovely meal would recommend this restaurant.

    Lovely relaxed setting with attentive service. We booked a table at 6pm as we had a show booked at 730pm and the menu online showed Sea Bass. When we arrived the menu did not include this and we were advised that it was a seasonal menu but still appeared online. The menu was very meaty with limited fish dishes. We were restricted by time so had one fish starter and some chips which was very nice but not what we had planned.

    Lovely food. Lovely environment with live piano music. Was able to have a conversation without having to shout to be heard and not to hear other peoples conversations. Staff were very attentive to us although they were very busy. Not enough staff to cover volume of customers.

    Spoilt for choice. We three chose different options for all three courses. Every one was excellent. Service staff very efficient and helpful.

    Great food, great atmosphere, poor service Took fifteen minutes to take our order for drinks and our food, drinks didn't arrive and we had finished our starter, we had to ask where they were, the rest of the food was amazing, until we got our bill, they put a 17% service charge on top, which we think wasn't right, considering the service we received, also we should have been told about this perhaps?? Don't think we'll be going back.

    We were seated promptly and greeted with a smile. The food was excellent and the service was even better. We were staying at the hotel and when we checked in it was already quite late. We were thrilled that the restaurant was still open. Not crowded at all and the noise level was very low. We'll be back!
