    We were out for anniversary dinner staying at your city hotel . My husbands fish was disgraceful the batter was brick hard nearly burnt and fish inside dry The manager apologised and said we would have free deserts the table in front of us had the same problem burnt fish . On receiving desert my husband had cheese board and I chose churros mine were brick hard not edible we ended up sharing the cheese board . We decided just to ask for the bill and leave . On checking our bill after we left the manager had taken £4 off our bill not both deserts as advised Disappointing food after being many times stayed at the hotel

    The staff were pleasant but the restaurant was scruffy and the food was poor. One starter was uncooked and the sauce in both the king prawn starter and the cod main tasted like a jar of passatta had simply been poured over them . I big disappointment.

    Lovely restaurant. Staff friendly. Service slow, starters and main very nice apart from portion size. Main was haddock with chips. Fish was massive, too large for 1 person. Churros for desert were rock hard and over cooked. Couldn't eat them. Floors dirty and stairs Wells very grubby with built up dust and dirt over several days. Nothing a good brush and mop would not put right
