The food overall was very good although the breads with the starter could have been better quality. Not sure about the vegetables with the starter either; another dip of some sort would have been better.

Food was excellent. We had a few issues with service-slow to take initial orders and bring drinks, staff members pleasant but very lacking in knowledge about food and drink menu, no fish main course apart from ‘special’ which they had run out of

Excellent range of choices on the menu and we were very well looked after by staff. They provided excellent service and were able to recommend cocktails and gins and answer any questions we had about the food. The fish of the day dish was outstanding and so different to anything I'd had before. My husband got the steak and it was cooked to perfection. We also loved the crispy prawns to start. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal and will definitely be back to try more dishes on the menu. Great place, relaxed atmosphere, quality food and friendly and helpful service.

The best part of the dining was the waiter who served us as he went out of his way to accommodate my wife and I as the menu did not suit us which was very dissappointing and my wife ended up with a starter as a main course.

Bread roll on burger was stale. £10 caeser salad was expensive for a few bits of lettuce, some sauce, 10 croutons and 5 prawns. No atmosphere. Staff lovely but had to ask for the bill twice. 3 prawns as a starter. Very poor portions for the price. We had booked again but have now cancelled

We had lunch which lacked flavour and contained barely cooked bacon
The staff were excellent- friendly and professional and service was quick.
It doesn’t compare to lunch a few doors down at the Square Bistro and clearly does not have the standards of its sister hotel the Merchant.
Based on my experience we will not be back nor could I recommend it to anyone.

Ordered the half chicken each but it was not a half chicken as expected, was 2 portions which were not good quality. House salad was also disappointing and had no dressing? Lemon cake seemed burnt top and bottom.

The hotel is modern and well set out. Our room was a bit small, but comfortable, and at only £55 a night I can't complain. Service in the bar area was a bit slow and this is exacerbated due to Covid-19 as you are prevented from ordering at the bar. Still I think a few more waiting staff could have solved this problem especially as the bar was busy after 6 pm. As for dinner the food and wine was good and apart from an incident where the waitress (accidentally) set a napkin on fire, fairly uneventful. But again that problem with service raised its ugly head and the time lag between our starter and main course was a bit long. We also ordered tea and coffee to finish but it failed to materialise (no explanation given) so we gave up and just paid our bill.

Food was absolutely delicious, service a little lacking - we didn't get told the specials but heard them as they were being told to a different table. No check back on table to ask how everything was. Plates not cleared until we signaled to ask for the bill - no dessert/tea/coffee offered.

I’ve liked this small hotel since it opened last year and was delighted to ba able to lunch with friends inside once more.
It was very quiet but given the times we’re in that’s not surprising.
There was plenty of choice on the menu and the food was well prepared and presented.
Coffee was as ever excellent. As I was driving I couldn’t sample anything from the drinks menu this time around, but no doubt I’ll be back minus car.
The staff are all lovely and looked after us well.
I recommend a visit to anyone in town in need of refreshments, great spot.

Sunday was our first time in the Haslem, our new local hotel. We were delighted with the decor and service.
Ordered starters which were lovely. Main course let us down. Roasted Baby potatoes were very watery and rotisserie chicken was very dry and chewy. Disappointed as we have ate in sister restaurant yardbird and it is always excellent so we’re expecting good things.
It was not just my chicken as my son ordered it too and think his was actually worse than mine.
It will not put us off, and we will try again though maybe mid week as menu is more varied.
Service was friendly and excellent though staff knowledge maybe for hospitality was lacking, when paying they queried what a gratuity was????

Always make us feel really welcome and like nothing is a bother. Everyone is so friendly. I already thought this when I had been pre the last lockdown and now I’ve been back with a new baby in tow and they make us feel very welcome with him. I’ve been to other places since lockdowns have eased and haven’t had the same reception. Such a lovely place. And food and drinks are fab as well!
