    I was looking around for somewhere to eat locally and came across this place. To be honest we were a little unsure because it is part of a hotel. The setting is to be honest comfortable but un-prepossessing and even in the summer although there's a terrace the view from the window is whichever way you look at it basically a car park. On the plus side there's plenty of easy free parking, I think you'd be unlikely to seek this place out if you weren't driving or staying here for a specific reason.

    The interior is also a bit out of date although the dining furniture is very comfortable.

    My partner and I both had the same thing which was salmon fish-cakes as a starter followed by rib eye steak.

    The prices reflect the quality of what's on offer, but the tastecard makes the price very competitive.

    ***The food was absolutely faultless ***. The fishcakes were packed with fresh perfectly cooked salmon, deep fried and served with pureed peas and a mustard dressing which worked well.

    The steaks were properly matured, very tasty and served with chips and a side salad all of which were extremely good.

    The menu includes a number of international options some of which seem a little incongruously arranged and that needs some thought. There isn't a vast choice but most will find something acceptable.

    If you're looking for a romantic atmosphere or that wow factor to impress someone with then this isn't the right place, but if you want a reliable alternative to cooking from fresh at home when you can't be bothered then this really is worth a try, there is a chef who knows what he is doing here.

    Service was polite and unobtrusive and we felt perfectly comfortable throughout the meal which we thoroughly enjoyed.

    Highly recommended based on the quality of the food. "
