  • 4 star review  Great to drop in for snack if you don't want to sit in restaurant for a larger meal. Hubby and I didn't have a lot of time for lunch. Called in and sat at a small table with comfy chairs near the bar. Not many around at the time and music was just a bit too loud. Asked if the music could be turned down and it was no problem. Sports show on TV and the manager obliged and put the sound up so we could eat and catch up on our team news etc. All in all a great experience during a rushed day. Beautiful food, reasonable price and very welcoming service.

    4 star review  If you are looking for a centrally located hotel that offers comfortable accommodation, great views and atmosphere then you have found the ideal place. Staff are friendly and knowledgeable and are more than willing to assist where possible. Meals are quite large and well priced and can be washed down with a glass of your favourite cold beverage

    4 star review  We had dinner at the pub with my partners family. This pub is quite nice. The restaurant had beautiful views to the water. Was lovely to eat with that view. My meal was a Prawn and chorizo fettuccine. It was delicious. The 3 others had steaks all which were cooked differently and to their likings.. Happy all round. The desserts were great as well.. I would definitely go back and recommend it..

    4 star review  Tonight for dinner. Less of a review more of a supportive comment. While can't guarantee it table next to us sent meal back as 'not cooked .... one meal salmon? Staff redid it. Same complaint. Handled perfectly by staff .... huge congratulations to both wait staff .... eventually .... having eaten a large amount of both meals customers accepted a refund. Mmm. Our meals cooked to perfection, precisely as ordered, served with smiles. Afterwards I had to reassure chef and kitchen staff and waitress of our total satisfaction with food and service.
