Food and drink
You’ll be offered locally-sourced British dishes with a twist and portions are big (a little too big for me). Carnivores will be in their element with choices like fillet of beef (£24.95), venison loin (£19.75) and pan-fried pheasant (£16.50). I really enjoyed the complimentary ravioli amuse-bouche the last time I ate here but my large cheese soufflé starter and gnocci main prevented me from squeezing any dessert in.
The bar next to the restaurant is a popular hangout for local office workers – I enjoy sampling the cocktails here. The restaurant is more of a formal affair with couples celebrating occasions, hotel guests making the most of a good hotel restaurant and local businesspeople impressing their clients.
As you would expect in a five-star hotel, the service is very attentive...sometimes slightly too attentive – I have only managed to pour my own wine once here.

Prices here aren’t cheap - starters average £8, mains £18 and desserts are £6.50. Keep an eye out for offers on voucher sites though – at the moment some are offering 25% off all food.
