Liked: Cleanliness
Disliked: Staff & service, amenities
Modern decor but soulless, could do with a cosy bar area! Dinner was interesting - starter (which was a sausage roll) was served with chips and gravy! Main - curry was served on a popadom and Nan, which meant the whole thing was soggy!! Staff were slow & untrained… overall they need to up their game!!!
