I ate here while staying at the hotel last year. It was Saturday night and I was dining alone, so was a bit apprehensive. The staff however were lovely and I got a seat next to the window. I had 50% off my meal which made it very affordable; not sure I would have wanted to pay double, but I enjoyed what I had. Often when I'm eating alone, I eat quickly and tend not to have 3 courses, but felt...more

Had dinner here since we were hungry from the Eurostar trip from Paris. Well I'm so annoyed that we went there as the food was very basic and below average and we were pretty much ignored.
