So hard to know where to begin. Any folks remembering this Hotel from The early 1970s will remember it was A Berni Inn Steakhouse offering very good steak dinners late into the evening with staff decked out in the cheerful Berni Inn Bright Red Livery attire almost like an airline. The atmosphere was warm convivial & quality quite genuine. New management has long since taken over-decades past. What we have now is a reasonable Hotel restaurant with the kitchen open to view in modest dining area. No muzak as far as I can remember. It looks a little like a country tea room. Meals are competent if perhaps a little boring. Service is subdued perhaps a bit understated & seems to vary a bit depending on impressions of the customer(s). Blender type vegetable soups in small bowls,good meats though.side vegetables a bit plain and just a tad pricey. Its all very quiet & safe if not a little fearful perhaps lacking in confidence. Staff seem to change quite regularly. Nethertheless its probably the most centrally situated & the best in the town centre which isn't saying a lot in this town with one frozen butcher in the back of a car park 2 fish and chip shops and no independent fishmonger. Nearby alternatives are one or two Ethnic restaurants in Ock Street. Meals here were well enjoyed and overall no quibbles but not the sort of fun experience thatd make it to the once a month list though Christmas Dinner is I hear already Sold Out 5th November 2014.
