Suitable for celebrating a special occasion it is also just as great for a midweek lunch, high tea or evening meal.

The new lunch menu is suitable for everyone whether a lighter bite or a more formal three course lunch is required.

Everything is cooked to order and locally sourced – if not from the kitchen garden, then from local producers and suppliers. The onsite bakery bakes a daily selection of fresh breads, confectionary, jams, ice cream and desserts and provides full afternoon tea on a Wednesday for anyone wanting a special treat.

High Tea is served between 17.00-18.00pm during the summer (Sunday to Thursday) and offers a simple traditional menu accompanied by pots of tea; bread and butter; home cut chips and peas.

In the evening relax in the lounge in front of the log fire, or on the terrace with a pre-dinner drink whilst watching the sun go down. Take time to choose from the tempting a la carte menu before being shown to your table for a delicious dinner cooked especially for you.

The hotel also offers a unique Alfresco dining experience for small groups as well as private dining.

Once you have discovered this hidden gem you will find yourselves returning again and again!
