Our light bright contemporary restaurant serves a menu to suit a range of tastes, with options for younger members of the family. Using the freshest seasonal ingredients it serves a diverse mix of modern British and European favourites sprinkled with spicy classics from further afield, along with a few sharing plates and sundaes to complete the picture.

You’ll find the likes of spiced lamb tagine, pan fried seabass fillet, Teriyaki salmon and mushroom ravioli, alongside beer battered local fish and chips, Kansas style bbq glazed spare ribs, 10oz ribeye steaks and our signature burgers. If you’ve any room left, you can try our refreshing lemon tart with clotted cream or our banana split sundae with sticky toffee fudge ice cream and whipped cream.

Guest Reviews

Excellent Hotel, Great Food

The breakfast buffet was great with plenty of choice. Even better though was the evening meal. The food was excellent quality and the service was brilliant too.
