We invest in locally sourced ingredients which reflect seasonality; we're sure you'll taste the difference.

Our food is freshly prepared, locally sourced (where possible) and bursting with flavour.   Just as it should be.

The Lounge is a firm favourite with those in the know; come and relax amid smart surroundings, whilst enjoying efficient, friendly and unobtrusive service that will make you want to linger a little more.  Our menus are regularly updated to reflect seasonality, with a wide selection of dishes to suit all tastes and budgets.  Don’t be afraid to ask for recommendations – there are lots of staples that keep our regulars coming back for more, and we are also happy to recommend wines to match.  We will happily cater for varying dietary requirements too – just call the reception team on 01507 609169 if unsure. 

Please note that all menus are regularly updated, but should be treated as sample menus.  If at all unsure, call the reception team to check.
