Offering a host of freshly cooked English dishes every day, our menu is as pleasant as our surroundings at the Cedars Restaurant. We can seat up to 60 guests, and when youre one of them you can choose from three courses of sumptuous traditional English dishes, including 'Proper' puddings such as Spotted Dick.

Ok. But not great.

Whilst I appreciate we're just coming out of a time, there are little things here that they aren't doing, but others are. No food available, silly bar opening times, 6 -10.30? Even for residents. Bu... more

Dear Patrick Thank you for taking the time to write a review and we are really pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us. Our small Team at Cedars try hard to create a homely atmosphere. Our Breakfast Chef will be delighted with his accolade. We were due for a £2m rebuild & renovation and they managed to get the footings down before COVID hit - we hope to recommence this next year. We hope to see you again soon Kindest regards Julie Campbell General Manager
