Cedars Restaurant

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.
