Restaurants & Bars

With the launch of the new menu this year Robert has sourced and introduced lots of local produce and still values the "we serve all our guests" and not the buffet style of service now common. His talented team of chefs serve up their exciting creative interpretation of classic and modern dishes and compliment it with lighter snacks that run throughout the day.
