Dining and 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.

Chef Luke Moore

The traditionally decorated restaurant is named after a local festival dating back through the years.
Savour the culinary tradition that takes hearty inspiration from the diverse and local ingredients and produce of an English growing year. The alcove area can seat small dinner parties up to 16, with more tables looking out over the grounds of the hotel
