Garden Room Restaurant

Were firm believers in making the very most of local produce and seasonal flavours to give you a mouth-watering dining experience. Thats why our restaurant has rightly gained a reputation for excellence over the years.

The period feel of it, alongside the contemporary dcor, has created a relaxing and luxurious dining environment where you can enjoy a filling breakfast in the morning and hearty dinner in the evening. Homemade chicken and mushroom pie and slow roasted pork belly are among the sort of comforting delights you can expect here all with a twist of flair added by our skilled chef.
On Sundays we put on a delicious carvery, which is hugely popular with our guests and a great reason to book a weekend stay.
The view isnt bad either savour your meal while looking out over our beautiful gardens, complete with ancient church font and 17th-century sundial.

Thank you for your kind comments and also for the little giggle I had while reading it. I can confirm...drum roll...breakfast with Santa went without a hitch and Santa was on top form. We do hope to welcome you back again in the future and I’m sure we can entertain you once again.
