Pastroudis Bar and Cafe is where both guests and locals like to unwind and watch the world go by. Some stop by for a morning coffee or light snack, while others take their time over a hearty lunch or traditional afternoon tea.
Our bar menu includes sandwiches, paninis, sharing boards, burgers, steaks, homemade pies and beer battered cod and chips. And why not treat yourself to a naughty-but-nice dessert - sticky toffee pudding or a lemon meringue sundae perhaps?

Alison K, Thank you for your review, which I feel is grossly unfair. The directions for the hotel are very conveniently situated on our website. I think that you will find it is customary for hotels in this country as well as throughout Europe to take a credit card authorisation to cover any additional purchase that you may make throughout your stay. As you are aware no monies are taken unless you have made any purchase, or until you come to check out. I do appreciate that you had a problem with the door handle which was rectified immediately. The room most certainly does not smell of sewerage. Thank you for allowing me to respond. Alana
