The New Hobbit Restaurant

Our restaurant is known for the exceptional quality of it's food. The farmhouse grill menu serves up a selection of mouth-watering dishes that are freshly prepared using locally sourced ingredients.
In winter you can get warm by our log fire as you tuck into a homemade pie or catch of the day, while in summer you can nibble on a Hobbit salad on the outdoor decking area overlooking the countryside.
We also do a hearty breakfast - just as well given that all that invigorating country air will no doubt fuel your appetite. Little ones are catered for with an imaginative childrens menu and, if you're here on a weekend, don't miss our Sunday Carvery with all the trimmings.

If you're feeling peckish but not quite hungry enough for one of our generously portioned meals, why not opt for a sharing board or Hobbit sandwich served with a cup of soup?
