Olde Barn Restaurant

With its original wooden beams and wrought ironwork, our Barn Restaurant showcases the history of the original building. It's a lovely rustic setting for a mouth-watering evening meal or leisurely buffet breakfast.

Our adventurous menus change daily but expect the likes of braised beef steak with mashed potato and red wine and thyme gravy, and grilled seabass with new potatoes and a lemon butter sauce. All our dishes are lovingly created with seasonal ingredients where possible and can be complemented by a selection from our wine list.

On a balmy summer's evening, dine al fresco in the courtyard in the shade of our parasol tables.

Opening hours
Breakfast: 06:30 - 10:00
Dinner: 19:00 - 22:00
Weekend times may vary

Gravity Bar

For a more informal environment, head to our stylish contemporary Barn Bar, which serves local real ales and hearty pub grub using locally-sourced ingredients. It's an ideal spot for a business lunch, family gathering or snack with friends.

Our bar menu includes warm cheesy nachos with a salsa dip, Lincolnshire sausage and mash, battered cod and chips and a selection of sandwiches. It's available 7 days a week, and food chosen from this menu can be eaten in the restaurant if you prefer. We also have a special children's menu to keep the little ones happy.
