The bar is well stocked, offering a selection of speciality cask ales and gins.
A traditional Sunday lunch with all the trimmings, is served from 12.00pm to 4.00pm. Feel free to relax in the garden or one of our lounge areas before or afterwards, to make the most of your time with us.
For a little bit of luxury, why not treat yourself and a friend to one of our delicious afternoon teas? They’re extra special in Spring and Summer as you relax in our delightful gardens, but if the weather is not so kind you can still enjoy the views and warmth from our cosy restaurant.
We provide a selection of sandwiches, cakes, scones with jam and cream, and of course a good old pot of tea or coffee.
