We are also open for evening meals from 6PM, both to hotel guests and non-guests, but reservations must be made and all food will be ordered remotely via an online menu and ordering system. All of our food is homemade and prepared on site, and we have updated our menu, keeping all the classic meals you love but adding a range of new dishes including our delicious Italian style thin-base pizzas.
We are still continuing our takeaway meals every evening Wednesday to Saturday, and our Sunday Roasts are also still available to takeaway.
