  Evening Dinner

We’ve gone “farmhouse kitchen style” here focusing on quality produce and flavour in a home cooked menu style. After a long day exploring what the area has to offer, come back and relax in our choice of comfortable dining areas to enjoy what Jose, our chef, has to offer. We’ve asked him to concentrate on quality and sustainability, to offer two delicious dishes based on the rhythm of the seasons with one of them always being a vegetarian dish and to liven things up to offer a daily special as well. Three courses and a house cheese with bread and coffee or tea comes in at £27 per person.

Catering for our guests with special requirements is of equal importance to us, and we take intolerances and allergies very seriously. Make us aware of your specific needs and we will plan for you.
