Allergies and dietary needs

 Our a la carte offers plenty of choice for both meat and fish-eaters.

NUT ALLERGIES: we regret we are not able to accommodate serious and/or life-threatening nut allergies as we cannot guarantee the provenance of every item of food that comes into our kitchen.

For coeliacs or similar, we offer gluten-free bread (and toast) and advice on the many choices available on our normal a la carte.

For those with a dairy intolerance, we always have soya milk etc., available and can offer guidance through our normal a la carte.

We happily offer guidance on the  a la carte to guests who wish to avoid particular ingredients.

A separate vegetarian or vegan menu is always available. It helps us offer you a more interesting choice – especially at Sunday lunch – if you mention this at the time of booking. (Christmas Day lunch, Boxing Day brunch, New Year’s Eve dinner and New Year’s Day brunch are the only occasions when the published menu is the only one available.)


Evening A La Carte

Most of the dishes on our a la carte change every third day, except the most popular which are always on, e.g. steak & kidney pie. These sample menus are a reflection of what is currently on offer.

Anyone on a dinner, bed and breakfast package has free choice of two courses from the a la carte with no supplements or other caveats. A third course is charged at a flat £8.

Monday to Saturday lunch

Our Monday to Saturday lunch menu has a good mix of starters or smaller sized dishes as well as main courses – all very approachable. We do not offer a separate children’s menu.

For parties of 5 people or more, a £20 per person deposit – non-refundable unless we have 48 hours notice of changed numbers or entire cancellation – is required.

During the summer months we have a beautiful, sheltered Terrace restaurant open for lunch Monday to Saturday. You are welcome to book a table in the main restaurant for lunch, but the Terrace restaurant is first-come, first-served.


Sunday lunch

We recommend booking for Sunday lunch. The main course price buys either a starter or dessert as well. Main courses include our very popular 28-day, dry-aged Aberdeen Angus roast sirloin of beef, with all the traditional trimmings, and as pre-ordering has proven not to work, we suggest guests book earlier rather than later to avoid it having run out. A menu for children of 8 years or under is also available.

Festive or special menus

While menus for Christmas Day lunch, Boxing Day brunch, New Year’s Eve dinner and New Year’s Day brunch may well have the odd vegetarian dish on them, unlike every other day of the year we do not provide a separate vegetarian or vegan menu.

Throughout the rest of the year we are always happy to construct a special menu for parties celebrating a special occasion.


From Monday to Friday, breakfast is served from 8.00 – 9.45 am (last orders).  On Saturday and Sunday it is served from 8.30 – 9.45am (last orders). Room service continental breakfast is served between 8.00 – 10.30 am (last orders).

Non-residents are welcome to book breakfast which is charged at £18.50 per person .
