Changes to dinner service – from 10th September 2021 for the foreseeable future
A shortage of waiting staff has meant we have had to rethink how we can offer dinner to our guests. At present, we can’t offer our full menu and can’t offer full table service. What we are going to offer is a buffet which we will serve from 7.15 until 8.30pm. On the buffet will be soup, a choice of hot meat, fish and vegetarian dishes with vegetables and a salad along with a selection of desserts and cheeses. Please do let us know if you would like to have dinner on any night of your stay. Thank you in advance for your understanding.View a Sample Dinner Menu
The hotel dining room seats around 40 people and the tables are arranged around the room to take advantage of the beautiful views from the windows and the french doors which open on to the garden. In the winter months, the wood burning stove is lit.
What we like to do, in the country house tradition, is to invite you into the bar or sitting room to have a drink and look at the menu 15-20 minutes before your reservation. We will take your order and then show you to your table when the kitchen is ready to start serving your dinner. The table is yours for the evening, we are not going to ask you to move along.
Although we have smart white table cloths, shiny glasses and uniformed waiters and waitress the service is friendly but not fussy and the atmosphere is far more relaxed than the traditional country houses of times past. Jackets and ties are certainly not required but always nice to see.
We are happy to have children in the dining room if you think your fellow diners will be happy with them. We do offer a high tea for small children around 6:30pm served in the conservatory. You can feed them and then tuck them into bed before coming down to enjoy dinner together. Please ask at check-in if you would like high tea for the children.
If you would like to have a special event or party we have a lovely private dining room that seats up to 20 and we will work with you to create a menu for the evening.
Should you have any allergies or special dietary requirements, please do let us know.View a Sample Dinner Menu
