Gourmet menu

The food at this place is designed for those who are interested in a new taste experience, like the steak tartar (beware this means raw as in not cooked) Not for everyone!

Yesterday 5 of us enjoyed lunch to celebrate my birthday. The restaurant wasn't busy and we were very well attended. The food was very good. my father & I enjoyed the steak sandwich which was prepared to perfection. Others feasted on house made soups and salads to their complete satisfaction. We will be back!

We stayed two nights at the Inn and had dinner both nights in the pub. The food was great, the desserts fabulous. I had the poached pear with vanilla and parsnip ice cream (amazing)! We also ate breakfast both mornings in the dining room and now we both have to go on diets.

Had 2 dinners/breakfasts included with our package and loved every meal. I had steak for both dinners and haven't had steak cooked so well ever. Breakfasts were very good and filling, and the service was very attentive and helpful.
