I celebrated a special birthday with friends and family at The Chateau. From the early planning stages Jeremy the restaurant manager was extremely helpful and accommodated all of our requests including a magician performing table magic. On arrival we started the celebrations with drinks and canapés on the terrace followed by a superb three course meal from a very extensive... More

I was meeting a friend who was staying at the nearby hotel and remembered the Chateau as being very convenient. I had only visited once in the past as someone's guest and was under the impression that it was very expensive. Wrong! I was very pleasantly surprised that there were set price meals for both lunch and evening which were... More

My wife, family and friends have been coming here for years. If you choose from the excellent set menus each person can get a fabulous 2 or 3 course meal in beautiful oak paneled surroundings with first rate restaurant service and ambiance at about the same price, or not much more, that you would pay in so many of the...

Looking at the traditional menu for Christmas Day lunch, or last night's set 3 course meal with excellent musical cabaret, one might be forgiven for thinking that this is not the place for vegans to eat ... but when we booked to take my father with us for Christmas lunch last year, and mentioned our dietary needs ...
