Dine by candlelight as the waterwheel turns

The Wheelroom Restaurant is small but beautifully appointed with ample space for 40 people.

A light and airy room by day, the Wheelroom with its flickering candles is transformed into a romantic evening setting with soft music by night and the constant turn of the waterwheel behind the glass partition enhances your experience whenever you dine.

Tables can be arranged to suit your needs, so whether eating alone, as a couple or with a party of family or friends the Wheelroom can accommodate you.

Your welcome at the bar is second to none, choose your dishes from the a la carte menu or specials board, then wander down to the Wheelroom where our fully trained, attentive but unobtrusive waitresses will look after you from starters to coffee and liqueurs

Excellent food.

We have always experienced good food and a very friendly reception from the owner and her staff. The Peacocks,geese and ducks are a bonus! Beautiful location.

We were married here in September 2014 and our family treated us to a night in the same room last night, 31st January 2016, as a birthday present for me. This included an evening meal and breakfast. I had a Tiger prawn starter, a steak main course and THE best cheese board I have ever had, as the third course.... More

Our group of 4 were able to have a table in view of the Water Wheel. A great talking point for us. Somewhat slow getting to table. Very quiet that night, no-one rushed to greet us, but eventually it ' all came together'. Our meals were ' delicious' and timely considering we had 4 different entrees. Table service was attentive...

This, if you are of a certain age, will most definitely conjure up images of that classic series. We've only been once, for lunch, and the food was fine but nothing special, and it was a bit like eating in a big lounge. The hotel gentle bustles around you, which I quite liked, and I'd imagine a wedding here would... More

Went for a 80th Birthday party here in October. Lovely place and excellent staff. Food recommended.The building is an old mill which still works and through the built in windows you can see the old workings.
