Excellent lunch in the beer garden at The Bell. The food is delicious, we had a variety of beautifully cooked and presented small plates, all ingredients locally sourced. The beer garden is delightful and dog friendly. Well worth a visit.

To be honest I have no idea, I stayed in a lodge and never made breakfast once as the late nights did not readily transend into early mornings, the staff are really friendly and a quick call should get you the answer you need
