Description: Junpier, formerly The Restaurant @ Clarice House is a charming, intimate spot set in a sensitively-restored Jacobean-style mansion. The dining room, with its conservatory, is a lovely combination of traditional style with modern élan in a relaxing atmosphere. Clarice House hotel is a family-run spa with all the trimmings, so you’d expect restaurant meals to be full of goodness and brimming with taste and you’d be absolutely correct. Choose the detox menu if you must, the vegetarian option if you like, or simply enjoy the plethora modern British dishes. Absolutely everything on the menu is made in house, from the bread and sauces to the desserts.

Pleasant lunch but a bit heavy for midday meal when spending day at a Spa. Not really when coming alone.

“Superb meal!”
Reviewed August 18, 2012 via mobile

Arrived at 7.30 Saturday evening - shown to table immediatley, staff were attentive and helpful. Chose from the A la carte menu, starters arrived quickly. Lovely scallops. Main course followed also quickly. Slight change to menu at our choice was catered for easily. Meals were hot and beautifully presented. Cheese board was superb - good selection. A lovely meal around! Service was attentive and helpful. Have been several times now and would return.

cold restaurant, staff not interested in seating you away from draughts, feels like you're on a conveyor belt, food not overwhelming either
