Being off season, the Ashford closes the cottage and moves the restaurant into the Dungeon Bar of the hotel. On the night we arrived, we were told the Dungeon was fully booked but we could order from the menu in the Drawing Room, which is the lobby area outside the George V restaurant. We were seated at a lounge table which was a bit too low to enjoy a meal comfortably. There was a man playing a piano when we arrived who was joined later by a guitarist and singer. They performed in the Drawing Room all three nights of our stay. Although a few of the songs were Irish, they also included Johnny Cash and Glen Campbell in their repertoire. For our dinner we shared a goat cheese salad and fried lump crab with glasses of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. We also had dessert which was a chocolate fondue with whipped cream. Our server, who was from the Phillipines, was very nice and attentive.
