Accompanied by a serious selection of wines, originally set up by the late Denis Hine and his particular friend, the late Bill Baker, and now overseen by son Giles and Manager Gilles.
We are exceedingly proud of our Cellar, as we are of our Kitchen. Both have won numerous awards, and are much loved by our guests from near and far. Talented new chef, Chris Exley has recently taken over the reins in the kitchen and is lifting standards and producing some delicious dishes, and delighting our guests. Everything is made in the kitchen, from the canapes and breads to the petits fours, and we use local and sustainable produce with the help of our loyal suppliers, many of whom we have dealt with for nearly forty-one years!
You can also see our extensive wine list awarded by both the AA restaurant guide and the Good Food Guide.

We serve the same food from the same Kitchen in the Restaurant and Bistro, but there is a more informal environment in the Bistro.
Our snug bar is open to everyone - not just residents - and indeed is an area where we see many of our friends.
Afternoon Teas have become amazingly popular in the past 5 years or so. We serve them 7 days a week from 3pm to 5pm.
