The whole hotel revolves around the various dining rooms, whether it be the delicious breakfasts, relaxing lunches or great dinners 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 Local Wine Merchant, Andrew Goadby.
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!
