Elegant dining, tempting menus and personal service – ingredients that make the restaurant popular with residents and locals alike. Dining is a pleasure with delicious local produce featuring on the four course table d’hôte menu.

You will also see Chef carving succulent local roasts at your table from the silver carving trolley.
The finest of food deserves the finest of wines, so through glass doors in the restaurant a stunning walk-in wine cellar displays the hotel’s wine and Champagne collection. Feel free to browse and choose your own wine to compliment your dinner.
