DINING OVER THE FESTIVE SEASON
As always, we are open to non-residents for all meals. Unless a menu has been pre-arranged for a small party, the lunch menu is à la carte or 3-course at £30. Lunch can be taken in the restaurant, lounge, bar and terraces. We are of course also open to non-residents for all meals, including our Christmas Day Feast, Boxing Day Lunch, and our New Year’s Eve Gala Dinner.
Perhaps you would like to bring family or colleagues for a festive celebration? We have private dining rooms which seat up to around thirty people, and will happily devise personalised menus – for lunch, dinner, afternoon tea, even breakfast! We are happy to take orders for up to ten in a party, but over that number we do ask guests to pre-order.
