The bistro is simpler than the high-end Relais et Chateau dining, less pretentious and less expensive. Very nice ambiance in faux 18thC-style home.

The Hastings House building is an attractive English Manor home reproduction built in 1939. The setting is beautiful. We had a disappointing dinner considering the R & C label. The vegetarian starter was a salad. The vegetarian dinner option featured exactly the same salad as...More

While we were staying at the Hasting House we decided to "stay in" and try both sides -- the more relaxed (and less expensive) bistro side and the more formal dining experience. It's hard to make a recommendation -- both were fantastic and the menus...More
