Description
Open all day from 7am Monday to Friday and on Sunday, and from 8am on Saturday, we serve a seasonal menu inspired by Mediterranean flavours. Within our open kitchen our chefs prepare dishes made using quality produce, traceable from farm to fork. Our meat, poultry and free-range eggs come from British farms, while our fish is responsible sourced and delivered daily. Sympathetically decorated and comfortably furnished, each of our 18 air conditioned guest rooms offers the usual amenities as well as some exceptional extras.
