As usual This Festive Period, we will be offering a Special Seasonal Menu which will be available from Monday 27th of November, through until Saturday 23rd of December. Two Courses or three will be priced at £22.50 or £26.50. We can for tables of 8 or more by taking a Pre-order for your food, but equally, we are happy to welcome smaller tables who have not booked a table without fuss. Everyone is welcome! Of course we would advise that you book a table to avoid any confusion, but we will will be offering our Festive Menu alongside our A La Carte Menu to walk in Diners. The Festive Menu is available at Lunch time and Dinner.

The only day of the week that this will not be available will be on a Sunday as we will be serving our all day Sunday menu throughout the month as normal. We will also be serving our Sunday Lunch and Roasts on Boxing Day and New Years Day. We can cater for Parties from 8 – 80 and you can hire the whole place if you so desire for a Private Party! Providing you take our 9 bedrooms.

On Christmas Day, we are offering Lunch from 12.00 Noon, with staggered sittings throughout the service. There will be half hourly slots from 12 in our Main Dining Area with the last sitting being at 3.30pm. We will not be serving Lunch in The Old Bar on Christmas Day, as this area will be for drinking only to avoid any confusion! The price for our 3 Course Christmas Lunch, with Coffee and Mince Pies will be £70 for Adults and £40 for Children up to Primary School age, plus a 10% discretionary service charge.


Between Christmas And New Year we will be serving our Sunday Roast Menu on Boxing Day, Tuesday 26th December and back to a more normal menu on the 27th December until New Years Eve. We will be open for Sunday Lunch on Sunday 31st from 12 Noon and our last orders on this day will be at 2.15pm as we will be preparing to turn the place around for our New Years Eve Party!!

New Year

We will be serving food from 7pm to 9pm on New Year Eve and there will be a 60’s,70’s and 80’s Tribute Band ‘Hippyhaze’ to follow in The Old Bar until the ‘’Wee Hours’’. Dinner will be a Five course Tasting Menu followed by Coffee and Petit Fours with a glass of Fizz and Canapes to start at you table. It would probably be advisable to try and order your wines before the night in order to give us a chance to chill it properly, or decant anything that needs it!! The Evening Tasting Menu and Live music is priced at £70 per head, plus a 10% discretionary service charge and you are also allocated your table for the duration of the evening until you wish.
