There's been an inn on this site for hundreds of year, and you can benefit from some of this historical atmosphere if you choose to drink, or have a snack in the bar.
If wishing to eat more seriously the dedicated restaurant offers an interesting menu - with starters, such as 'Salad of Honeyed Duck with Caramelised Baby Beetroot, Blue Cheese, Red Chard Leaves and Honey & Walnut Dressing'; 'Crab & Ginger Spring Rolls with Washabi Mayonnaise & Oriental Salad' and 'Warm Capricorn Goats Cheese with Orange & Chicory Jam, Toasted Walnuts, Raisins & Rocket Leaves' setting the style.
Mains might include the likes of 'Saffron & Chorizo Risotto' (which can also be taken as a starter); 'Roast Fillet of Sea Bass with Pan-Fried Scallop, Creamed Potato, Candied Lemon & Pea Purée'; 'Roast Rump of Lamb with Roasted Aubergines, Creamed Puy Lentils, Spiced Aubergine Compote, Green Beans & Red Wine Sauce' and 'Roasted Chicken Supreme with Celeriac Purée, Tarragon Gnocchi, Wild Mushrooms, Pancetta & Red Wine Sauce'.
If you still have room, or can't resist a pud - you might have 'Glazed Lemon Tart with Lemon Sorbet with Lemon Curd Coulis' and 'Knockerbocker Glory' there to tempt you.
