Find this good restaurant in a Victorian-style orangery at this comfortable hotel; it enjoys excellent views over the beautiful St. Thomas' Valley; whilst in summer the dining room spills out onto the panoramic terrace.
The hotel offers good food of some description throughout the day - be it Breakfast, Light Lunches or splendid Afternoon Tea's. However, here we will concentrate on their à la carte & set price dinners which are offered between Mon-Thurs & on Saturday evenings (Friday brings an evening Buffet).
Starters such as 'Scottish Mussels, cooked with white wine, garlic & herbs'; 'Chinese-style Slow-Roast Duck with Plum Sauce'; 'Ministrone Soup'; 'Twice-Baked Stilton Soufflé with Walnut, Poched Pear & Rocket Salad'; 'Pan-Roasted Diver Scallops with Curried Parsnips, Candied Raisins & Coriander' and Chicken Liver Parfait with Red Onion Marmalade & Mixed Leaves' set the style.
Perhaps to be followed by 'Oven-Roast Loin of Cod with Roast Pepper, Tomato & Mussel Broth'; Roast Chump of Lamb with Puy Lentils, Curly Kale, Haggis Beignet & Rosemary'; 'Fillet of Lakeland Pork, with Braised Pig's Cheek, Sage Pomme Purée & Roasted Apples' and various Steaks and Chops from the Grill.
If you still have room you'll find the likes of 'Sticky Toffee Pudding with Butterscotch Sauce or Vanilla Ice Cream' and 'Warm Bakewell Tart with Blueberry Compote, Roasted Plums and Plum & Damson Sorbet' there to tempt you at the end.
