We are proud of our AA Rosette Restaurant

We are one of a small percentage of restaurants in the UK awarded the coveted AA Rosette.

Our food is cooked to satisfy with its taste and not to pander to fashion.

But you will be pandered to.

This award-winning food is professionally (and joyfully) served to you by a front-of-house team with full knowledge and first-hand experience of each dish, and who will always be on hand to advise and guide should you have any special dietary needs.

We consider ourselves very lucky to be able to provide our guets not only with a comfortable bed and a delicious breakfast but also with award-winning food, making your stay with us as pleasurable and stress-free as possible.

You can book a table in our AA Rosette Restaurant easily through out front desk or by calling 01202 557363, we are perfect for special occasions and also pre-theatre dinners as we are just a short walk from both the BIC & Pavillion.
