The food and service in the bar and restaurant are fantastic. The bar is quite popular in the vicinity too. The carvery is actually quite cheap, the main menu reasonable, and the wine menu extensive. Fruit, cereal, bread, and other goodies are included wi

Parking Galore.

There is plenty of parking, so if you want to bring a vehicle, you are in luck.
