It has now been confirmed that the next step of the lifting of lockdown will be going ahead from Monday 17 May.


From Monday 17 May the hotel will be open and our first guests will be allowed to stay overnight and of course to eat meals indoors.  The restaurant will be open to all non residents from Wednesday 19th and will be open as such from Wednesday to Sunday for lunch and dinner each week over the summer, where you can also eat in the courtyard and marquee.


The regulations are as follows:


Indoor tables can be of up to six people (rule of six) from different households or any number of people from just 2 households.  Groups seated outside may be of up to 30 people.


Everybody will have to sign in with the NHS Test and Trace app or leave their name and contact number upon arrival.

All orders for food and drink will be taken at the table and will be served to the table.  Bills and payment will be taken at the table.


The next and hopefully final step of the lifting of lockdown will take place on Monday 21 June.


Please give us a call or drop us an email to make a booking.


We are able to accept room bookings for reservation from Monday 17 May.  This can be done by pressing the Book Now button on the menu.
