Bar & Lounge

The Bar is adjacent to the Restaurant. The opening times vary seasonally and the adjoining Lounge can be booked, for parties of up to 24 people and is an ideal room for an informal meeting or group meal.

The Bar menu is a typical pub style menu and all of the food competitively priced, with main course items ranging from just £5.95, and there is also a starter & light bites section and a section for children.

It makes for a perfect place to meet up with friends for a spot of lunch, a relaxed pint or just for coffee after a stroll around the lake.  Visitors are welcome to walk dogs around the lake but according to the countryside laws they must be kept under close control or on a lead in order to protect the abundance of wildlife and ground nesting birds.

Our menu served in the Bar & Lounge, the Restaurant and outside the Patio & Lawns which is English and homemade with items ranging from Full English breakfasts, sandwiches and chips, to fresh fish, burgers and steaks.  We are now also serving afternoon tea, available anyday, details are on the Menu (cover) below.

We are able to host private parties, functions, corporate days, weddings, funeral wakes, christenings, civil ceremonies, christmas parties, exhibitions, conferences, meetings and seminars.  We have live entertainment and dinner shows with dancing and a disco suitable for celebrations including birthdays, christmas, anniversaries, hen nights or just a good night out.  Go to the entertainment page to see the schedule.
