We still serve our Sunday lunches in the Restaurant but recently have made some changes to the way we serve. We can now also serve Sunday lunch in the Bar & Lounge, and in the Restaurant itself we now serve it plated from the kitchen, so you order it at your table and don’t have to go up to the Carvery, the chefs will plate it for you and it will be served to you at the table. This is a more formal style of service, it allows it to present the food on the plate and make sure all components of the plate are served nice and hot.
It also means that we can now serve other menus items in the Restaurant, we can now offer our famous Fish & Chips, Burgers which are always popular and about another 5 or 6 items to choose from.
We take bookings from 12pm to 3.30pm.
The Sunday menu varies weekly but we have posted a sample menu to give you an odea of what is available.
High chairs are available but please book these when booking your table. All tables have a view of the lake due to the 180′ panoramic windows, and the room is flexible enough to book parties of all sizes.
For larger parties of 10 or more guests, we offer a set menu based on a 3 course Sunday lunch. This is a choice of 4 starters and Dessrts and a choice of Roast meat lunched, Beef or Turkey or a mix.
Please ask about this at the time of booking. We will ask for a deposit on booking with full pre-payment one month in advance of the event.
When taking the 3 course option, you are welcome to bring a celebration cake with you, we will serve it to you after your meal, and supply plates, cutlery and napkins.
