The Restaurant

The Restaurant is decorated in classical style, with waitress service or sometimes a buffet style arrangement depending on the style of cuisine.

Daily lunches are served in the Restaurant from 12.30pm, offering a traditional, wholesome menu (displayed at least one day in advance outside the Conservatory). The two course menu represents excellent value for money and is enjoyed by residents who live in all corners of the village. Booking is not essential but is recommended, particularly on Fridays, when fish and chips are a very popular draw!

The Sunday Carvery is available every Sunday from 12.00 – 3.00pm. Booking is essential as it is extremely popular with residents and their families.

In the evening, tables are available for regular themed occasions from 6.30pm to 8.00pm. A typical month’s programme could feature a Parisian Evening, a Supper Club, an a la Carte Evening, a Pie and Peas Night and a Mexican Night. Friends and families are welcomed at all these events.

Take a look a selection of recent menus and a quarterly What’s On brochure detailing planned culinary events for this time of year. Printed menus and further information are always available in The Orangery or at Reception.
