Restaurant Details The hotel's menu includes pub favourites, pasta dishes, pizzas, meat, fish and vegetarian dishes, salads, steaks and burgers, though not all dishes can be part of the meal deal. We'd start with dough balls with a melted garlic and herb dip, olive oil and balsamic vinegar, followed by chestnut, mushroom and goat's cheese wellington with saute potatoes and fresh vegetables for our main course. For dessert, we'd be tempted by the lemon meringue sundae - and maybe a liqueur coffee or Costa coffee afterwards.
