Menu Book a room

Unique settings, delicious food

As part of our re-opening measures we are working to ensure we balance the 'new normal' with the Bailiffscourt you are familiar. This includes the creation of a new range of delicious menus which enables the kitchen to work together, safely spaced. Thank you for your patience as we adjust our menus accordingly and please note the menus and serving timings may be a little different next time you visit. All table reservations must be booked before arrival and timings may be staggered to allow for physical distancing. Please note if you arrive without a reservation you may be asked to wait or be turned away.

Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, mid-morning coffee or a full afternoon tea. With its medieval architecture, mullioned windows and tapestry-hung walls our restaurant is a stunning setting. Or you may like to tuck yourself away in one of our extremely comfortable lounges or simply order room service.

When the sun shines head outside to our rose-clad courtyard or rose garden.

Breakfast: 7am to 10am (Sunday 8am to 10.30am)
