You can enjoy our tasty brunch menu from 10.30 – 11.45am, including bacon, egg and sausage sandwiches - a great way to start your visit.

Lunch is served from 11.45am – 3pm and you can choose from soup, sandwiches, hot snacks or the main meal of the day. 

Sit down to afternoon tea from 3 – 5pm and enjoy tea and coffee and a delicious cake before you set off home.
