Are children welcome? We wanted a relaxed lunch/ early tea with children? TIA
Sorry it’s taken me a while to reply. Not sure that I would take children there myself. We are a couple in our 50’s and we felt pretty young compared with pretty much everybody else we saw during our two day stay. It’s quite “proper” if you know what I mean, white table clothes, lots of glassware and quite a sophisticated menu. The nearby Hix restaurant would probably be a better bet, it was buzzy when we went and there were plenty of kids of a variety of ages knocking around, more kid friendly food choices too. Lovely area, plenty for young children to do, we saw a tour of 6-10 year olds fossil hunting (our kids would have loved it when they were younger) and they were having tons of fun. Best wishes.

I see there is now a new terrace within the garden which looks lovely but just wondering are the sun loungers and chairs etc are still available on the grassed area as they were in previous years?
Dear Herbs772 Thank you for your question, the sun loungers are now situated on our decking area overlooking the Cobb, we have deck chairs for guest use on our lawn. Along with a beautiful swing seat and benches located close by. Kind regards Sean Smith General Manager

At £300+ per night is the hotel and food worth trying? Trying to find somewhere on the South Coast and just want to make sure the experience is nice. Thanks
It's a really good place . Particularly like the sumptuous breakfast , and the afternoon tea
