Description
A character hotel and pub by the water - set among spectacular scenery and with outstanding views. Home cooked food served in our bars all year round and in the stunning Edwardian Dining Room restaurant during the summer season. Fresh, local & seasonal produce simply cooked & beautifully presented. Served in an informal & sometimes quite lively environment.
