Festive Fayre is now closed - please check back later in the year for our 2014 menus.

The festive season is always a popular time at our Bar & Bistro and our menus have plenty to seduce you. Our Seasonal Fayre (lunch or dinner) throughout December and our Christmas Day Lunch are always extremely popular.

Please call the Bistro direct on 01902 791917. Early booking recommended.
