A warm welcome awaits you

We welcome you to our stunning contemporary restaurant which opened in November 2014. Eat, Drink, Relax and Enjoy in delightful surroundings.

Our head chef and his team offer a wonderful selection of freshly prepared food, from sumptuous baguettes, crisp salads, delicious homemade soups, mouthwatering chef’s specials to roast of the day from our carvery and a superb selection of hot and cold desserts.

We welcome families and offer a great choice of hot meals from our children’s menu or select 5 items including a drink from our pick and mix junior explorers cold selection.

Families with younger children can follow the junior explorers footprints into our dedicated family jungle area, spot jungle animals and complete a junior explorers activity handbook.
You can also relax and catch up on the latest from CBeebies on the wall mounted TV.
