The Moorings

This family run restaurant has been run for nearly 20 years now and offers a wide range of hearty wholesome food for lunch or dinner.

The Grove

The two AA Rosette award winning restaurant The Grove has a historical heritage that goes back to the 18th Century, but it might interest you to know that the family that currently runs the successful business has been there since 1936. This completely independent establishment offers a wide range of accommodation options, but top of them all is the excellent fine-dining restaurant that is on site.
