That said, on any evening throught the year, when we're not cooking dinners, we are happy to offer an equally delicious, 2-course, light supper, specifically for our unsupported walkers & cyclists. Just let us know when you're making your booking, we'll be happy to oblige.

Irene’s cooking has proved to be very popular indeed so, on most evenings, you’ll find some or all of our guests round the dining table, enjoying one of her splendid home-cooked meals. If you would like to join them, we’d be delighted, again please let us know at the time you make your booking.

For our Dinners, she conjures up a delicious, fixed "Menu of the Day", depending on what fresh ingredients are available and carefully taking into account any guests' dietary needs or preferences that we know about. Take a look at the typical menu items listed below, which will give you a good idea of the sort of dish you may get to enjoy.
