Can I come for drinks in the evening?

Our inn becomes a restaurant in the evening we require the tables for our resident and non-resident diners. Therefore, we are not open to the public for casual drinking. We do not permit drinking at the bar or offer outside tables. Dinner service is reservation only to avoid any disappointment we recommend booking in advance.

Can we dine outside on an evening service?

We have tried to serve outside so customers can enjoy summer nights, the views and hear the brook babbling in the background. However, because we are close to the water, we do get midges appearing, it is not uncommon in the dale. We have taken the decision not to serve food outside. You are welcome to have a drink if you dare.
