Food & Drink

Shutting Down Completely

These are unprecedented times. We are bracing ourselves for the impact of recent announcements and as an independent family run business, we are having to take extraordinary measures in extraordinary times to protect our customers, our team and our business.

We are therefore closing all operations with immediate effect as we believe this is the most responsible thing we can do to protect the welfare of our staff, the communities we serve and the National effort.

We have decided to halt all take away offerings and rooms. In the rare instance that you have a room booked, we will contact you directly.

Follow us on social media channels to find out more of what we are doing to continue to support our communities at this hour of need. Click to read more.

We serve food, seven days a week. From early breakfasts downstairs in our coffee & bagel bar from 7:30am through to late night bar snacks and everything in between.

In the main restaurant, you have front row seats into our impressive open kitchen, so you can see our chefs preparing your dishes. If you fancy a bit of added theatre to your dining experience you can take a seat up ‘at the pass’ so you can see all of the action up close. The venue itself is very unique, having been a ball room in yonder years, there is a huge amount of history within our walls and some of the greats including Clapton have graced the stage.

All our menus centre on the very best produce from around the county, picking the best of what is in season. We have become famous for our incredible sticky pork ribs and cote de boeuf to share. Most of our shellfish comes straight to us from the North Norfolk coast where we have our sister restaurant establishment The White Horse. 

From simple bar snacks, our great value seasonal market lunch menu, through to ‘the works’ on our main menus with Hermitage Rd twists you are sure to have a memorable dining experience with us. We have become famous for our ‘Host a Roast’ on a Sunday which is all the joy of having a family Sunday Roast at home, with none of the mess or stress. Pre-order only, a selected carver from the table will ‘host’ with a glamorous assistant from Hermitage Rd to help serve. Help yourself to veg and gravy down the table.

We can cater for a host of dietary needs. Some sample menus can be seen below…
