Popped in for dinner and found it was Grill night (Thursday) so £15 menu included 250ml glass of wine with mixed grill. Nice looking specials on blackboard, but go early as things go very quickly. No need to say why!

Hello Therese, As Eliza mentioned we do not have our own car park, however there are many public car parks close to the hotel. The nearest one is on Beaumont Street, which can be seen from a couple of our bedrooms.
