Fantastic location. On entering your first impression is of a dated holiday camp reception but get past that and you enter a lovely restaurant with the most fantastic views. Lovely carvery with the largest Yorkshire puddings I have ever seen. Does get very busy

Bar meals are open all year round (check as certain times only open Fri-Sun), the restaurant section I don't know as it has changed from 3rd party to the actual owner of the site. Best to call first.
