The bar restaurant is the perfect place for Hotel residents and locals to meet, have a meal, or simply raise a glass or two. Join us and catch up with your friends in front of the log fire in the bar; book an intimate table in the restaurant; or reserve a larger area for your club or family gathering; and have a good time. Our kitchen is open from breakfast to dinner, handcrafting seasonal dishes using fresh local ingredients as often as possible.
