Food & Beverages

Dine in the canal-side Baby Swan Restaurant and watch the world go by. Watch the canal barges and colourful narrow boats, and the sometimes equally colourful characters on board or admire the abundance of local wildlife. The local swans nest on the canal bank here every year and proudly present their latest brood. The hotel is proud of its restaurant, which offers straightforward, tasty food, cooked by an experienced and professional kitchen team, dedicated to supporting local suppliers. Bill, the restaurant manager, not only cooks, but also entertains with his own individual style, cooking delicious flambé meals, including wonderful Steak Diane. Tempt your taste buds while you sit in the beautiful new conservatory on the canal side, with sweeping views of the hills and dales. The new conservatory is now available for the ultimate waterside dining experience and for private party hire. It is even licensed for civil wedding ceremonies. The view is wonderful both day and night and the atmosphere is great for family celebrations. You could also choose to relax in the hotel’s detached public house next door, the Snaygill Arms.
