Eating Out

There is no shortage of great places for eating out in the nearby villages & towns. It is advisable to book, particularly at busy times of the year, especially bank holidays or in the school holidays – even at weekends!

Some offer vegetarian choices but you may need to phone in advance to check. Also, you should let them know if you have any food allergies – most can oblige.

(Distances are approximate, as it depends which route you take!)

However, here are a few suggestions that we have tried and can recommend, with a few guidance comments:
