Eating Out

Eating Out

There is no shortage of great places for eating out in the nearby villages & towns. 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.

Due to Covid restrictions, some of these suggestions may be closed, or only open at restricted times or with reduced menus. Some may only be offering takeaways!

(Distances are approximate, as it depends which route you take!). Here are a few suggestions that we have tried:
