We pride ourselves on using the freshest, local ingredients we can find and ensuring that we take advantage of seasonal foods. Our proximity to the coast provides us with excellent access to the best seafood products on our doorstep.

Our Head Chef Keith Parton and his team are constantly ensuring that we keep refreshing the menu with new and interesting dishes and produce a range of daily specials.

The Crooked Barn

The Crooked Barn Restaurant was opened in 1996 and its uniquely “crooked 16th-century beams” provide a wonderful ambience to enjoy the food of Head Chef Keith Parton.

We’ve had 12 consecutive years of obtaining two AA Rosettes, which is a testament to the quality of the food. Keith has introduced a variety of daily specials and exciting dishes.
