Starters include;Pressed Ham Hock and Goats Cheese & Red Onion Tart from the Hot and Cold Counters, whilst main courses such as Whole Lobster mayonnaise and the Royal Seafood Platter can be selected from the Crustacea section.
The Hot Kitchen section offers additional main course options including; Sirloin steak, Tranche of halibut and the HDR beef burger. Sides include a selection of vegetables and salads. Desserts feature retro favourites such as Bakewell tart with raspberry ripple ice cream and Banana & Custard. A High Tea menu with delectable Lobster bridge roll, Welsh rarebit and Cake of the day are also on offer.
