We closed the restaurant some years ago but if you want to bring in food, don’t hesitate to ask for plates and cutlery. We would prefer that you eat in the Guests Lounge/Breakfast Room rather than your bedroom.
We recommend several restaurants around here and details are in the room folder as well as on this page. We do recommend that you book as early as possible to ensure that you get to eat in the restaurant of your choice.
