The Oakroom Restaurant
Eight Bells offers a beautifully appointed dining room, The Oakroom Restaurant for your dining pleasure. Sticking with our old-world charm, we still use genuine silver cutlery and crisp white tablecloths and serviettes. All meals are served at the tables as we do not do buffet-style meals except for the self-service continental-style breakfast buffet portion of our comprehensive English Breakfast served every morning between 07:00 and 10:00.
Following tradition we ring the bell promptly at 19:00 every evening announcing that dinner is ready to be served. The Oakroom Restaurant is then elegantly set for the evening dinner and guests are welcome to come through for dinner served until 21:30. We offer a full a la carte menu plus a set menu when there are more than ten guests booked. We also offer a comprehensive wine list with some excellent local wines and firm favourites from vineyards further a field.
The Bosun’s Whistle Pub
Opens in the evenings from 18:00 for resident guests only and is the ideal place to have a quiet drink before or after dinner or to catch up on that important sporting event on the big screen. Apart from the excellent wines, we offer a full range of spirits, beers, ports, liquors and a few exotic brandies and whiskies.
Adjacent to the pub you will find our Elegantly Furnished Lounge with a fireplace lit on cooler evenings. The room includes a small library with a range of books and magazines for the reading pleasure of our in-house guests. It is also the ideal place to have a pre or post dinner drink or to relax in when the weather is perhaps not that great. Young children are not permitted in the adults lounge but there is a facility provided for their enjoyment.
The Billiard Room
For guests that fancy a bit of competition there is a full size billiard table and dartboard connected to the bar. The Billiard Room was the original homestead and it still sports yellow wood floors and ceiling boards.
Other dining options include our Indoor Sun Patio, Garden Terrace and Tea Garden for all day teas, beverages and light meals throughout the day.
There is also a service telephone located at the swimming pool for guests needing drinks or snacks whilst enjoying the sun and water.
