The Lanes

A splendid Victorian property, this former rectory has a magnificent carved oak fireplace, high ceilings, spacious lounges and a piano bar.

Through the stylish chrome bar, you’ll find the brasserie-style restaurant in a modern extension, with floor-to-ceiling windows, wooden floors, mirrors, high-backed cream leather chairs and striking works of art on plain white walls. The crowd-pleasing menu evolves with the seasons and offers an imaginative range of dishes, including a few options in smaller or larger portions. Using good technical skills, the kitchen delivers dishes such as potage of clams and mussels, seared calves’ liver with grilled bacon and bubble-and-squeak and apple, cider and vanilla soufflĂ©.
