‘I spend a couple of months each year Down Under and am always touched by how much Australians love the idea of Christmas in England. They think of cosy warm pubs, twinkling Christmas lights, shops full of Christmas fayre and above all a week or two of indulgence in lovely food and wine. A time too, they say, for catching up with people in an atmosphere imbued with heartfelt celebration during the dark days of winter. It makes me all the more look forward to thoughts of lively parties in our restaurants in Cornwall, Winchester, Sandbanks, Marlborough or Barnes, Christmas shopping in Padstow and taking advantage of our two day stays in our lovely bedrooms.’
Join us in Winchester, Sandbanks, Marlborough and Barnes to enjoy our special festive menu – available for both lunch and dinner.

"At Winchester I love coming in from the historic high street to our bright and cheerful restaurant with comforting dishes."
"At Sandbanks maybe a lunch with that exquisite view of Poole harbour watching the sun go down warmed by a glass or two of wine."
"In Marlborough the Hardy-esque market town feel is increased by the charming, small, rooms and thoughts of hake casserole."
"At Barnes the Thames flowing by, a lovely warm dining room with the last leaves dropping from the trees overhanging the river."
