George Runciman Restaurant

Like the master joiner from whom it takes its name, the George Runciman Restaurant is far from ordinary. With an AA rosette awarded for the highest standards in cuisine and service, this is more than just another hotel restaurant. It’s a venue to savour dishes that are highly imaginative, beautifully presented and crafted using only the best seasonal produce from the local area. Mouth-watering menus matched in quality by an eclectic wine list for an experience that is more than just a meal.
