The restaurant is spacious bright and contemporary, providing a wonderful venue in which to showcase Robs beautifully crafted uncomplicated dishes. Using the freshest and very best ingredients, inspiration comes from Mediterranean and modern French cuisine, as well as taking advantage of lovely local and seasonal produce.

Our wine list makes it easy to try new things, because we have more wine than ever before available by the glass, thanks to our Verre De Vin system. In the afternoons we serve coffees and platters from our Deli counter as well as the most British of institutions afternoon tea, why not book one with some local bubbles from Hambledon vineyard.

Our Snug

A great space for a cosy gathering. Our Snug seats eight but we think you can squeeze a couple more in, so budge up a bit and enjoy a friendly meal for up to ten.

Down just a few stairs from the main restaurant The Snugs an ideal place for groups with younger guests. Your own space to spread out in if children get a bit fidgety, throw a cushion on the floor along with a colouring book and hopefully the adults can enjoy their time as much as the children!
