We try to offer some healthy alternatives whilst being aware that children can be fussy about what they eat when they are away. So we have some favourites and fun items to ensure your children feel catered for. We know ourselves that if your children are not happy eating where you choose to stay it can take the edge off your holiday as well.

The children's menu is served in the restaurant from 5pm to 8pm, half portions of the the a la carte or daily changing menus are available at half price until 9pm.
