Food & beverage
The restaurant features vibrant colours, silk blinds, window seat and fun artwork but maintains the quality hallmarks of The Morritt with the original oak panelling and wood block flooring. The Morritt restaurant offers a relaxed and informal atmosphere with a contemporary menu featuring the best of local and continental produce.
There are a choice of eating areas, whether your choice be the delightful restaurant, the bistro, or during the summer months, you may choose to have your meal sitting in the beautiful landscaped gardens. The backdrop from here has proved inspirational for many known writers and artists, Charles Dickens being just one!
The Dickens Bar is very much a traditional bar in a traditional setting, with its famous mural painted by Gilroy. What could be nicer in those cooler winter months than sitting by the roaring log fire whilst enjoying a pint from the selection of local ales on offer?
There are 27 bedrooms in total, 21 in the main building with a further 2 in the courtyard and another 4 in the cottage, all located within the hotel grounds. There is no lift at the hotel as we are a Grade II listed building, so rooms in the main building are located either on the first or second floors. The 2 courtyard rooms are first floor bedrooms; however, each of the 4 cottage rooms are on the ground floor with parking directly opposite. One of these rooms has accessibility for a wheelchair.
All rooms allocated will be with double bed unless requested, the exception being rooms for sole use which may be twin bedded, unless otherwise requested.
Whether you are staying for a short break or a longer holiday, there is a wealth of things to do and places to visit in the nearby area. Historic houses and gardens, castles, abbeys, Roman ruins, craft and antique shops, horse racing, motor racing, wildlife sanctuaries and countryside walks are just some of the options available to you.
For more specific information, there is always a vast selection of information leaflets and maps available to our guests.
Whatever you plan for the day we're always happy to prepare picnics and offer advice, and you can be sure there will be a warm welcome waiting for you on your return.
