Eat and Drink at the Inn on the Lake

Outdoor Dining

Eat and drink outside, surrounded by natural woodlands, calm lakes, and beautiful gardens. Wine and dine from our bar menu on the lakeside patio*, captivated by the panoramic lake views. Devour afternoon tea on the fountain decking, mesmerised by the gentle birdsongs. Enjoy refreshing drinks at the jetty, inhaling the botanical scents of the gardens. Or sit on the grass banks, watching the ducks forage amongst the reeds.

*The lakeside patio is exclusively used by weddings and unavailable on wedding days.

Step down into the Willow Bar, a calm and inviting room where the warm sun beams through the blue stained-glass windows and the soft blue walls flooded with antique paintings make you feel comfortable and relaxed.

Catch up with friends over a freshly brewed coffee, celebrate a special occasion with afternoon tea, or have some ‘me time’ and read a book from the Willow Library.
