Wates House

Wates offers the perfect space to relax and enjoy some good food.  If you fancy a treat, come and visit Wates to try their new menu.

Wates is also a great place to grab a bite to eat at lunchtime. Following feedback and requests for a light and healthy lunch time offer, we have extended the offer with a daily lunch special board including soups and salads.

The bar has been relaunched with a fabulous range of cocktails including a great non-alcoholic selection, in addition to draught beer, cider and a range of bottle beer.

Keep an eye on our Facebook page and follow us on Twitter and Instagram for offers and news.
