Restaurant and Bar

It is always an absolute pleasure to dine at the Damson Dene Hotel, thanks to its wonderful Heron View Restaurant. The menu offers a wide choice and there are also daily specials available, all of which are outstanding in quality. Whilst many restaurants these days can claim to use the finest locally sourced produce, very few can claim to use ingredients from their own organic kitchen garden like the Damson Dene Heron View Restaurant can. This results in the very best of locally produced dishes.

The Damson Dene bar is a pleasant place to relax and unwind. Comfortably furnished, it offers guests a wide range of drinks as well as snacks.
