At The Alverton bar we believe in good food made well. Locally sourced and seasonal ingredients are stars of the show, and great service is a must. The restaurant is the ideal lunch-time shopping pit-stop - a place to take the weight off and enjoy. If you're here for a business lunch we're moments from town, have great WIFI, and lots of free parking.

Book a table in the bar

"The long bar and gallery-like restaurant overlook a wide terrace; in summer, the huge patio doors swing open to a sunny aspect overlooking the grassy slopes. The food is justifiably AA double rosette starred. With impeccable service, each dish is a delight."
Manor Magazine
"Lovely bar, opening onto the terrace, where experienced staff give practised advice on wines. Food at the brasserie - comfortable, low-lit and relaxed - is generous both in its portions and flavours."
Telegraph Travel
"Minus the food, perhaps my favourite thing about the restaurant was the relaxed atmosphere. Based on the luxuriousness of our room, one could easily assume and expect a grand dining experience, but instead, an intimate dining experience enhanced by soft lighting welcomed us."
The Wordrobe
"It's a stylish hotel with a well-regarded restaurant which is elegant, sophisticated and colourful."
Tom Chesshyre, The Times
