The Longstone Restaurant

The spacious Longstone Restaurant, situated within the main hotel, offers guests a traditional dining experience with a tranquil atmosphere and excellent customer care.

The menus make use of quality vegetables, and fresh meat & game sourced from local award-winning butchers.  The menus change seasonally and are supplemented by a daily specials board which makes extensive use of fresh fish.  

Our dishes are created by a team of Chefs under the watchful eye of Head Chef, Rob Cochran, who hails from Australia.  

Current favourites include 'Braised beef with home smoked garlic mash, glazed shallots, Chantenay carrots and pancetta crisps served with a rich red wine and girroles jus' & 'our local Gloucester Old Spot sausages served with creamy mash, vegetables and onion gravy'

To finish - 'our delicious sticky toffee pudding with butterscotch sauce and vanilla ice cream' or 'Chocolate Nemesis', our delicious chocolate dessert to rival all others!

As all of our dishes are freshly prepared and cooked to order using fresh ingredients, we can accommodate special diets eg. Coeliac, Vegetarian, Vegan, Dairy Free etc. without prior notice.

Please take a moment to look at our menus opposite.

To compliment the food, there is a great wine menu, excellent views from the large windows, full table service and a large roaring fire in the colder months.

The Longstone is also available for corporate and private functions, and the room can seat up to 60 people for dinner, and 80 people for a buffet.  

Party menus and corporate rates are available upon request.
