From traditional English breakfasts including grilled prime pork Lincolnshire sausages; scrambled eggs and a basket of seasonal fresh fruit.
The enhanced lunch menu offers hot and cold dishes from around the world such as crispy sweet and sour pork on aromatic rice with finely shredded spring onion and grilled Moroccan chicken on warm lemon couscous with chopped coriander. Hot and cold finger buffet choices range from honey roast ham with English mustard salad to vegetable spring rolls with an aromatic duck style sauce.
Sweet delicacies featured on the dessert menu are chocolate and peanut butter stack; raspberry tartlet with raspberry coulis; layered cappuccino and cream cake with a cinnamon crème Anglaise and vanilla ice cream.
