Menus

Our Fine-Dining selection offers a choice of two Lunch menus: our great value, nostalgic, Sharrow Through the Ages; and the Gourmet Menu. These are available Monday to Saturday, excepting Sundays when we offer our popular, Sharrow Through the Ages Sunday Lunch - what else would we do! Lunch is served from 12 noon.
 
In the evenings we have the Gourmet Menu; and our Tasting Menu, which can be paired with a Wine Flight to further enhance your dining experience. This pairs wines specially selected by our Sommeliers with your menu choices - to further enhance your evening. Dinner is served from 7pm.
 
We also offer an informal Light Menu, served in the lounges and on our beautiful lakeside terrace when the weather permits - Summer evenings are blissful as the sun sets behind the mountains. It is also available with room-service if you just wish to relax in your room with a favourite film or an all important sports fixture.
Our chefs are passionate about developing menus that use the finest, freshest, locally-sourced ingredients; the dishes served in the restaurant are the culmination of years of cultivated talent, passion, and the best local produce combined.
