We plan to re-launch The Dining Room at Cross Lane House in 2020. Watch this space! 


In the meantime, we are delighted to be running a small plates and bar menu for guests and passers by, to enjoy in the evening by a cosy log fire and a bottle of wine.

We will also be rolling out 'Pop-Up' dining events with a number of local chefs. Keep and eye on our event page for more details and to book your tickets.


Our cosy Bar and Lounge is the perfect setting for drinks and something to eat. 

We believe in supporting local businesses first. Think Exmoor Botanical Gins, Dorset Vodkas, Somerset Ciders and Lagers. 


Everything else is a bartenders wall of fame; Scottish Malts and French Cognacs to name but a few. We have a well selected wine list - so there is something for everyone.

Is there a group of you coming? Let us know in advance so we can reserve you an area or just walk in and say, "hello"! We would be delighted to welcome you.
