Bistro Dining


‘BaBar’ has a bistro feel, serving excellent local produce in a simple and classic manner.

You can even choose to dine al fresco in our enclosed garden (perhaps with a cold glass of Louis Roederer champagne in your hand - weather permitting!) whilst you mull over what to eat, or get dressed up and sip a Singapore Sling in our intimate cocktail lounge.

Our ethos continues behind the bar, where you will find well conditioned ales from local breweries, alongside more common tipples.
