The Whisky Lounge

Our Bar will be temporarily closed due to current travel restrictions. During this time, our team will be working hard to ensure the hotel is at its best, and ready to welcome you back soon.

The warm and cosy setting of The Bar is the perfect place in which to relax in elegant surroundings and enjoy a glass of your favourite tipple, or perhaps try something new from our impressive selection of beverages. Meet friends in the Bar and enjoy sampling a vast array of expertly created cocktails, from well-known favourites to creatively inspired choices. Whisky lovers will enjoy relaxing in the traditional Whisky Lounge with an impressive choice of the finest whiskies from Scotland, Ireland, Canada, USA, South Africa and further across the globe.

Our knowledgeable Bar team will be on hand to guide you through the extensive menu and help you choose from the list of Whiskies, Cognacs, Wines, spirits and cocktails and pretty much anything else you can think of!
